Many angiosperm flowers produce substances (e.g., nectar, pollen, lipids) which serve as rewards for animals which are morphologically and behaviorally adapted to effect pollination by transferring pollen in sequential visits to flowers of the same species (Faegri and van der Pijl, 1966; Baker and Baker, 1975). It has long been realized that these floral rewards are frequently also attractive to other animal species which, due to morphology or behavior at particular flowers, do not effect… Expand
