The various parameters included in the study are Determination of flower life time and dynamics, Collection and identification of flower visitors, Observations on the behaviour of the foragers, Determination of forager mobility and duration of flower visits, Assessment of temporal depletion and deposition of pollen under flower –visitors activity at inflorescence level. The trees of Delonix regia bloomed after leaf shedding. It flowers during March – September. The period of blooming extended… Expand

BUTTERFLY POLLINATION OF CAESALPINIA PULCHERRIMA, WITH OBSERVATIONS ON A PSYCHOPHILOUS SYNDROME
TLDR
Butterflies are the primary pollinators of Caesalpinia pulcherrima and the pollen is carried primarily on their wings, and members of Papilionidae are the most important pollinators. Expand
The size of individual Delphinium flowers and the opportunity for geitonogamous pollination
TLDR
The results suggest that large flowers reduce the incidence of geitonogamous pollination without reducing the frequency of probes per flower. Expand
Cost and benefits of attractive floral traits in the annual species Madia sativa (Asteraceae)
TLDR
Results suggest that the maintenance of within-population variation in the number of ray florets in M. sativa is explained, at least in part, by the balance between costs and benefits associated with this floral trait. Expand
Pollinator–mediated selection on flower–tube length in a hawkmoth–pollinated Gladiolus (Iridaceae)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that selection may occur among plants with natural phenotypic variation in flower‐tube length, and supports Darwin's model of pollinator‐mediated selection. Expand
Pollinator‐mediated selection on floral traits and size of floral display in Cyclopogon elatus, a sweat bee‐pollinated orchid
TLDR
Pollinator-mediated selection on traits associated with mechanical fit and attraction of pollinators were investigated through both sexual functions in Cyclopogon elatus (Sw.) Schlechter (Orchidaceae) and detected stabilizing selection on display size. Expand
Pollen Transport and Deposition by Bumble Bees in Erythronium: Influences of Floral Nectar and Bee Grooming
TLDR
The transport of pollen from donor flowers by bumble bees was measured by examining deposition on stigmata of sequences of recipient flowers, and pollen carryover in E. grandiflorum was similar in carryover, but Linaria vulgaris showed much higher carryover. Expand
Nectar reward and advertisement in hummingbird-pollinated Silene virginica (Caryophyllaceae).
TLDR
An association between primary and secondary floral attractants and hummingbird discrimination of floral features supports the concept that the floral traits of S. virginica reflect pollinator-mediated selection by the principal pollinator. Expand
Floral Traits and Plant Adaptation to Insect Pollinators: A Devil’s Advocate Approach
TLDR
Darwin’s book on orchids evoked a major revolution in botany and gave rise to an enormous literature on pollination ecology, and marked the starting point for a tradition in the practice of pollination biology. Expand
The influence of Mimulus ringens floral display size on pollinator visitation patterns
TLDR
The three most abundant pollinator species differed significantly in behaviours that could influence plant mating patterns, including number of flowers probed per plant; interplant movement distances; and grooming. Expand
Insects as Flower Visitors and Pollinators
TLDR
This review concentrates on the entomologically relevant literature published since 1967 onination ecology, and has attempted to cover concepts, related disciplines, and insect taxa by reference to publica­ tions through which the reader may delve deeper. Expand
