8], Shows that in the herbivores the most generalist species is the mallard which has a very varied diet depending on the localities, among the ducks of surface, the Mallard can be granivore as on a also to see it in our study and of This confirms our results.
Although further research is needed to test whether the increased heterogeneity in seed survival observed results in heterogeneity in seedling recruitment, previous experimental manipulation of granivore activity has been linked to significant changes in plant community composition (Brown et al.

Technological characteristics of farms are also approached through dummy variables, in equation [3], indicating that a farm operates the corresponding type of farming when these variables equal one, and zero otherwise: EXTENSIVE for farms with predominantly field extensive crops, PERMANENT for predominantly permanent crops, PIGPOULTRY for predominantly granivore (pigs and poultry) production, and DAIRYDRYSTOCK for dairy and drystock production, while mixed type of farming is the default category.
Rather than make a fruitless comparison of food plants, it is perhaps preferable to simply categorize the vole as a herbivore and the field mouse as a granivore.
For example, there are now no species of macaw, which may have depressed not only the species richness but also the biomass of the arboreal granivore guild.
We grouped species into three main (dry season) diet states: granivore (ground finches, Geospiza), insectivore (tree finches Camarhynchus and warbler finch Certhidea olivacea), and folivore (the vegetarian finch Platyspiza crassirostris).

seed tissue quality) in affecting granivore preference would be useful for providing mechanisms capable of producing the strong species-specific differences we observed.
