Fruit set is pollen-limited in the self-incompatible tree Heterophragmrna quadriloculare (Bignoniaceae), pollinated by long-distance flying carpenter bees, and in the self-compatible shrub Lasiosiphon eriocephalus (Thymeleaceae), pollinated by weak-flying, sedentary beetles. We studied a single H. quadriloculare population over high and low flowering years and found no difference in bee visitation rates between these years. For H. quadriloculare, neighborhood floral display did not make a… Expand
