Reproductive success of a deceptive species,Orchis morio, was investigated in relation to floral display, vertical position of fruits and dispersion pattern. A caging experiment confirmed the necessity of the presence of insect vectors for fruit development. In two Czech populations studied in 1997, insect-pollinated plants had on average 27.3 and 38% fruit set, compared to 96.7% for flowers pollinated by hand. Floral display (number of flowers per spike) was expected to positively affect the… CONTINUE READING
