"PeerJ Preprints" is a venue for early communication or feedback before peer review. Data may be preliminary.

Supplemental Information

Visitation of flowers of individual plant species by selected species of hoverflies, separately by males and females

DOI: 10.7287/peerj.preprints.26516v1/supp-1

Raw data on flower visitation by hoverflies

The dataset contains all observations of flower visits. Each hoverfly individual is recorded in a separate row and information about its identity, sex, sampling location, and plant species on whose flower it was collected is provided.

The complete plant-hoverfly flower visitation network

The network is shown as a matrix with hoverflies in rows and plants in columns. Number of flower visits recorded is provided for each plant-hoverfly species combination. The first column provides hoverfly species ID number and the first raw provides plant species ID number used in Fig. 1 in the main text.

Values of diet overlap for all pairs of hoverfly species

We show values of the Pianka's niche overlap index calculated from flower visitation data. Species of hoverflies with <5 records were excluded from the calculations.

DOI: 10.7287/peerj.preprints.26516v1/supp-4

A summary of plant species trait measurements

Mean value of plant height and inflorescence size, and flower colour is provided for all plant species visited by hoverflies during our study.
