Data from: Blossom colour change after pollination provides carbon for developing seeds

Christophe Pélabon, Lauriane Hennet, Richard Strimbeck, Hansen Johnson & William Scott Armbruster
1. We tested the hypothesis that greening of the floral (involucral) bracts of Dalechampia scandens blossoms after pollination (when bracts are white) increases carbon assimilation and provides photosynthate to developing seeds. 2. We investigated the importance of the involucral bracts for the process of seed development in two ways. First, we removed or shaded bracts of hand-pollinated blossoms to prevent their photosynthesis and tested the effects of these manipulations on seed development. Secondly, we measured...
