Transcript of The Importance of Handling Time in Community Networks

Handling Time Body Size Handling Skills Proboscis Length Nectar Content Floral Complexity Nectar Tube Depth The length of time taken for an insect to extract rewards from a flower. Body size reflects energy needs.

We expect insect to forage faster if they are bigger. Range of nectar tubes

Deeper tubes exclude more visitor species Handling Time Search Time Visitation Rate Abundance Interaction frequency Methods Interaction Strength
Total effect of animal mutualist on reproductive success or seed dispersal of a plant 11 Plant species
28 Insect species
208 Insect individuals
132 Hymenoptera
76 Diptera
Almost 2000 interactions Acknowledgements
