Floral characters in angiosperms may be involved in different relationships in order to ensure and maximize pollination. To assess these relationships, which may provide insight to understand floral evolution, we analyzed 14 floral characters in 23 species of Philodendron and 20 species of Anthurium, which are tropical long‐living plants bearing spadiciform inflorescences. Contrary to what has been reported in the literature, no correlations were found between the pollen volume and either the… CONTINUE READING
