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.
Foraging Patterns and Resource Utilization in Seven Species of Bats in a Seasonal Tropical Forest
TLDR
Competition for fruits was more important than competition for nectar and pollen in determining species diversity in this bat community, and a combination of the timing of plant—reproductive behavior and bat foraging characteristics promotes long—distance outcrossing and seed dispersal.
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.
