Patterns of nectar robbing on two manzanita species

Breana Dyste, , Kenny Ruiz & Benjamin Vargas
Pollinators provide ecosystem services and facilitate plant reproduction. Plant-pollinator interactions often benefit both partners and are considered mutualisms. However, cheating can occur in these interactions when floral visitors take resources from plants without providing any benefit (Smithson 2013). One example of this kind of cheating is nectar robbing, which occurs when a pollinator collects nectar from a hole in the flower’s corolla and bypasses pollination. We compared the variation of floral nectar robbing between two...
