Temeles Lab: Resource partitioning by color in a tropical hummingbird
Ethan J. Temeles, Alexandra R. Mazzotta, & April Williamson
2017 Behavioral Ecology and Sociobiology 71: 129
We present the first example of partitioning of artificial nectar sources by color in hummingbirds and argue that such partitioning may result from differences between tropical and temperate plant communities in divergence (tropical) and convergence (temperate) in floral coloration.
