Pollinator-mediated isolation in sympatric milkweeds (Asclepias): do floral morphology and insect behavior influence species boundaries?

Author(s): S. Kephart and K. Theiss

Month: Jan
Year: 2004

Journal: New Phytologist
Volume: 161
Issue: 1
Pages: 265-277

Article Topic(s): Pollination,Genetics
Research Setting(s): Garden

Species Referenced: Asclepias incarnata (Swamp milkweed),

Abstract

Researches the role of pollination in maintaining barriers among three species of Asclepias that co-occur. A mechanical isolation between A. syriaca and the other two species was detected. More research is needed to determine barriers in species visited by generalists.
