Resumen: Measurements of nectar volume and sugar concentration along two elevational gradients, in flower exclusion experiments, and over a diurnal cycle of nectar production, were compared for invasive Lantana camara and endemic Lantana peduncularis in the Galápagos Islands during the dry season. Both species show the same pollination syndrome and are pollinated by Lepidoptera. L. camara flowers had a higher nectar volume than L. peduncularis at every elevation and higher total sugar content. However, nectar in L. peduncularis flowers was much more concentrated than in L. camara at lower elevations. The differences in nectar production between Lantana species seemed to be intrinsic and related to contrasting strategies to cope with drought. Nectar volume of unbagged flowers of L. camara was lower than bagged flowers at sunrise, which was probably related to the consumption of nectar by nocturnal Lepidoptera. Nectar removal by floral visitors had a pronounced effect on the total amount o...
