Studies show the percentage of fruit set appears highest with 2-day old female-stage pollen, with a higher percentage obtained with pollen collected from unopened flowersthanfromslightly opened flowers.
A steep slope (such as in bmr3 /N3) is indicative of a more rapid progress in floweringthanincases where the slope is more gradual (such as in bmr2 /N2).
Colour Vision and Niche Partition The fact that bees require more time to find red flowersthanother-coloured flowers, together with some results from optimal-foraging theory, outlined here, could unlock the mystery and explain the association between red coloration and bird pollination in flowers.
