Honeyeaters and the New Zealand forest flora: the utilisation and profitability of small flowers

Honeyeaters and the New Zealand forest flora: the utilisation and profitability of small flowers

New Zealand Journal of Ecology. October; 212: 169-179

A study was conducted on Kapiti Island on the south western coast of the North Island of New Zealand during August 1991-94, to investigate the pollination by birds of forest flowers which are morphologically ornithophilous. The forests of Kapiti Island are lowland forests and tall forests of Melicitus ramiflorus Beilschmiedia tawa-Elaeocarpus dentatus, Weinmannia racemosa-B. tawa, Corynocarpus laevigatus and Dysoxylum spectabile types.
