The plot thickens: does low density affect visitation and reproductive success in a perennial herb, and are these effects altered in the presence of a co-flowering species?

Abstract

Evaluates the effects of density and distance on pollination of two co-flowering plants, Coreopsis leavenworthii and Piriqueta caroliniana. Although P. caroliniana and C. leavenworthii share pollinators, the co-flowering species did not affect visitation, pollen receipt or reproductive effort in P. caroliniana. This may be because pollinators moved infrequently between species in this experiment.
