Evolution of Angiosperm Pollen. 7. Nitrogen-fixing Clade
TLDR
A number of evolutionary trends for changes in pollen character states are found, including increasing grain size, increasing aperture number accompanied by concomitant changes in aperture position and aperture shape, and increasing complexity of tectum ornamentation.
Challenges in the Restoration of Quartzitic and Ironstone Rupestrian Grasslands
Actively restoring ecosystems that have “been degraded, damaged or destroyed” became imperative in face of worldwide human impacts on nature. For rupestrian grasslands which are so peculiar and

The Ecological Impact of Nectar‐Robbing Bees and Pollinating Hummingbirds on a Tropical Shrub
TLDR
The consequences of nectar robbing by highly social bees were studied at 71 patches of the forest-edge shrub, Pavonia dasypetala at two tropical moist forest habitats in central Panama, finding that robbing primarily influenced reproductive success at the level of the flower patch.
Pollination ecology of Anthyllis vulneraria subsp. vulgaris (Fabaceae): nectar robbers as pollinators.

TLDR
The results suggest that the effect of nectar robbers on plant reproductive success is dependent both on the robbers' behavior and on flower/inflorescence structure.
Pollination in Jacaranda rugosa (Bignoniaceae): euglossine pollinators, nectar robbers and low fruit set.
TLDR
Pollination and the effect of nectar robbers on the reproductive fitness of Jacaranda rugosa, an endemic shrub of the National Park of Catimbau, in the Caatinga of Pernambuco, Brazil is studied.
Relationship between floral tube length and nectar robbing in Duranta erecta L. (Verbenaceae)
TLDR
It is suggested that nectar robbing may represent an opposite selective force that balances the selection for longer corollas often imposed by pollinators specializing in visiting tubular flowers and have obvious implications for the evolution of tubular or closed flowers.
NECTAR‐ROBBING BUMBLE BEES REDUCE THE FITNESS OF IPOMOPSIS AGGREGATA (POLEMONIACEAE)
TLDR
The effects of a nectar-robbing bumble bee, Bombus occidentalis, on male and female reproductive success of Ipomopsis aggregata are measured and interactions among nectar robbers, pollinators, and their plant hosts may have important consequences for plant fitness.
Consequences of nectar robbing for the fitness of a threatened plant species
TLDR
The data obtained suggest that in this species, nectar robbing has important indirect and negative effects on plant fecundity, through both male and female functions, due to a modification in the foraging behaviour of legitimate visitors.
Selective seed abortion induced by nectar robbing in the selfing plant Comastoma pulmonarium.
TLDR
It is suggested that nectar robbing can have both negative and positive effects on the quantity and quality, respectively, of progeny produced in selfing plants, and challenge the view that robbing has no effect on selfing species.
Reproductive phenology of sympatric taxa of Chamaecrista (Leguminosae) in Serra do Cipó, Brazil
TLDR
Reproductive phenology of 13 sympatric taxa of Chamaecrista in three sections was surveyed at Serra do Cipo, south-east Brazil and five types of phenological behaviour were differentiated by cluster analyses according to the season during which each species produced most of its mature seeds.
FORAGING BEHAVIOR OF BOMBUS (HYMENOPTERA: APIDAE) IN RELATION TO AQUILEGIA POLLINATION
TLDR
Observations on native and cultivated plants indicated that the ruby-throated hummingbird and at least four species of Bombus are probably effective pollinators of Aquilegia canadensis L. in southeastern Wisconsin.
Direct and Indirect Effects of Nectar Robbing on the Pollinating Behavior of Patagona gigas (Trochilidae) 1
In central Chile, nectar robbing of Puya coerulea (Bromeliaceae) flowers by the austral blackbird, Curaeus curaeus, had a direct impact on the plant via removal of floral resources and, in some
