Because of the low availability of insects other than thrips as potential pollinators in arctic environments, early botanists of the twentieth century proposed that thrips pollination would be important in many plants, especially those of the Ericaceae family. However, this was an object of controversy that continues today. In this article, we combined experimental evidence and a broad regional survey to analyze the role of thrips in flower pollination of the Ericaceae Arctostaphyllos uva‐ursi… Expand
INUTE POLLINATORS : T HE ROLE OF THRIPS ( T HYSANOPTERA ) AS POLLINATORS OF POINTLEAF MANZANITA , A RCTOSTAPHYLOS PUNGENS ( E RICACEAE )
The feeding habits of thrips on plant tissue, and their ability to transmit viral diseases to their host plants, have usually placed these insects in the general category of pests. However, theExpand
Contribution of thrips to seed production in Habenaria radiata, an orchid morphologically adapted to hawkmoths
TLDR
It is suggested that secondary pollination by thrips may be more common than previously recognized in orchids with granular pollinia, and provides evidence that thrips can contribute to seed production in a long-spurred orchid that is morphologically adapted to lepidopteran visitors. Expand
Breeding System and Pollination of Thermopsis divaricarpa (Fabaceae: Papilionoideae) in the Southern Rocky Mountains
Abstract. Thermopsis divaricarpa (Fabaceae) is a common wildflower in the montane zone of the Colorado Rocky Mountains, but its reproductive ecology is still largely unknown. Montane meadows areExpand
Neither insects nor wind: ambophily in dioecious Chamaedorea palms (Arecaceae)
TLDR
The empirical findings clearly suggest that pollination of dioecious Chamaedorea palms is likely to involve both insects and wind, and proposes a higher diversity of pollination mechanisms of Neotropical dIOecious species than previously suggested. Expand
Variation in Pollination Systems of Australian Subtropical Rainforests: The Implications for Climate Change
TLDR
A global comparison of morphological characteristics demonstrated that there was no “typical” rainforest flower morphology, and the predominance of small white flowers, seasonal flowering and the strong influence of El Nino on flowering patterns among this subtropical rainforest flora was demonstrated. Expand
Thrips (Thysanoptera, Insecta) of the Asteraceae family plants occurring in areas with different levels of anthropopressure in Lublin (Eastern Poland) / Wciornastki (Thysanoptera, Insecta) zebrane z miejsc o różnym stopniu antropopresji w Lublinie na roślinach z rodziny Asteraceae
TLDR
The research conducted shows that urban environment is quite rich in terms of thrips species diversity, and the number of species caught indicates their tolerance to moderately adverse conditions in the city. Expand
Patterns of diversity of flower-visitor assemblages to the understory Araceae in a tropical mountain forest in Colombia
TLDR
Local strategies for the conservation of the diversity of insect flower-visitors and their interactions should be focused on the implementation of agricultural practices that reduce the use of pesticides within adjacent commercial plantations and the avoidance of illegal clearings, maintaining unbroken elevational gradients of forest, which is the only way to protect the flowering resources for anthophilous insects.

Pollinator Deception and Plant Reproductive Success inJack-In-The-Pulpit
TLDR
M Mushroom flies, especially the familie s Mycetophilidae and Sciaridae, were found to be the primary pollinators of Jack-in-the-pulpit based on pollen loads, visit rates, and an exclusion experiment. Expand
Surian (Toona sinensis (A. Juss.) M. Roem.) Flowers: Morphology,Phenology, and Insects Visitors
TLDR
Investigation of characteristics of reproduction which include 1) the characteristics of flower morphology and phenology, and 2) the identification of flower visitors of surian found in smallholder forest in Sumedang, West Java. Expand
Florivory and nectar-robbing perforations in flowers of pointleaf manzanita Arctostaphylos pungens (Ericaceae) and their effects on plant reproductive success
TLDR
Though florivory holes were highly associated with damage to reproductive parts, fruiting success did not differ significantly between flowers with the two kinds of damage, and nectar-robbing perforations were significantly correlated with reduced number of fruit that contained seemingly viable seeds.

Floral features and reproductive ecology in Thymelaea hirsuta (L.) Endl.
TLDR
Wind seems not to play a key role in the pollination process of this species in the Northern Mediterranean region, while insects might play a major role. Expand
Thrips pollination of the dioecious ant plant Macaranga hullettii (Euphorbiaceae) in Southeast Asia.
TLDR
Intraspecific pollen transfer by thrips was proved by pollen loads of thrips taken from receptive pistillate inflorescences of M. hullettii, presenting evidence for thrips pollination in the dioecious pioneer tree genus Macaranga. Expand
THRIPS‐MEDIATED SELF‐POLLINATION OF TWO FACULTATIVELY XENOGAMOUS WETLAND SPECIES
TLDR
The observations of bees collecting pollen and moving between plants suggest that cross-pollination can occur in both Ranunculus sceleratus and Potentilla rivalis, and the assumption that selfpollination is autonomous or spontaneous has dominated thinking about plants that can selfpollinate. Expand
Thrips Pollination of the Central Australian Cycad, Macrozamia macdonnellii (Cycadales)
TLDR
It is concluded that Cycadothrips albrechti is the sole pollinator of M. macdonnellii, and the possibility is considered that thrips were involved in pollen transfer before the radiation of flowering plants. Expand
Pollination in the New Guinea Endemic Antiaropsis decipiens (Moraceae) Is Mediated by a New Species of Thrips, Thrips antiaropsidis sp. nov. (Thysanoptera: Thripidae)
TLDR
It is suggested that thrips pollination may be common in the sister group to figs, and entomophily in the common ancestor of Ficus and Castilleae predated the origin of the fig pollination mutualism. Expand
The generalist pollination system and reproductive success of Calluna vulgaris
TLDR
This pollination system (generalist insect and wind) is discussed in terms of the ecological and geographical success of the species and insect-exclusion experiments demonstrated that wind pollination contributed to reproductive success. Expand
Thrips (Thysanoptera) pollination in Australian subtropical rainforests, with particular reference to pollination of Wilkiea huegeliana (Monimiaceae)
TLDR
Pollination by thrips appears more widespread in rainforest communities than has been previously recognized and appears to be the obligate pollinator also for Rapanea howittiana and R. variabilis (Myrsinaceae). Expand
An ancient pollinator of a contemporary plant (Cyclamen persicum): When pollination syndromes break down
TLDR
It is concluded that the genus Cyclamen co-evolved with large bees capable of buzz-pollination, but lost its original pollinators for unknown historical reasons and the vacant niche was then open to various unspecialized pollen consumers such as thrips, hoverflies and small solitary bees. Expand

TLDR
Thrips pollination of Castilla elastica is reported, demonstrating by a pollinator introduction experiment, an example of mutualism originating from plant-herbivore interactions and evolving into diverse pollination systems including the fig-fig wasp mutualism. Expand
