Pacific Salmon in Aquatic and Terrestrial Ecosystems
S runs in the Pacific Northwest have been declining for decades, so much so that many runs are threatened or endangered; others have been completely extirpated (Nehlsen et al. 1991). This “salmon
Vertebrate Dispersal Syndromes in Some Australian and New Zealand Plant Communities, with Geographic Comparisons
TLDR
The frequency of vertebrate dispersal syndromes in a variety of Australian and New Zealand vegetation types is surveyed and the color spectra of fleshy fruits in various regions is surveyed, finding some patterns are beginning to emerge, but they represent only a starting place in understanding of variation in the frequencies of fleshed fruit species in different floras and vegetation types.
The Evolution of Fruit Color in Fleshy-Fruited Plants
TLDR
13 nonexclusive hypotheses that may contribute to the observed frequency distribution of fruit colors are presented and a preliminary assessment of these hypotheses is made, in a preliminary way, using existing information.
FISHES AND THE FOREST
TLDR
E very year, millions upon millions of anadromous fish come from the oceans to spawn in freshwater streams, and these teeming hordes of fish fall prey not only to marine hunters, such as other fish, whales, and sea lions, but also to numerous terrestrial predators and scavengers.
Avian Community Organization and Habitat Structure
TLDR
These results do not coincide with previous attempts at ecological generalization, and great care should be made of meticulously delineated subcommunities, resource measurement, and reproductive success, as well as events in the nonbreeding season.
Avian Communities of Fragmented South‐Temperate Rainforests in Chile
The diversity and relative abundance of south-temperate rainforest birds decreased as the size of the habitat patch decreased. Ecological categories, including endemics, mutualists (pollinators, seed
Flowering Ecology of Some Spring Woodland Herbs
TLDR
It is suggested that flowering in early spring is a high-risk option in terms of insect- mediated sexual reproduction and constraints on flowering phenology are discussed, including the predictability of suitable conditions.
