Dynamics of heterotrophic succession in carrion arthropod assemblages: discrete seres or a continuum of change?
SummaryPatterns of species change, computed day to day community similarity, polar ordination, and other statistics were used to discern successional trends and correspondence with named decay stages
Similarity and Apparent Convergence in the Nectar-Sugar Composition of Some Hummingbird-Pollinated Flowers
TLDR
Claims of adaptive convergence in the sugar composition of nectar in hummingbird-pollinated species are supported by high-performance liquid chromatography data from southwestern North America.
Dynamics of heterotrophic succession in carrion revisited
TLDR
Using a subset of reports from the same published data as in the analysis, Boulton and Lake (1988) applied detrended correspondence analysis and hybrid multidimensional scaling to confirm the discovery from polar ordination that clusters of days corresponding to named decay stages are rare.
PATTERNS OF FLORAL NECTAR‐SUGAR COMPOSITION OF IPOMOPSIS LONGIFLORA (POLEMONIACEAE) NEAR THE CONTACT ZONE OF ITS SUBSPECIES LONGIFLORA AND AUSTRALIS
TLDR
The data show that significant variability exists in this biochemical character, and the pattern of variation is clearly related to the geographic distribution of the populations.
