Here, we quantify pollinator contribution to seed production by comparing fertility in the presence versus the absence of pollinators for a global dataset of 1174 plant species. We estimate that, without pollinators, a third of flowering plant species would produce no seeds and half would suffer an 80% or more reduction in fertility. Pollinator contribution to plant reproduction is higher in plants with tree growth form, multiple reproductive episodes, more specialized pollination systems, and tropical distributions, making these groups especially vulnerable to reduced service from pollinators. These results suggest that, without mitigating efforts, pollinator declines have the potential to reduce reproduction for most plant species, increasing the risk of population declines.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Ashman, Tia-Lynn</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Burd, Martin</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Burd, Martin</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Hui, Cang</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Razanajatovo, Mialy</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Knight, Tiffany M.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dc:creator>Rodger, James G.</dc:creator> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/55268"/> <dc:contributor>Bennett, Joanne M.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:rights>terms-of-use</dc:rights> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:creator>Ashman, Tia-Lynn</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Bennett, Joanne M.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Hui, Cang</dc:contributor> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/55268/3/Rodger_2-b7443bcs5kot1.pdf"/> <dc:creator>Razanajatovo, Mialy</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Arceo-Gómez, Gerardo</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Rodger, James G.</dc:contributor> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-10-18T07:03:42Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>van Kleunen, Mark</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Knight, Tiffany M.</dc:creator> <dc:creator>Arceo-Gómez, Gerardo</dc:creator> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-10-18T07:03:42Z</dcterms:available> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:contributor>van Kleunen, Mark</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Steets, Janette A.</dc:contributor> <dcterms:issued>2021</dcterms:issued> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/bitstream/123456789/55268/3/Rodger_2-b7443bcs5kot1.pdf"/> <dcterms:title>Widespread vulnerability of flowering plant seed production to pollinator declines</dcterms:title> <dc:creator>Steets, Janette A.</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
