AbstractEvaluates the pollination efficiency of four insects (Apis mellifera, Bombus terrestris, Megachile rotundata and Calliphora spp.) in pollination three Helianthus species, including H. debilis. Insect species were more efficient pollinators than hand pollination. In H. debilis, there was no difference in the efficiency of the pollinators tested.
