Abstract

Examines the role of style lengths in the interaction between the common monoecious Ficus pertusa species and its pollinator Pegoscapus silvestrii (Agaonidae). The author first predicts seed and wasp production from measurements of fig styles and wasp ovipositors, then compares predicted and actual numbers produced. Several other, as yet untested, factors that may limit pollinator fecundity as suggested. The study was conducted in Monteverde, Puntarenas Province, Costa Rica. -from Author
