Hummingbird-Pollinated Floras at Three Atlantic Forest Sites1
Abstract We studied 86 species of hummingbird-pollinated flowers and their pollinators at a coastal lowland site and two highland rain forest sites in southeastern Brazil. The Jaccard index forExpand

Bat-pollinated Flower Assemblages and Bat Visitors at Two Atlantic Forest Sites in Brazil
Abstract A comparison between bat-pollinated plant assemblages at two sites in different altitudinal ranges covered by the Atlantic rainforest in southeastern Brazil is presented. The lowlands (5–90Expand

Pollination and reproductive biology of twelve species of neotropical Malpighiaceae: stigma morphology and its implications for the breeding system.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS This study on reproductive biology examines the stigmatic morphology of 12 Brazilian Malpighiaceae species with regard to their pollination and breeding system. METHODS TheExpand

Bat pollination ofEncholirium glaziovii, a terrestrial bromeliad
The many-flowered, brush-like spikes ofEncholirium glaziovii, a ground-dwelling pitcairnioid bromeliad of the “campo rupestre” formation of southeastern Brazil, was observed being pollinated by theExpand

The role of nectar production, flower pigments and odour in the pollination of four species of Passiflora (Passifloraceae) in south-eastern Brazil
The pollination biology of four species of passionflower was studied in south-eastern Brazil, specifically the importance of chemical features of floral nectar, pigments and odours. All speciesExpand

Processes entangling interactions in communities: forbidden links are more important than abundance in a hummingbird–plant network
Understanding the relative importance of multiple processes on structuring species interactions within communities is one of the major challenges in ecology. Here, we evaluated the relativeExpand

Avoidance of achromatic colours by bees provides a private niche for hummingbirds
SUMMARY That hummingbird-pollinated plants predominantly have red flowers has been known for decades, but well-investigated research studies are still rare. Preference tests have shown thatExpand

Beyond the pollination syndrome: nectar ecology and the role of diurnal and nocturnal pollinators in the reproductive success of Inga sessilis (Fabaceae).
Inga species present brush-type flower morphology allowing them to be visited by distinct groups of pollinators. Nectar features in relation to the main pollinators have seldom been studied in thisExpand

Nectar by day and night:Siphocampylus sulfureus (Lobeliaceae) pollinated by hummingbirds and bats
Most species of the neotropical genusSiphocampylus are believed to be bird-pollinated. The pollination biology ofSiphocampylus sulfureus was studied in a montane region in SE Brazil. This species hasExpand

Aechmea pectinata: a hummingbird-dependent bromeliad with inconspicuous flowers from the rainforest in south-eastern Brazil.
The pollination biology of Aechmea pectinata (Bromeliaceae) was studied in a submontane rainforest in south-eastern Brazil. This species has a mainly clumped distribution and its aggregatedExpand
