This paper examined the feeding preferences of frugivorous birds in
relation to the seasonality, abundance, growth forms, and
nutritive/energetic value of fruit occuring in Wytham woods, near
Oxford, South Britain.
The authors recorded their data by
counting the number of visits of each bird species to each plant
species. Data are presented as an interaction frequency matrix, in
which cells with positive integers indicate the frequency of
interaction between a pair of species, and cells with zeros indicate no
