Editora Nova Fronteira, Rio de Janeiro. No actual harm was observed, and one of the birds always moved away after such a dispute. Potential damage to the embryos was examined by checking the integrity of the endocarp the viability of the embryos was not examined as the fate of the propagules is beyond the scope of this study. To feed on a fruit the birds removed the epicarp ” peel” and fed on portions of the mesocarp ” pulp” , which they bit and chewed Figures 1a , b and 2b. In Southeastern Brazil, Brotogeris chiriri and B.

As the parakeets damaged no the embryo and may feed at a distance from the mother-tree, they act as primary dispersal agents. The finding of a seedling and a sapling away from any adult palm of this species seems to strengthen the dispersal role, even if occasional, of these parakeets however, any other dispersal type cannot be ruled out here.
Each palm fruit consumed on the palm tree even if partially or removed to be consumed away from it was defined as a feeding record. However, Christianini states that B.

However, the parakeets carrying the drupes to observable distances of up to 40 m from the mother-tree would qualify B. In Southeastern Brazil, Brotogeris chiriri and B. Since these parakeets feed on the external parts of the fruit only and were unable to break through the thick and aplmeiras endocarp that harbours the embryo pers. While feeding either on the palm tree or elsewhere in the understorey, the parakeets remained silent.
Three main feeding techniques were recorded: The feeding techniques I recorded for B. Upon arrival the parakeets landed on the infructescences mostly on the branchlets bases or directly on the fruits. Editora Nova Fronteira, Rio de Janeiro.
The parakeet Brotogeris tirica feeds on and disperses the fruits of the palm Syagrus romanzoffiana in Southeastern Brazil. The drupes dropped to the ground may be regarded as a form of dispersal roughly equivalent to barochory dispersal by weight only, see van der Pijl Diet and flock size of sympatric parrots in the Atlantic forest in Brazil. Acknowledgments To Marlies Sazima for her ever supporting love and help with botanical names and bibliography.
Additionally, the nostril-bill tip distance see Sick of two specimens of B.

Sometimes they spat out pieces of husk. Simbiose ave-planta, Psittacidae, Arecaceae, palmiras alimentar, periquitk. O periquito Brotogeris tirica come e dispersa os frutos da palmeira Syagrus romanzoffiana no sudeste do Brasil.
Nevertheless, parrots and their kin are primarily seed-predators, as they feed on the embryo of the fruits they forage on Collar ,Sick and thus rarely act as primary fruit dispersers. Seeds occasionally dispersed by psittacids are tiny, such as those of Ficus spp.
While perched on trees and shrubs of the understorey, the parakeets removed and ingested most of the mesocarp, dropping the partly consumed fruit. No actual harm was observed, and one of the birds always moved away after such a dispute.

A seedling and a sapling Figure 2c were found In the laboratory the greatest pslmeiras of 17 fresh drupes and the thickness of the endocarp of 12 additional ones were taken with a calliper to the next tenth of a millimetre. Sandgrouses to cuckoos J. The size of A. After a while, the partly consumed fruit was dropped and the bird came for a new one. Transport of fruits removed from the mother-tree is only mentioned en passant for B.
