Flowers exhibiting a large corolla encompassing a wide inner space, characteristic of bee-pollinated plant species, are postulated to be maintained by a natural selection mechanism related to their pollinators. To confirm the existence and to elucidate the mechanism of such selection, we investigated the effect of floral traits on male reproductive success (RS) and its components in experimental populations of Campanula punctata and C. microdonta (Campanulaceae) under pollination by Bombus… CONTINUE READING
