study took place in the boreal
forest of central New Brunswick, Canada, from May to September of 1978,
1979, and 1980. The objective was to investigate the role of animals in
pollination and seed dispersal. The study was designed to provide basic
descriptive information on breeding systems, pollination biology, and
phenology of understory herbs.
authors recorded their data by
counting the number of individual flower visitors caught on each plant
species. The total number of individuals collected on each plant
species provide a rough estimate of the level of visitation that each
species received. Data are presented as an interaction frequency
matrix, in which cells with positive integers indicate the frequency of
interaction between a pair of species, and cells with zeros indicate no
