This is a study of the interactions
between insects visitors and spring wildflowers in piedmont North
Carolina. Spring flowering, entomophilous herbs, shrubs, and understory
trees were included in the study.
The author recorded his data by counting the
number of visits of each flower visitor species to each plant species.
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 interaction.
