  • BACKGROUND AND AIMS Based on the bell shape and greenish colour of the flowers, bat-pollination was suggested for some Sinningieae species (Gesneriaceae). Actually, there are no reports on pollination biology and visitors for these species. This paper reports on pollination biology of Sinningia brasiliensis, Paliavana prasinata and P. sericiflora in south-eastern Brazil. METHODS Flowers were observed in situ to determine phases of anthesis, colour patterns and scent intensity. Corolla… CONTINUE READING
