Abstract [en]

Urbanization causes large environmental changes that can impact the organisms living within urban environments. Plants and pollinators can be found along the gradient from urban to rural areas and their mutual dependence may make them vulnerable to urbanization. By examining plant traits of Chamerion angustifolium in Västerås, Sweden, I found that generally plants did not differ in floral or size traits as well as fitness along the urban gradient. Pollen limitation occured in Västerås but it was not influenced by the urban gradient suggesting that urbanization did not disrupt the plant-pollinator interaction. My result shows that C. angustifolium plants and their reproduction were not different along the urban gradient suggesting these plants tolerate the urban environment created by human.
