Introduction Human disturbances have resulted in plant habitat fragmentation and population size decreases, which have led to small populations and have caused some plants to become endangered. In such habitats, if insect pollination is the main mating system of the plant, the reduced number of

may be particularly true in taxa with polygynous mating systems (Owens & Hartley, 1998; Lindenfors et al., 2007; Székely et al., 2007) where increases in male body mass typically enhance the chances of obtaining copulations. This has been documented in birds (bustards: Raihani et al., 2006; New world
