Data from: A sensory bias overrides learned preferences of bumblebees for honest signals in Mimulus guttatus

Ariela Haber, James Sims, Mark Mescher, Consuelo De Moraes & David Carr
Insect pollinators readily learn olfactory cues, and this is expected to select for “honest signals” that provide reliable information about floral rewards. However, plants might alternatively produce signals that exploit pollinators’ sensory biases, thereby relaxing selection for signal honesty. We examined the innate and learned preferences of Bombus impatiens for Mimulus guttatus floral scent phenotypes corresponding to different levels of pollen rewards in the presence and absence of the innately attractive floral volatile compound β-trans-bergamotene....
