Irises Nectar and Pollination

The following is a request for assistance in research on the evolution of iris flower traits received from Dr. Yuval Sapir.

Dear Iris lovers,

Thank you for the willingness to help.

We are currently trying to reconstruct the evolution of flower traits among all irises and therefore, we would like to use the huge knowledge gained in the American Iris Society and Aril Society International, to complete information we are missing. We have a few questions regarding irises nectar and mating system:

1. Does this species have nectar?
2. Is self-pollination possible in this species?

3. What are pollinators/flower visitors?

The list of species with missing data is shown below. We are interested in data for any iris species (but not arilbreds or other hybrids).
Please send your response to Dr. Katarzyna Roguz, kaska.roguz@gmail.com

Or to Dr. Yuval Sapir, sapiryuval@gmail.com
