Variation in Cestrum parqui floral phenotype. Are pollinators driving an intraspecific differentiation?

Project summary:

The main goal of this study is to elucidate whether differential phenotypic selection exerted by two pollinator guilds (i.e. hawkmoths and hummingbirds) shapes divergent flower traits in two ecotypes of Cestrum parqui. In addition, the possible effect of phenotypic plasticity on shaping the different ecotypes will be evaluated.
