Bees and nectar-yielding flowering plants in the coastal region and in the Atlantic rain forest of Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil), with a study of the long-tongued bees and tristylous water hyacinths


, : Bees and nectar-yielding flowering plants in the coastal region and in the Atlantic rain forest of Rio Grande do Sul (Brazil), with a study of the long-tongued bees and tristylous water hyacinths. Bienen und melittophile Blutenpflanzen in der Kustenregion und im Atlantischen Regenwald von Rio Grande do Sul Brasilien, mit einer Fallstudie zu Langzungenbienen und tristylen Wasserhyazinthen: ix + 150 pp.

A total of 292 bee species and 250 plant species were identified in the 2 areas. Species from the Anthophoridae and Halictidae families were the most common. Five species of Ancyloscelis (Melitomini, Anthophoridae) were studied in detail. They have long tongues and specialize in collecting pollens from certain plants.

Long-tubed hawkmoth-pollinated species present some of the most remarkable examples of floral specialization depending exclusively on long-tongued hawkmoths for sexual reproduction. Nonetheless, long-tongued hawkmoths do not rely exclusively on sp...
