Food odour preference behaviour in three Australian Pteropus species (Chiroptera: Pteropodidae)
This thesis reports an investigation into the olfactory preferences of three Australian Megachiropteran species, Pteropus poliocephalus, P. scapulatus and P. alecto, for a variety of plant-derived odours. Methodologies were devised for investigating odour preference behaviour, involving equipment design, development of new applications for existing statistical techniques for the analysis of preference data, and analysis of odorous headspace in test mixtures and from flowers in the field....[Show more]
