Article Topic(s): Pollination
Research Setting(s): Wetland
Species Referenced: Iris hexagona (Dixie iris),
AbstractResearches pollination in an area where both Iris hexagona and I. fulva co-occur. In areas where I. hexagona was dominant, queen bumble bees were the most common pollinator. In areas where the red-flowerd I. fulva was dominant, hummingbirds were the most common pollinator.
