Digest: Experimental evolution provides a window into the evolution of generalized pollination
Articles/Book chapters

Do plants with multiple pollinators evolve unique trait combinations or intermediate phenotypes compared to plants with onepollinator? Using experimental evolution, Schiestl et al. (2018) found that plants pollinated by bumblebees and hoverflies evolvedtrait values not observed in plants pollinated by one taxon, which provides evidence for the existence of a unique generalizedpollination phenotype.
