A comparison of morphology and breeding system of Camassia scilloides between different habitats.

The reproductive biology of a plant species can be habitat specific. This study compares the reproductive biology of Camassiascilloides, a MO native species, in glade and wetland populations. Morphological measurements, visitation pattern observation and hand pollination experiments were conducted in each habitat. Results show that glade and wetland plants significantly differ in height, flower number and stamen length. In both habitats the main pollinating visitor was Halictidae. The glade population of C. scilloides is self-compatible, not negatively impacted by geitonogamy and not experiencing pollen limitation. Our results do not indicate that variation in morphology impacts pollination services. Further studies are needed to establish possible temporal variation of the pollination in the two habitats.
