By Dorothy E. Shaw, A. Hiller and Katherine A. Hiller     (Buy)

ABSTRACT:

Reports are given of the eating of berries of Alocasia macrorrhiza by Lewin's Honeyeater and the Regent Bowerbird in the wild in Australia; it is not known, however, whether the seed is regurgitated or voided. Aspects of ornithochory are discussed in relation to the reports.
