There has been an expansion of interest, in recent years, in the nature of plant/ pollinator interactions, especially with respect to competition. Many studies lack generality, however, for two reasons:- (i) they were completed without knowledge of precise flowering phenologies and (ii) they were short-term studies, usually completed within one flowering season. When dealing with perennials, subject ti» temporal variation in factors that influence their reproductive success, studies should be carried out over a number of flowering seasons.
