Ramirez & Brito
This study was conducted in the central plains of Guarico State,
Venezuela. Field observations were made in the years 1983, 1984 and
1989. This paper characterizes the floral biology and pollination
spectrum of the "morichal" community, and tests whether pollination
systems and unspecialized pollen transpotation are in accord with the
high proportion of self-compatibility found in the "morichal." (The
"morichal" is a tropical swamp community dominated by Mauritia
The authors recorded the identities
of flower visitor and plant species and their interactions. Data are
presented as a binary interaction matrix, in which cells with a "1"
indicate an interaction between a pair of species, and a "0" indicates
