Pollen exchange as a function of species proximity in Phlox
Author(s): D. A. Levin
Article Topic(s): Phenology, Pollination
Research Setting(s): Forest
Species Referenced: Phlox divaricata (Wild blue phlox),
AbstractDetermines the effect of proximity on pollen exchange between Phlox divaricata and P. bifida in Indiana. Both species are pollinated by lepidopterans. Pollen exchange between the species is minimal and continues to decline nearly exponentially as the distance between populations increases.
