The variation of four floral characters (resin‐gland area, gland‐stigma distance, gland‐anther distance, and anther‐stigma distance) was analyzed across 15 populations of Dalechampia scandens occurring sympatrically, in various combinations, with five other congeners. Univariate and multivariate analysis of variance and a posteriori comparison tests indicate that there are significant statistical patterns of character divergence away from sympatric congeners for three of the floral characters… Expand
MULTILEVEL ANALYSIS OF MORPHOMETRIC DATA FROM NATURAL PLANT POPULATIONS: INSIGHTS INTO ONTOGENETIC, GENETIC, AND SELECTIVE CORRELATIONS IN DALECHAMPIA SCANDENS
  • W. Armbruster

I examined patterns of covariation of three morphometric blossom characters [gland area (GA), gland–stigma distance (GSD), and bract length (BL)] within genets, among genets, and among populations ofExpand
The Variability of Organs Differentially Involved in Pollination, and Correlations of Traits in Genisteae (Leguminosae: Papilionoideae)
TLDR
Results of this study may help understand how pleiotropic effects limit the evolutionary modification of some flower traits more than others in diverse plant groups. Expand
The adaptedness of the floral phenotype in a relict endemic, hawkmoth‐pollinated violet. 2. Patterns of variation among disjunct populations
TLDR
Marked population differences in quantitative floral traits in spite of spatial constancy in the identity of pollinators, a disintegrated floral phenotype, and prevailingly random geographic variation among populations, suggest low adaptedness of the floral phenotype of V. cazorlensir to its current hawkmoth pollinators. Expand
Does the Platanthera dilatata (Orchidaceae) complex contain cryptic species or continuously variable populations?
TLDR
Preserving the current intraspecific taxonomy of Platanthera dilatata is suggested until further studies determine the origin of floral variation and the extent of gene flow between morphologically divergent populations. Expand
The adaptedness of the floral phenotype in a relict endemic , hawkmoth-pollinated violet . 2 . Patterns of variation among disjunct populations
This study examines patterns of variation in quantitative floral traits among 18 disjunct populations of Viola cazorlensis (Violaceae), a relict endemic violet of south-eastern Spain. At all sites,Expand
Character displacement in style length between pollinator-sharing Clerodendrum trichotomum and C. izuinsulare (Verbenaceae)
TLDR
Flower size, including stamen and style lengths, is larger in C. trichotomum with an overlap in range, which seems to facilitate avoidance of interspecific pollen transfer in the sympatric population. Expand
The Evolution of Floral Form: Insights from an Alpine Wildflower, Polemonium viscosum (Polemoniaceae)
TLDR
To truly understand the process of floral evolution as it proceeds, the authors must turn their attention to the natural populations that comprise the arena for pollinator-mediated selection and gene flow. Expand
Floral traits and mating systems in sister species of Nicotiana: interpopulational variability and sympatry effects
TLDR
Corolla length was significantly negatively correlated with an increase in the percentage of self-seeds estimated by pollination treatments, and anther–stigma distance showed a positive correlation with selfing within N. longiflora, but not among N. plumbaginifolia populations. Expand
Despite their apparent integration, spur length but not perianth size affects reproductive success in the moth-pollinated orchid Platanthera bifolia
TLDR
The evolution of floral traits in the moth-pollinated orchid Platanthera bifolia is examined to suggest that pollinator-mediated selection can shape the evolution of intraspecific floral variation. Expand
Development of microsatellite markers for the neotropical vine Dalechampia scandens (Euphorbiaceae)1
TLDR
Microsatellite markers developed to assess polymorphism and level of genetic diversity in four Mexican populations of the neotropical vine Dalechampia scandens may be useful for studying genetic structure, parentage analysis, mapping, phylogeography, and cross-amplification in other closely related species of Dalechampsia.

Reproductive Character Displacement and Floral Diversity in Solanum Section Androceras
TLDR
It is surprising that there have been relatively few r-eports of character displacement in plants, and taxonomists observing variation patterns possibly attributable to character displacement would do a service by calling attention to them. Expand
Pollination of Two Species of Dalechampia (Euphoriaceae) in Mexico by Euglossine Bees
TLDR
This study reports for the first time pollination by euglossine bees of two sympatric species of Dalechampia, a large genus of Euphorbiaceae with more than 100 species of primarily American distribution and further elucidates a unique mode of pollinator attraction by resin production which has been reported from only one other plant genus.

VARIATION AND COVARIATION OF CHARACTERS OF ALATE PEMPHIGUS POPULI‐TRANSVERSUS IN EASTERN NORTH AMERICA ,
TLDR
There are real differences between interlocality and intergall factor patterns in the aphid genus Pemphigus, based on a study of the variation and covariation of 18 morphological characters from 23 localities in eastern North America. Expand
Evolution in closely adjacent plant populations IV. Barriers to gene flow
TLDR
Since no evidence has been presented for the origin of breeding barriers under disruptive selection in natural populations, the occurrence of mechanisms reducing gene flow were investigated in closely adjacent plant populations at metal mine boundaries. Expand
THE MORPHOLOGY AND RELATIONSHIPS OF DALECHAMPIA SCANDENS (EUPHORBIACEAE)
TLDR
The similarity of the Dalechampia inflorescence to the cyathium of the Euphorbieae appears to be entirely superficial, and both reproductive and vegetative data suggest that Dalechampsia is related to taxa of tribe Plukenetieae. Expand
NATURAL SELECTION FOR REPRODUCTIVE ISOLATION IN PHLOX
TLDR
The term "Wallace effect" has been applied to shifts in population structure whose primary adaptations are to strengthen reproductive isolating barriers and could permit the two species more efficiently to exploit their habitats. Expand
The Selective Origin of Incompatibility Barriers in the Plant Genus Gilia
  • V. Grant
  • Biology
  • The American Naturalist
  • 1966
TLDR
The inverse correlation between interspecific geographical and crossing relationships provides critical evidence in the case of the Leafy-stemmed Gilias, and supporting evidence for the hypothesis of a selective origin of hybridization-preventing mechanisms in annual plants under conditions of sympatry. Expand
Corolla Color as an Inhibitor of Interspecific Hybridization in Phlox
TLDR
It is concluded that character displacement in P. pilosa served to reduce hybridization and the potential for gene flow by accentuating species' floral differences, thereby aiding pollinators to discriminate between them and maintain their flower constancy. Expand
Plant‐Pollinator Interactions in Hawaii: Pollination Energetics of Metrosideros Collina (Myrtaceae)
TLDR
Fruit—set was much higher in red—flowered individuals when birds were allowed to use inflorescences than when only insects used them, apparently caused by partial self—incompatibility, such that maximal fruit—set occurs only with outbreeding, the primary agents of which are the birds. Expand
