Data from: Shades of red: bird-pollinated flowers target the specific colour discrimination abilities of avian vision

Mani Shrestha, Adrian G. Dyer, Skye Boyd-Gerny, Bob B. M. Wong & Martin Burd
Colour signals are a major cue in putative pollination syndromes. There is evidence that the reflectance spectra of many flowers target the distinctive visual discrimination abilities of hymenopteran insects, but far less is known about bird-pollinated flowers. Birds are hypothesized to exert different selective pressures on floral colour compared with hymenopterans because of differences in their visual systems. We measured the floral reflectance spectra of 206 Australian angiosperm species whose floral visitors are known from...
