Abstract

Evaluates the effects of display and size of male and female Sagittaria latifolia flowers on pollination. Increasing flower size resulted in increased pollinator visitation, regardless of flower sex. The number of insect visits per flower decreased with increasing floral display in males but remained constant in females. The authors conclude that larger flowers are advantageous to both males and females.
