Article
Nectar is an important floral resource, often representing the only source of water for pollinators in arid environments. We investigated whether successive nectar removal would affect the nectar production dynamics of four Melocactus species growing in the Caatinga domain. Nectar was serially extracted from flowers four times per day at regular 60...

A total of twenty-one taxa of Cactaceae, including hybrids, are newly recognised or reevaluated for the area defined for the Cacti of Eastern Brazil, some being described for the first time. Other taxonomic changes are noted together with various range extensions and many of the plants concerned are illustrated.
Article
The dramatic threats to the population at the locus classicus of Micranthocereus polyanthus (EN) is reported and all surviving mature individuals counted. The urgent need for the secure preservation of its habitat at Brejinho das Ametistas, Bahia, Brazil is emphasised.
Article
During floral biology studies in Northeastern Brazil, populations of Harpochilus from central-southern Bahia have been found to differ from H. neesianus. Following extensive fieldwork and floral visitor observations, studies of all available specimens, coupled with micromorphology of indumentum and pollen, we have gathered sufficient evidence to re...
Article
Pollinator-friendly plants are often a necessary component of the management of urban ecosystem that aim to reduce the impact of the artificial urban matrix on natural pollinator populations. Nectarivorous bats are neglected components of the urban pollinator community and there is a paucity of assessments on pollinator-friendly plants that may pro...
Article
Pereskia bahiensis subsp. minensis subsp. nov. is described from agreste vegetation in the South-eastern Brazilian state of Minas Gerais. The new taxon differs from P. bahiensis subsp. bahiensis by its flowers, with more numerous, rounded bracts, the conspicuously white base of the petals, the stamens densely clustered at the centre of the flowers,...
Article
Perfume flowers (sensu Vogel) produce intense scents that function both as attractants and as the sole rewards for pollinators. The scent is collected exclusively by male euglossine bees and used during pre-mating behavior. Perfume flowers have evolved independently in 15 angiosperm families, with over 1,000 reported species across the Neotropical...
Article
'Big Bang' flowering is common among geophyte plants and is a strategy particularly important in arid areas. Griffinia is a genus whose species have very ephemeral flowering. Not surprisingly, there is so far no information on the reproductive biology and pollination ecology of any Griffinia species. Here, we highlight an amazing phenomenon of mass...

Pollen dispersal in tropical seed plants is established mainly by biotic vectors, both in intact and fragmented environments. In urban landscapes, the segregation of natural remnants by an artificial matrix can reduce pollinator foraging efficiency. It is unknown how nectarivorous bats, regarded as long-distance pollen dispersers, respond to such h...

A dispersão polínica é o principal mecanismo promotor de fluxo gênico em Angiospermas e sua intensidade e distribuição são reguladas pela estrutura espaço-temporal da população. A sincronia de floração, especificamente, tem efeito sobre o fluxo espacial de pólen por influenciar o comportamento de forrageamento de polinizadores e a disponibilidade d...
