- ... Volatile compounds often mediate plant–pollinator interactions, and may promote specialization in plant–pollinator relationships, notably through private channels of unusual compounds. Nevertheless, the existence of private channels, i.e. the potential for exclusive communication via unique signals and receptors, is still debated in the literature. Interactions between figs and their pollinating w ...

- ... Why different colour morphs have evolved in flowering plants, and how they are maintained in populations, have long intrigued ecologists. The impact of variation in floral colour and odour (the two are frequently associated) on reproductive success remains poorly understood. In European rewardless orchids, many species occasionally show rare white-flowered individuals within populations of the com ...
