The Influences of Disperser Behavior, Host Availability, and Environmental Conditions on the Distribution of Oak Mistletoe [Phoradendron Leucarpum (RAF.) Reveal & M. C. Johnst.] in Eastern Virginia and North Carolina

Nicholas Pearce Flanders
Mistletoes are shrubs that typically parasitize the branches of host trees and rely on avian frugivores for seed dispersal. Because mistletoes are restricted to a narrow range of suitable recruitment sites and avian frugivores are more visible than other guilds of seed dispersers, mistletoe-frugivore systems afford opportunities for assessing the roles of dispersal limitation and local environment in determining plant distribution. These mechanisms have been proposed as determinants of the observed association of oak mistletoe...
