UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY While mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla) is one of the most important forest species in the Amazon region, little is known about its reproductive biology. Knowledge about the nectary structure and dynamics of nectar production of this species represent a key step toward understanding its relationship with pollinators. • METHODS Mahogany tree floral buds and flowers in anthesis were collected, fixed, and processed for study by light and transmission and… CONTINUE READING
