Abstract.We present a survey of moth pollination in woody species of the Cerrado of Central Brazil. Although with the exception of Roupalamontana (which has simple polysepalous flowers arranged in dense cymes) all moth pollinated species in this community have tubular flowers, or a pseudo-tube formed from a single folded petal in Qualeagrandiflora, settling moth flowers (tube less than 15 mm) vs. hawkmoth flowers (tube more than 50 mm) are markedly different in size. Moths visit some 20 woody… 
Pollination systems and floral traits in cerrado woody species of the Upper Taquari region (central Brazil).
TLDR
There was a grouping among species with some pollination systems, such as those pollinated mainly by beetles, moths, birds, and bats, for which inferences based on the floral traits are recommended in cerrado sites.
Reproductive biology of Vasconcellea quercifolia A. St.-Hil. (Caricaceae), a moth-pollinated ‘highland papaya’
TLDR
Control pollination experiments show that V. quercifolia is a xenogamous species that depends on its pollinators to set fruits and anemophily and apomixis occur very seldom.
Settling moths are the vital component of pollination in Himalayan ecosystem of North-East India, pollen transfer network approach revealed
Majority of the pollination related studies are based on the diurnal pollinators, and the nocturnal pollinators received less scientific attention. We reveal the significance of settling moths in
Floral adaptations to nocturnal moth pollination in Diplomorpha (Thymelaeaceae)
TLDR
The present study is the first to examine the pollination system of Diplomorpha and suggests that these plants exhibit a range of floral features associated with pollination by nocturnal moths.
Can Nectar Be a Disadvantage? Contrasting Pollination Natural Histories of Two Woody Violaceae from the Neotropics
TLDR
First pollination data on Neotropical species of Violaceae with actinomorphic flowers is presented, finding low fruit set seems to result from diminished pollen viability through nectar contact in P. blanchetiana and pollinator limitation in A. longifolia.
Pollination syndromes in a Caatinga plant community in northeastern Brazil: seasonal availability of floral resources in different plant growth habits 1
TLDR
A relationship between the temporal distribution of the pollination syndromes and the availability of floral resources among each growth habits in this tropical ecosystem can function as a strategy for maintaining pollinators and therefore the reproductive success of plant species.
Pollination and dispersal systems in a Cerrado remnant (Brazilian Savanna) in Southeastern Brazil
TLDR
The frequencies of melittophily and zoochory observed in diverse tropical areas were the main feature that allowed the formation of distinct groups in the dendrograms generated by cluster analysis.

Pollination ecology of Caryocar brasiliense (Caryocaraceae) in Central Brazil cerrado vegetation
TLDR
Caryocar brasiliense is self-compatible although it sets significantly more fruits when crossed than when selfed, and most of the fruits and seeds are formed through the action of the flower visitors, despite the fact that about 20% of the non-visited flowers receive self pollen on at least one stigma.
Pollination of Leuhea (Tiliaceae) In Costa Rican Deciduous Forest
TLDR
The partial breakdown of incompati- bility, diurnal pollinators, and nectar analysis of L. seemannii suggest an ongoing evolutionary shift to diurnalpollination resulting from the scarcity of nocturnal pollinator and selection by diurnal in- sects, especially stingless bees, in the deciduous forest.
Pollination biology and breeding systems of six Vochysia species (Vochysiaceae) in Central Brazil
TLDR
All six Vochysia species occurring in cerrado vegetation or gallery forest in central Brazil were studied and all six species were found to be self-incompatible with self-pollen tube rejection, usually accompanied by callose deposition, occurring in the mid-style.
Evidence for moth and butterfly pollination in Gladiolus (Iridaceae-Crocoideae)
TLDR
Comparing the pollination systems of related species, it is inferred that night-flying moth pollination arose 6 times in the Gladiolus genus, whereas butterflypollination arose 3 times inThe 165 species of southern Africa, and that the two lepidopteran pollination system arose quite independently of one another.
Angraecoid orchids and hawkmothe in central Madagascar: specialized pollination systems and generalist foragers
TLDR
A considerable guild of Malagasy plants exists that exploit the fuel demands of long-tongued hawkmoths, and a corresponding guild of plants with long nectar spurs or corolla tubes should exist.
MUTUALISTIC INTERACTIONS BETWEEN UPIGA VIRESCENS (PYRALIDAE), A POLLINATING SEED-CONSUMER, AND LOPHOCEREUS SCHOTTII (CACTACEAE)
TLDR
Active pollination by senita moths in the presence of co-pollinators supports the prediction that active pollination can evolve during a period of coexistence with co-pol- linators.
POLLINATION BIOLOGY OF GNETUM (GNETACEAE) IN A LOWLAND MIXED DIPTEROCARP FOREST IN SARAWAK
TLDR
The prevalence of entomophily inthe Gnetales (i.e., Gnetum, Ephedra, and Welwitschia) may suggest that unspecialized insect pollination originated before the divergence between the G netales and angiosperms.

Abstract In this paper, I review pollination systems in which plants provide breeding sites as a reward for pollination. I divide the pollinators into three groups based upon ovipositing sites and
Plant reproductive ecology of a secondary deciduous tropical forest in venezuela
TLDR
The breeding systems, reproductive efficacies, and densities of selected trees, shrubs, vines, and hemiparasites of a secondary decduous mid-elevation tropical forest in Venezuela are investigated to test whether intra-specific population density affects inter-individual pollinator movement and hence seed set under obligate outbreeding.
