The dual pollination systems of Monarda bradburiana and Monarda fistulosa.

In the glades and prairies at Shaw Nature Reserve two species of Monarda (Monarda bradburiana and Monarda fistulosa) are exhibiting a dual pollination system. Daytime pollinators account for the majority of pollen flow, however, moths contribute to the reproduction of both species. Hand pollination experiments and observations were done to determine the contribution of each pollinator group to the reproductive success of both species of Monarda. Moth pollination for M. bradburiana and M. fistulosa was sufficient for full seed set. Therefore, moths are responsible for initial seed set and contribute more to the reproduction of Monarda spp. than previously thought.
