“…Ecological isolation also favors the appearance of opportunistic animal species that exploit nectar as a novel food resource (hereafter ''opportunistic nectar-feeding species''). In oceanic islands, such species form small pollinator assemblages often with highly contrasted life modes (e.g., the disparate physiologies, cognitive and locomotion systems of birds and lizards; Olesen andValido 2003, 2004;Sazima et al 2009). The weaker nectar dependence of these opportunistic pollinators should lead, a priori, to reduced QNC and QLC, and increased effectiveness variance, compared to assemblages of more specialized nectarivores.…”

“…Erythrina and Mucuna are pollinated by vertebrates (Sazima & Sazima 1978; Bruneau 1997; Galetto et al. 2000; Agostini & Sazima 2006; Sazima et al. 2009) and have pollen without protein as a major reserve substance (present data).…”

“…Considering that birds and bats do not utilise pollen of Erythrina and Mucuna as a resource, but use nectar (Sazima & Sazima 1978; Agostini & Sazima 2006; Sazima et al. 2009), the character of pollen reserves does not seem to be submitted to pollinator pressure, but expresses the physiological demands of the pollen–pistil interaction.…”
