The potential effect of florivory on donation and deposition of pollen in Ipomoea imperati was studied. Three different levels of flowering damage (0%, 25%, and 75%) were applied to emasculated and non-emasculated flowers and the number of pollen donated and deposited was measured. It was found that there are significant differences in pollen donation and reception between flowers with 75% damage compared to the control and flowers with 25% damage. It is concluded that the florivory has a negative effect on pollen transport of Ipomoea imperati. This negative effect could be associated with a change in visiting patterns and behavior of the pollinators.
