Gleaning of fruits while airborne has also been recorded in the Square-tailed Black Bulbul Hypsipetes ganeesa in southern India Balakrishnan, Prevention and control Control methods are not appropriate for E.
Dhindsa, M. Feeding in Common Bulbul occurs intermittently throughout the day. During dry season days, they start feeding in early hours to hours but during wet season days, it starts as late as hours. Examination of Elaeidobius species showed that they become covered in pollen which is shed when they clamber about the female inflorescence.
A preliminary study on the ecology of Red Whiskered Bulbul. Wahid and Hassan reported the results of a survey covering Malaysian oil palm estates to assess the increase in rat populations since the introduction of E.
The annual cycle of the Chinese Bulbul Pycnonotus sinensis formosae in Taiwan. Ral P h, J. The intensity of food-intake gets accelerated from the awakening after the reconnection calls and then gradually slows down. Princeton Univ. Since the introduction of the pollinating weevil, E.

Present and future phenological changes in wild plants and animals. Kitowski I. Lynx Edicions. However, this bird species completely avoided feeding on insects from the order Odonata, Orthoptera, Dictyoptera and s in the oil palm ecosystem.
A mill survey revealed that the large compact bunches were difficult to process with the existing machinery, resulting in reduced extraction rates of oil. The presence of larvae appeared to attract rats. Therefore, before this age, artificial pollination is required. Flower-birds and bird-flowers in India.
Competition and the structure of bird communities. Bombay Nat. It appears that, though birds were living in suburban areas, they were still more dependent on wild plant species for food as compared to other frugivorous birds, thus causing minimal harm to human crops Dhindsa and Saini, Earle, R.
Root T, Hughes L Reports of successful establishment and enhanced yields are now being received from these countries Greathead, Studies in Avian Biology No.
In these countries, the inadequacy of pollination has been a major problem. Avian species of various groups are excellently adapted for various means of obtaining food and many of them are food specialist Wellicome et al.

Assisted pollination gives good fruit set during the months when natural pollination is poor. P Strandfield.40 UTAR AGRICULTURE SCIENCE JOURNAL VOL. 1 NO. 4. OCTOBER Journal Agriculture Science 41 Journal Agriculture Science Effectiveness of the oil palm pollinating weevil, Elaeidobius kamerunicus, in Malaysia Manual pollination of oil palm was made obsolete in the early s when.
The population of Elaeidobius kamerunicus Faust and its aggressiveness have been on a decline in Indonesia in recent years. This situation has affected the oil palm fruit set. Hatch and carry technique was developed to solve this problem. Larvae and pupae of E. kamerunicus present in post anthesis male Cited by: 1.
Studies of weevils that pollinate oil palm reveal that the species Elaeidobius kamerunicus can increase productivity thanks to its ability to carry more pollen and adapt to a new climate.
