Abstract:In previous studies it was discovered that the fruit set on blueberry blossoms which were not exposed to pollinators until they were several days old was significantly lower than the set on open-pollinated fresh blossoms Wood and Wood 1963). Since this decrease in fruit set was greater than that which could be attributed to decline in floral receptivity alone, it was assumed that part of the reduction must be due to a change in pollinator activity. We further interpreted our results as evidence that the older blossoms were attracting fewer pollinators than fresh blossoms.
