Hawkmoths and the geographic patterns of floral variation in Aquilegia caerulea.
The results for the Aquilegia caerulea data of figure 1 are given in table 1.
The blue columbine, Aquilegia caerulea, is a perennial herb with relatively large, protandrous flowers pollinated primarily by nectar-foraging hawk moths and pollen-foraging bumble bees (Miller 1978, 1981).
Although inbreeding depression is expected to be small in populations of self-compatible, regularly inbreeding species such as Aquilegia caerulea (Lande and Schemske 1985; Mitchell-Olds and Rutledge 1986; but see Charlesworth and Charlesworth 1987), it is commonly found in such populations (Kohn and Barrett 1991; Johnston 1992; Agren and Schemske 1993).
