Data from: Flower colour and phylogeny along an altitudinal gradient in the Himalaya of Nepal

Mani Shrestha, Adrian Dyer, Prakash Bhattarai, Martin Burd & Adrian G. Dyer
1. Both the phylogenetic structure and trait composition of flowering plant communities may be expected to change with altitude. In particular, floral colours are thought to vary with altitude because Hymenoptera typically decline in importance as pollinators while Diptera and Lepidoptera become more important at higher elevations. Thus, ecological filtering among elevation zones and competitive processes among co-occurring species within zones could influence the floral chromatic cues present at low and high elevations. 2. We...
