Arroyo et al. (1982)

General information

This study took place at three different altitudinal levels in the Andean (alpine) zone on the Cordon del Crepo in central Chile. This paper reports the results of a community-oriented study on pollination mechanisms in the high temperate Andes and discusses how pollination mechanisms vary with altitude.

Data type

The authors recorded the identities of insect and plant species and their interactions. Data are presented as a binary interaction matrix, in which cells with a "1" indicate an interaction between a pair of species, and a "0" indicates no interaction.
