Nectar Theft and Floral Ant-Repellence: A Link between Nectar Volume and Ant-Repellent Traits?

Journal Article
Ballantyne, G., & Willmer, P. (2012)
Nectar Theft and Floral Ant-Repellence: A Link between Nectar Volume and Ant-Repellent Traits?. PLOS ONE, 7(8), https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0043869
