...Geoffrey T. Broadhead; Robert A. Raguso ABSTRACT The nearly ubiquitous presence of amino acids in the nectar of flowering plants has led to significant interest in the relevance of these compounds to pollinator behavior and physiology. A number of flower-visiting animals exhibit behavioral...

... that olfaction plays only a minor role (if any) in our results. The restriction of bumblebee landing angles in wind observed here may have important consequences for the ecomechanics of pollination. Floral orientation is highly variable in nature, and past studies have shown that some orientations (e.g...

...Erin Jo Tiedeken; Jane C. Stout; Philip C. Stevenson; Geraldine A. Wright Bees visit flowers to collect nectar and pollen that contain nutrients and simultaneously facilitate plant sexual reproduction. Paradoxically, nectar produced to attract pollinators often contains deterrent or toxic plant...

...Joaquín Goyret SUMMARY A crucial stage in the interaction between pollinators and plants is the moment of physical contact between them, known as flower inspection, or handling. Floral guides – conspicuous colour markings, or structural features of flower corollas – have been shown to be important...
