Supplementary Material

An excel data file of trait values for the 464 species used in this study. The data is listed by Family, Genus and Species. Genome size (GS) is listed as the 1C content in Megabasepairs. Pollen width is in Micrometers (um). The source of genome size information was the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew plant DNA C-values database [18]. The source of pollen width measurements is given in the “souce” column of the data table.
