Abstract: Widely distributed organisms face different ecological scenarios throughout their range, which can potentially lead to micro-evolutionary differentiation at specific localities. Mating systems of animal pollinated plants are supposed to evolve in response to the availability of local pollinators, with consequent changes in flower morphology. We tested the relationship among pollination , mating system, and flower morphology over a large spatial scale in Brazilian savannas using the tree Curatella americana (Di… Show more

“…In conclusion, our results indicate that historical instability in climate has favored autogamy, while pollinators are currently modulating the level of cross‐pollination. Although the direct impact of historical climate on pollinator communities should be examined in future studies, this association of historical climate instability to autogamy suggests a reproductive assurance strategy that may have benefitted the species during unstable conditions in the past (Rech et al., 2018). This strategy could be a key factor explaining why C .…”

“…Assim como outras espécies da família Annonaceae, X. aromatica é uma espécie alogâmica, protogínica e apresenta alto grau de autoincompatibilidade genética, de acordo com estudos desenvolvidos em área de Cerrado na região sudeste do Brasil (Costa et al, 1992). No entanto, o sistema reprodutivo de uma espécie pode variar dentro do alcance de sua distribuição geográfica devido à necessidade de equilibrar as garantias promovidas pela variabilidade genética, oriunda da polinização cruzada, e a segurança reprodutiva, promovida pela autopolinização, fatores que variam em resposta à diferentes condições espaço-temporais (Rech et al, 2018;Opedal et al, 2016). Isto justifica a importância de estudar a mesma espécie, em diferentes áreas e épocas, mesmo que já exista algum conhecimento prévio acerca de suas estratégias reprodutivas.…”
