Floral traits driving reproductive isolation of two co-flowering taxa that share vertebrate pollinators

Joel A. Queiroz, Zelma G. M. Quirino and Isabel C. Machado.

in AoB PLANTS

P ublished online November 2015 .

Journal Article. Subjects: Ecology and Conservation; Plant Evolution; Plant Sciences and Forestry; Plant Reproduction and Propagation. 7990 words.
