At the scale of an individual host, mistletoes are aggregated in space, resulting from the preferential perching of mistletoe dispersers on previously infected plants. We hypothesized that the landscape scale movement patterns of mistletoe dispersers will also promote the aggregation of mistletoes. This hypothesis was tested by predicting the seed shadow for box mistletoe Amyema miquelii (Loranthaceae) and patterns of seed rain, by combining radiotelemetry data of mistletoebird Dicaeum… Expand
