Title: The feeding ecology of the Adelaide Rosella Platycercus elegans adelaidae in cherry growing districts of the Adelaide Hills
Author: Reynolds, Timothy Mark
Issue Date: 2003
School/Discipline: School of Earth and Environmental Sciences
Abstract: The specific aims of this study were to 1) gather baseline information on diets of Adelaide rosellas around cherry orchards at different times of the year, 2) determine the importance of cherry primordia relative to other foods in the diet, and 3) investigate some of the factors that might influence food use and food choice (e.g., energy content of foods, accessibility of foods) as precursors for proposing management strategies for reducing damage to cherry buds caused by rosellas.
