Ramirez & Brito (1992)

General information

This study was conducted in the central plains of Guarico State, Venezuela. Field observations were made in the years 1983, 1984 and 1989. This paper characterizes the floral biology and pollination spectrum of the "morichal" community, and tests whether pollination systems and unspecialized pollen transpotation are in accord with the high proportion of self-compatibility found in the "morichal." (The "morichal" is a tropical swamp community dominated by Mauritia flexuosa.)

Data type

The authors recorded the identities of flower visitor 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.
