The madeiran lizard flower connection observed in a natural habitat


, : The madeiran lizard flower connection observed in a natural habitat. Botaniska Notiser 131(1): 159-160

On Madeira, lizards (Lacerta muralis dugesii) not only visit the flowers of introduced species, growing in front of man-made stone walls, but also those of the endemic species Muschia aurea (Campanulaceae), which grow on dry, sunny, natural rockfaces. This observation may indicate a possible ecologic background to the origin of lizard-flower connections on this island. [The lizards fed on nectar.].
