Alocasia macrorrhiza and birds in Australia
By Dorothy E. Shaw, A. Hiller and Katherine A. Hiller     (Buy)


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.
