Invariant properties in coevolutionary networks of plant-animal interactions
Plant–animal mutualistic networks are interaction webs consisting of two sets of entities, plant and animal species, whose evolutionary dynamics are deeply influenced by the outcomes of theExpand

Invasion of pollination networks on oceanic islands: importance of invader complexes and endemic super generalists
Abstract. The structure of pollination networks is described for two oceanic islands, the Azorean Flores and the Mauritian Ile aux Aigrettes. At each island site, all interactions between endemic,Expand

Recent reviews of plant-pollinator mutualistic networks showed that gen- eralization is a common pattern in this type of interaction. Here we examine the ecological correlates of generalizationExpand

Structure in plant–animal interaction assemblages
We present a comprehensive approach to detect pattern in assemblages of plant and animal species linked by interactions such as pollination, frugivory or herbivory. Simple structural models produceExpand

Centrality measures and the importance of generalist species in pollination networks
Studies of complex networks show that nodes with high centrality scores are important to network structure and stability. Following this rationale, centrality measures can be used to (i) identifyExpand

Lizards as pollinators and seed dispersers: an island phenomenon
Abstract Although it is well established that many insects, birds and mammals serve as important pollinators and seed dispersers of flowering plants, the role of lizards in these processes hasExpand

Structure of a plant–flower‐visitor network in the high‐altitude sub‐alpine desert of Tenerife, Canary Islands
Confined within a volcanic caldera at 2000 m a.s.l., the sub-alpine desert of Tenerife, Canary Islands, harbors a distinct biota. At this altitude the climate is harsh and the growing season short.Expand

Spatio‐temporal variation in the structure of pollination networks
Pollination networks are representations of all interactions between co-existing plants and their flower visiting animals at a given site. Although the study of networks has become a distinctExpand
