Pollination in sago (Metroxylon sagu)

, : Pollination in sago (Metroxylon sagu). Berita Biologi 3(5): 229-231

Inflorescence morphology, flowering biology and insect visitors to sago palm (Metroxylon sagu) were observed in Pandeglang, West Java. Although the plant is monoecious and self-pollinated, insect visitors appear to play an important role in fruit-setting; the number of fruits from isolated inflorescences was smaller than the number from inflorescences open to insect visitors.
