This study took place on Melville
Island, N.W.T., Canada from July 19 to July 31 1965. While collecting
plants the authors made some observations on the occurence and behavior
of flower visiting insects as well as on the scent and other target
characteristics of flowers.
The 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
