Pollination Biology of Piperaceae Species in Southeastern Brazil
Annals of Botany, 2000. V. 85. No. 4. P. 455–460 (6).
Phenology, floral biology and breeding system are described for 14 Piperaceae species at two sites covered by semi-deciduous forest in southeastern Brazil. Flowering occurred continuously throughout the year, with a peak during the windy months. All species had minute odorous and nectarless flowers visited by insects; five of them showed a substantial degree of self-compatibility, and one was andromonoecious. Seven species were wind pollinated, and three were exclusively pollinated by insects. Flower visitors were mainly hoverflies and bees. Copyright 2000 Annals of Botany Company
