Author(s): D. A. Levin

Year: 1972

Journal: Evolution
Volume: 26
Issue: 2
Pages: 251-258

Article Topic(s): Phenology, Pollination
Research Setting(s): Forest

Species Referenced: Phlox divaricata (Wild blue phlox),


Determines 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.
