Tropical Climates?

Rants and raves, mostly.

Tropical Climates?

Postby Missouri76 » Mon Dec 05, 2011 5:03 am

Why are flowers in tropical climates so brightly colored?
I know all flowers are brightly colored, but I`ve noticed the ones in tropical climates are hot pink and bright orange and yellow, why??

Also, I know I already asked this but the last one didn`t get any answers.

Hi Missouri76,

To my knowledge, we don't have any practising botanists, ecologists or evolutionary biologists lurking in this forum. You may have to seek these answers elsewhere.

I suppose they have to be bright to attract insects or something :) that's kind of an evolutionary thing, they assimilate and adapt their colors to the environment. That's just what I think though, I'm not a scientist.
