Adaptations of the Alimentary Tracts of Some Australian Lorikeets to a Diet of Pollen and Nectar
Lorikeets, which eat mainly nectar and pollen, show a suite of adaptations to this diet not found in granivorous and frugivorous parrots. Lorikeet gizzards are much less muscular, and theirExpand

Field Metabolic Rate of a Small Marsupial Mammal, the Honey Possum (Tarsipes rostratus)
Doubly-labeled-water measurements of field metabolic rates and water influx rates in free-ranging honey possums (mean mass = 9.9 g) during late winter in Western Australia indicated that theseExpand
