  1. For each species in each protocol, the number of individual flowers sampled (n) and the breakdown of measurements taken at each measurement location are given. measurement location ‘Repro struc’ indicating reproductive structures. Where total number of individuals and number of measurements at a location differ, this indicates a measurement is missing due to camera saving error. An n value of ‘–’ indicates that the species was not measured by that protocol
