Supplemental Information

Complete inflorescence visitation data from the experiment on the role of inflorescence height and the height of the surrounding vegetation in Centaurea scabiosa and Inula salicina

The number of inflorescence visits on individual plants in experimental transects surrounded by short or tall vegetation is shown for each flower visitor species or group.

DOI: 10.7287/peerj.preprints.3471v2/supp-1

Total visitation of inflorescences of Salvia verticillata depending on inflorescence height

Total number of visitors arriving in each inflorescence during one recording period of approximately 30 minutes is provided for three ramets per plant differing in inflorescence height. Total number of flower visits during the recording period is also provided because most visitors probed multiple flowers per inflorescence visit.

Records of individual visits of inflorescences of Salvia verticillata

Identity of a flower visitor and the number of flowers probed is provided for each inflorescence visit on individual plants. Three ramets per plant were observed and can be distinguished by different inflorescence height.

DOI: 10.7287/peerj.preprints.3471v2/supp-3

Seed set in individual ramets of Salvia verticillata in relation to inflorescence height

The number of flowers and the number of developed seeds was counted in individual whorls in inflorescences of each Salvia verticillata plant. Three ramets differing in inflorescence height were used in each plant. Inflorescences were composed of the main stem and usually 1-2 side branches; which were counted separately.
