The outstanding invasive ability of gorse is strongly related to its large and persistent seed bank. A study of gorse seed predation in England (Hill 1982) suggested that the seasonal abundance of Cydia succedana larvae in gorse pods peaked 3 weeks later than that of Exapion ulicis and the frequency of co-occurrence in pods was low. It was predicted from this study that the introduction of C. succedana to New Zealand in 1992 would not significantly displace E. ulicis, and that the combined seed… Expand
