Principles of Dispersal in Higher Plants
TLDR
This chapter discusses the evolution of Dispersal Organs in General, and discusses the role of dispersal strategy and the Biocoenosis in this process.
Prunus mahaleb and Birds: The High‐Efficiency Seed Dispersal System of a Temperate Fruiting Tree
TLDR
The results conflict with theoretical expectations and suggest that both the nature of the correlation between bird— and plant—related coevolutionary gradients and their amplitudes, as well as thenature of bird—plant coev evolutionary interactions, may differ between tropical and temperate habitats.
Is Fuchsia excorticata (Onagraceae) seed limited
TLDR
New Zealand native tree Fuchsia excorticata is showing evidence of seed, microsite and herbivore limitation, and complex interactions between each, which has considerable implications for one of New Zealand’s important secondary succession forest trees, as well as the honeyeating and frugivorous birds that feed on its flowers and fruit.
Resumes Diet and Reproduction of Ship Rats in the Northern Tararuas
TLDR
The importance of the ship rat as a destroyer of fallen titoki (Alectryon excelsus) and tawa (Beilschmiedia tawa) seed was determined to be important.
Diet Balancing in the Cockroach Rhyparobia madera: Does Serotonin Regulate this Behavior?
  • R. Cohen
  • Biology
    Journal of Insect Behavior
  • 2004
TLDR
The results suggest that serotonin may help alter the carbohydrate feeding response in cockroaches and suggest that nymphs of the cockroach Rhyparobia madera have the ability to diet-balance.
THE ROLE OF SEED DISPERSERS IN THE POPULATION DYNAMICS OF THE COLUMNAR CACTUS NEOBUXBAUMIA TETETZO
TLDR
The bat Leptonycteris curasoae had the highest effectiveness whereas the bird Carpodacus mexicanus had the lowest, and the dispersal effectiveness of different frugivores, considering the quantity and quality components of seed dispersal.
Mutualism or opportunism? Tree fuchsia (Fuchsia excorticata) and tree weta (Hemideina) interactions
TLDR
Observations indicate that any interaction between tree weta and F. excorticata is likely to be opportunistic rather than mutualistic, and highlight the difficulty of characterizing such interactions.
Nutrient regulation in relation to diet breadth: a comparison of Heliothis sister species and a hybrid
TLDR
Comparisons of patterns of diet selection, nutrient balancing, post-ingestive utilization and development in two sister species of caterpillar and a hybrid between them imply that different behavioural and physiological traits linked to nutrient regulation are under genetic control and are explicable in terms of the different life-histories, feeding ecologies and presumed levels of nutritional heterogeneity.
Have frugivores influenced the evolution of fruit traits in New Zealand
TLDR
Fruit-eating animals tend to consume many species of fruit and, likewise, the fruits of plants tend to be consumed by a wide range of animals, so it is not surprising that frugivore characteristics rarely appear to influence the evolution of fruit traits.
Fruit Colour in Relation to the Ecology and Habit of Coprosma (Rubiaceae) Species in New Zealand
New Zealand Coprosma species exhibit a greater colour range and a lower proportion of red coloured fruits than those of other countries where the genus occurs. Fruit colour was examined in relation
