An exotic Asian plant has moved in on Europe's river-banks by bribing pollinators. 
Plant–pollinator interactions and threats to pollination : perspectives from the flower to the landscape
The Royal Society and the National Research Foundation of South Africa generously funded the workshop under the SA-UK Scientific Seminars Initiative.
Combined effects of Impatiens glandulifera invasion and landscape structure on native plant pollination
TLDR
It is concluded that both, plant invasions and landscape structure have important effects on the plant–pollinator community studied, but that they operate at different stages of the flowering season.
Pollinator floral provisioning by a plant invader: quantifying beneficial effects of detrimental species
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the invasive thistle is both highly visited and strongly preferred by bees relative to other flowering species, and the invasion of this non-native species may also provide crucial benefits via floral resources for pollinators.
The tolerance of island plant–pollinator networks to alien plants
TLDR
Investigation of plant–pollinator networks from the island of Mahe, Seychelles, found patterns were primarily driven by shifts in interactions of the most commonpollinator, the introduced honey bee Apis mellifera, while weak interactions and strong nativeinteractions remainedunchanged.
Reproductive biology of Australian acacias: important mediator of invasiveness?
TLDR
Invasive species respond quicker to disturbance than non-invasive taxa and are more commonly able to resprout, although only time to reproductive maturity was significant when phylogenetic relationships were controlled for.
Pollinators, Enemies, Drought, and the Evolution of Reproductive Traits in Primula farinosa
In this thesis, I combined comparative and experimental approaches to examine selection on reproductive traits and population differentiation in the insect-pollinated, self-incompatible, perennial ...
The integration of alien plants in mutualistic plant–hummingbird networks across the Americas: the importance of species traits and insularity
TLDR
Once incorporated into plant-hummingbird networks, alien plants appear strongly integrated and, thus, may have a large influence on network dynamics, and short-billed hummingbirds facilitate the integration of alien plants.
CONSEQUENCES OF THE PHYSICAL MANAGEMENT OF AN INVASIVE ALIEN PLANT FOR RIPARIAN PLANT SPECIES RICHNESS AND DIVERSITY
TLDR
Assessment of the effectiveness of two mechanical control measures and their impacts on community plant species richness and diversity within the riparian zone of the urban river Brent, London, England was assessed.
Companion planting to attract pollinators increases the yield and quality of strawberry fruit in gardens and allotments
TLDR
Companion planting is a traditional practice thought to increase yield of insect pollinated crops by planting a co‐flowering species next to the crop by increasing the number of insects pollinating the crop.

Zur Bedeutung der invasiven Kreuzblütler-Art Bunias orientalis (Brassicaceae) als Nektarquelle für mitteleuropäische Insekten
The Turkish warty cabbage (or Russian old man) Bunias orientalis (Linnaeus 1753) is an extremely succcesful invasive plant species, which has firmly established itself in many central European
Garden Flowers: Insect Visits and the Floral Reward of Horticulturally-modified Variants
TLDR
In most cases the horticultural modifications affected the numbers or species composition of the assemblage of insect visitors, and they generally reduced the value of the floral reward to insects, often affecting accessibility.
The Mechanism of Competition for Pollination between Two Forest Herbs
TLDR
These plant species exhibit little or no competition through pollinator preference, and in some natural populations, however, visits to S. pubera are frequently immediately preceded by a visit to C. virginica, and a flower receives less conspecific pollen and produces fewer seeds following such an interspecific visit.
Native or Exotic? Double or Single? Evaluating Plants for Pollinator-friendly Gardens.
TLDR
In all British species studied, the corolla was deep enough for the relatively long-tongued bumblebee Bombus pascuorum, but the shallower flowers of Lythrum salicaria were also much visited by shorter-tonga bees and hoverflies, as well as by butterflies.
Flowers, Nectar and Insect Visits: Evaluating British Plant Species for Pollinator-friendly Gardens
TLDR
Differences between plant species in the composition of the assemblage of insect visitors, and in the magnitude and temporal distribution of the nectar reward are revealed, and interesting correlations between temperature and secretion rates or patterns of insect visits are found.
Competition for Hummingbird Pollination and Sequential Flowering in Two Colorado Wildflowers
TLDR
Fecundity reductions in natural and synthetic mixtures of D. nelsoni and I. aggregata indicate that the 2 species compete for hummingbird pollination and suggest that the competitive interaction involves interspecific pollen transfer.
Handbook of experimental pollination biology
TLDR
A book handbook of experimental pollination biology, which is so usual with the printed books, but many people sometimes have no space to bring the book for them, so they can't read the book wherever they want.
