Comparative Phenological Studies of Trees in Tropical Wet and Dry Forests in the Lowlands of Costa Rica
TLDR
The results of a comparative phenological investigation of the trees in Wet and Dry forest sites in lowland Costa Rica are reported here to provide a unified analysis of the leafing, flowering, and fruiting periodicities of most species at both sites.
A new classification for plant phenology based on flowering patterns in lowland tropical rain forest trees at La Selva, Costa Rica
TLDR
A new classification and conceptual framework for plant phenology are proposed to resolve problems in describing tropical patterns and provide a logical framework for quantitative description of phenological behavior leading to more standardized comparisons.
Ecological Patterns of Bees and Their Host Ornamental Flowers in Two Northern California Cities
TLDR
Overall, many bee species seem pre-adapted to use extant urban resources for forage, reproduction and survival in residential areas of these two California cities.
COMPARATIVE PHENOLOGICAL STUDIES OF TREELET AND SHRUB SPECIES IN TROPICAL WET AND DRY FORESTS IN THE LOWLANDS OF COSTA RICA
TLDR
There were no consistent peaks of flowering for treelet and shrub species in the Wet forest, but flowering levels tended to be greatest in the first half of each year, and continuous flowering was rare among Wet forest treelets and shrubs, being characteristic of only a few species of secondary forest.
Ecology of Urban Bees: A Review of Current Knowledge and Directions for Future Study
Urban bee ecology is an emerging field that holds promise for advancing knowledge of bee community dynamics and promoting bee conservation. Published studies of bee communities in urban and suburban
A tropical hawkmoth community: Costa Rican dry forest Sphingidae
TLDR
Characteristics and interactions of hawkmoths and the plants they exploit for nectar and floral specificity are described, and some key characteristics of the moths and plants as they may relate to pollination interactions are discussed.
Reproductive biology of some Costa Rican Cordia species (Boraginaceae)
TLDR
The objective is to quantify the critical aspects of phenology, floral and pollination biology, breeding system, and seed-dispersal strategy of different Cordia species, to attempt to discern correlations between these features, to interpret their ecological importance, and to point out evolutionary shifts which appear to have taken place as well as the selective pressures which may have produced them.
Modification of a Community Garden to Attract Native Bee Pollinators in Urban San Luis Obispo, California
Gardens have become increasingly important places for growing nutritional food, for conserving biodiversity, for biological and ecological research and education, and for community gathering. Gardens
The city as a refuge for insect pollinators.
TLDR
It is argued that pollinators put high-priority and high-impact urban conservation within reach, and transforming how environmental managers view the city can improve citizen engagement and contribute to the development of more sustainable urbanization.
