        This study shows that Myiarchus flycatchers are the most efficient seed dispersers of B. longipes across all successional stages. This suggests a close mutualistic relationship derived from adaptive processes and local specializations throughout the distribution of both taxa, as supported by the geographic mosaic theory of by: 1.   This study shows that Myiarchus flycatchers are the most efficient seed dispersers of B. longipes across all successional stages. This suggests a close mutualistic relationship derived from adaptive processes and local specializations throughout the distribution of both taxa, as supported by the geographic mosaic theory of coevolution.

      An attractive small flycatcher that looks like several other attractive small flycatchers in the genus Empidonax, the Pacific-slope Flycatcher breeds in forests and mountains along the West Coast. It’s a soft greenish brown bird with a bold eyering and two white wingbars, complemented by a bright yellow wash below. The closely related Cordilleran Flycatcher lives in similar habitats in. The Brown-crested Flycatcher (Myiarchus tyrannulus) occurs from the southwestern United States all the way south to northern Argentina. It is one of the "look-alike" species of the genus Myiarchus and practice is needed to separate it from other similar members of its genus. These birds pictured in the top two photos shown here were carrying food to nestlings in a hollow .

      Bursera longipes. The genus Bursera is a distinctive component of TDF in Mesoamerica and is composed of ca. species (De-Nova et al., ).Its distribution spans from northern Mexico to the northern region of South America (Becerra et al., ).The diversification of this genus is related to the southward expansion of TDF in response to the elevation of the Sierra Madre del Cited by: 1. Unlike great-crested flycatchers, ash-throated flycatchers forage closer to the ground in open habitats and often perch on twigs and low branches. These birds may be found at a variety of elevations, but are commonly seen from sea level to about 2, meters.
