[Abstract of a paper read at the Ecological Society Conference, 1983.]

First paragraph:
Regeneration of tawa is principally achieved by seed. Two aspects of seed ecology are discussed:

1. seedfall variability, both spatial and temporal ('mast' seeding);
2. seed mortality (mainly due to possum and catepillar predators).
The results are based on three seasons field work at Pureora Forest.
