(1989) further noted that entomophily
typically results in the deposition of clumps of pollen, whereas, among the 312 pollination droplets examined in their study, none was observed to contain clumped Ephedra pollen grains.
The other plant species all demonstrated characteristics associated with other pollination syndromes, especially entomophily
While anemophily has been confirmed in several palms (Listabarth, 1992b; Luna et al., 2005; Savolainen et al., 2006), a large body of data on palm entomophily
has accumulated over the last decades (e.g.
* PS, Pollination syndrome: Orn, ornithophily; Mel, melittophily, Chi, chiropterophily; Gen, generalist; Sph, sphingophily; Ent, entomophily
. Flower per individual: mean number of open flowers per plant per day.
