Linking the hierarchical decisionmaking process of fruit choice and the phenotypic selection strength on fruit traits by birds
(Oxford University Press, 2017-08)
Aims: Animals in search of fleshy fruits forage mostly according to the number of available fruits and then select individual fruits based on reward quality or advertised subtle traits. This hierarchical pattern of fruit ...
Does attraction to frugivores or defense against pathogens shape fruit pulp composition?
Fruit traits evolve in response to an evolutionary triad between plants, seed dispersers, and antagonists that consume fruits but do not disperse seeds. The defense trade-off hypothesis predicts that the composition of ...

Temporal variation in the abundance of two species of thrushes in relation to fruiting phenology in the Atlantic rainforest
(CSIRO Publishing, 2012-01-01)
When fruit resources in tropical forests are scarce, frugivorous birds might track fruiting by expanding their home-ranges or by moving. We tested whether the abundance of the Yellow-legged Thrush (Turdus flavipes) and ...

Fenologia, produção e qualidade de frutos da goiabeira ‘Paluma’ em diferentes épocas de poda
Pruning guava trees at different times is an important management tool that allows year-long staggering of fruit production. In this context, this study aimed to evaluate the phenological characteristics, yield and fruit ...

Analysis of blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum L.) fruit water dynamics during growth using an ecophysiological model
(Taylor & Francis, 2017)
Blueberry (Vaccinium corymbosum L.) fruits exhibit three growth stages associated with distinct biological processes. During these periods, water and carbon accumulate in the fruit, determining quality traits such as fruit ...
Bird fruit consumption results from the interaction between fruit-handling behaviour and fruit crop size
(Taylor & Francis, 2017-01)
Bird foraging behaviour is a major factor involved in mutualistic interactions of fleshy-fruited plants. Despite much research, we still lack quantified demonstrations of how fruit display traits affect fruit removal ...
Rehydration of Rosa rubiginosa Fruits Dried with Hot Air
(Taylor & Francis, 2015-04)
The effect of perforation, drying temperature, and rehydration temperature on the rehydration kinetics of Rosa rubiginosa fruits was investigated. Before drying, half of the fruit sample was perforated three times at ...
