Estimated the magnitude of phenotypic selection in each of 3 yr on the corolla length of flowers produced by Calathea ovandensis (Marantaceae). A major focus was to determine whether variation among pollinators in pollination efficiency, coupled with the striking temporal variation observed in the pollinator community of Calathea, could promote temporal variation in the direction and magnitude of phenotypic selection. -from Authors
