  • PlantEdDL - A close-up view of Aloe vryheidensis flowers with dark-colored nectar visible.
    of Aloe vryheidensis contains phenolic compounds that give it its dark brown color and a bitter taste The main effect of the phenolics appears to be to repel certain nectarivores with a bitter taste and attract others with its coloring The birds that are the most effective pollinators for this species do not seem to be affected by the bitter taste and are attracted to flowers with dark nectar This photograph originally appeared on the cover of Ecology 87 11 in November of 2006 Format jpeg Primary or BEN resource type Photograph Discipline Specific Core Concepts Ecological Core Concepts Interspecific interactions Mutualism symbiosis and commensalism Ecological Core Concepts Interspecific interactions Ecological Core Concepts Individuals Physiology Ecological Core Concepts Individuals Life science discipline subject Ecology Keywords pollination mutualism bird flower nectar distaste aversion attraction color phenolic bitter taste Key taxa Aloe vryheidensis Audience Undergraduate upper division 15 16 Undergraduate lower division 13 14 Intended End User Role Teacher Language English Educational Language English Pedagogical Use Description This photograph can be used to illustrate flower parts nectar pollination mutualisms or as a starting point to discuss different coadaptations between flowers and pollinators Primary Author Controlled Name Steven Johnson Primary Author Affiliation School
