Predators of quail eggs, and the evidence of the remains: Implications for nest predation studies
All three groups of predators left all types of egg remains, suggesting that researchers should refrain from classifying nest predators only based on egg remains.
Artificial roosts as seed dispersal nuclei in a cerrado area in Triângulo Mineiro, Brazil = Poleiros artificiais como núcleos de dispersão de sementes em uma área de cerrado no Triângulo Mineiro,
Artificial roosts were efficient as seed dispersal nuclei and can be adopted as a method to accelerate the regeneration of degraded areas and define targeted and more efficient strategies to habitat restoration.
Avian frugivory in Miconia (Melastomataceae): contrasting fruiting times promote habitat complementarity between savanna and palm swamp
Miconia assemblage studied here seems to promote a link between two adjacent habitats in the Neotropical savanna from Central Brazil, a link which is likely to be common in this naturally patchy ecosystem.

C. brasiliense nectar may be an alternative resource to birds visitors during the dry season, and nectarivores birds visited flowers late in the morning, while other species appear earlier.
Frugivory and potential of birds as dispersers of Siparuna guianensis.
This work aims to determine the bird species that eat the fruits of S. guianensis in a semi deciduous forest fragment in Brazilian Cerrado and measure which species have the highest potential as seed dispersers.
Impact of Forpus xanthopterygius (Spix, 1824) (Aves, Psittacidae) on flowers of Handroanthus serratifolius (Vahl.) S. O. Grose (Bignoniaceae).
The behavior of F.xanthopterygius was characterized and the damage to the flowering and in the reproduction of H. serratifolius was evaluated and the size of groups was correlated to number of flowers predated and was influenced by number of Flowers offered.
Richness, composition and detectability of Psittacidae (Aves) in three palm swamps of the Cerrado sensu lato in central Brazil
La riqueza y the composicion de pstacidos en pantanos, determinar si el tamano of los grupos varia estacionalmente, y comparar las especies de acuerdo con sus tasas de detectabilidad fueron los objetivos de this estudio.
Survey of the insect population on a Protea plantation in the southwest of Portugal
During June and July of 1999, a Protea plantation was established in Zambujeira do Mar, in the Southwest of Portugal, to know the main pests causing damage to the crop and to identify the beneficials present in order to establish an IPM program for the crop in the region.
