Pollination Syndromes and Floral Specialization
▪ Abstract Floral evolution has often been associated with differences in pollination syndromes. Recently, this conceptual structure has been criticized on the grounds that flowers attract a broaderExpand

Floral Character Displacement Generates Assemblage Structure of Western Australian Triggerplants (Stylidium)
We studied the pollination ecology and assemblage structure of 31 species of Stylidium (Stylidiaceae) at 25 sites in Western Australia. The number of species per study site varied between two andExpand

Comparative analysis of late floral development and mating-system evolution in tribe Collinsieae (Scrophulariaceae s.l.).
Species of Collinsia and Tonella, the two sister genera of self-compatible annuals that constitute tribe Collinsieae, show extensive variation in floral size and morphology and in patterns of stamenExpand

Transcriptional responses of Arabidopsis thaliana ecotypes with different glucosinolate profiles after attack by polyphagous Myzus persicae and oligophagous Brevicoryne brassicae.
Plants are equipped with a range of defence mechanisms against herbivorous insects. In cruciferous species, jasmonic acid, salicylic acid, and ethylene along with glucosinolates and their hydrolysisExpand

A multivariate search for pollination syndromes among penstemons
The seeming ubiquity of spatio-temporal variation in pollination regime suggests that flowers ought to be adapted to a wide range of pollinators, yet many comparative biologists perceive that inExpand

Covariance and decoupling of floral and vegetative traits in nine Neotropical plants: a re-evaluation of Berg's correlation-pleiades concept.
Nearly forty years ago R. L. Berg proposed that plants with specialized pollination ecology evolve genetic and developmental systems that decouple floral morphology from phenotypic variation inExpand

Integrated phenotypes: understanding trait covariation in plants and animals
Integration and modularity refer to the patterns and processes of trait interaction and independence. Both terms have complex histories with respect to both conceptualization and quantification,Expand

Improving assessment and modelling of climate change impacts on global terrestrial biodiversity.
Understanding how species and ecosystems respond to climate change has become a major focus of ecology and conservation biology. Modelling approaches provide important tools for making futureExpand

Members of at least two unrelated genera of plants, Dalechampia (Euphorbiaceae) and Clusia (Guttiferae), attract pollinators by secreting resins from floral structures. Bees that pollinate theseExpand
