Pollination in sago (Metroxylon sagu)

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