[Abstract of a paper read at the Ecological Society Conference, 1983.]
The phenological behaviour of 29 woody species was studied over a two year period at Pureora. Of the species studied, 21 were insect or bird pollinated, and eight, including all the podocarps, were wind pollinated. Most species flowered in early or mid-summer, but several flowered in late autumn, winter or early spring.
