Ant aggression and evolutionary stability in plant–ant and plant–pollinator mutualistic interactions
Journal of Evolutionary Biology, no. doi: 10.1111/j.1420-9101.2010.02200.x Ona, L. and Lachmann, M Mutualistic partners derive a benefit from their interaction, but this benefit can come at a cost. This is the case fo...

A network model for plant-pollinator community assembly.
Campbell C, Yang S, Albert R, Shea K. Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A. 2011 Jan 4;108(1):197-202 Community assembly models, usually constructed for food webs, are an important component of our understanding of how ecological c...

Do pollinators influence the assembly of flower colours within plant communities?
Oecologia DOI: 10.1007/s00442-010-1879-7 de Jager ML, Dreyer LL, Ellis AG. The co-occurrence of plant species within a community is influenced by local deterministic or neutral processes as well as historical regional...

Bimodal pollination system of the bromeliad Aechmea nudicaulis involving hummingbirds and bees.
Plant Biol (Stuttg). 2011 Jan;13 Suppl 1:41-50 Schmid S, Schmid VS, Zillikens A, Harter-Marques B, Steiner J. In order to compare the effectiveness of birds and insects as pollinators, we studied the floral biology of...

Pollinator-mediated natural selection in Penstemon digitalis.
Plant Signal Behav. 2010 Dec 1;5(12) Parachnowitsch A, Kessler A. Measuring the agents of natural selection is important because it allows us to understand not only which traits are expected to evolve but also why the...

Pollinator Behavior Mediates Negative Interactions between Two Congeneric Invasive Plant Species.
Am Nat. 2011 Jan;177(1):110-8. Yang S, Ferrari MJ, Shea K. Simultaneously flowering plant species may indirectly interact with each other by influencing the quantity of pollinator visitation and/or the quality of poll...

Impact of a perfluorinated organic compound PFOS on the terrestrial pollinator Bombus terrestris (Insecta, Hymenoptera).
Ecotoxicology. 2011 Jan 21 Mommaerts V, Hagenaars A, Meyer J, De Coen W, Swevers L, Mosallanejad H, Smagghe G. Perfluorinated organic chemicals like perfluorooctane sulfonic acid (PFOS) are persistent environmental po...

Temporal stability of pollinator preference in an alpine plant community and its implications for the evolution of floral traits.
Oecologia. 2011 Jan 21. Gong YB, Huang SQ. A traditional view of diverse floral traits is that they reflect differences in foraging preferences of pollinators. The role of pollinators in the evolution of floral traits...

Natural and within-farmland biodiversity enhances crop productivity.
Ecology Letters, no. doi: 10.1111/j.1461-0248.2010.01579.x Carvalheiro LG, Veldtman R, Shenkute AG, Tesfay GB, Pirk CW, Donaldson JS, Nicolson SW. Ongoing expansion of large-scale agriculture critically threatens nat...
