Recent studies have shown that dense yeast populations often occurring in floral nectar are numerically dominated by a few species from the flower-insect interface specialized genus Metschnikowia, while generalist yeast species commonly occurring on leaf surfaces, soil, freshwater, and air were rarely isolated from nectar samples. This study was designed to understand the main factors responsible for the assembly of nectar yeast communities, by combining field experiments with laboratory tests… CONTINUE READING
