Specific costs represent crop-specific inputs --seeds and seedlings, fertilizers, crop protection products and other specific crop costs--, livestock-specific inputs --feed for grazing stock and granivores, other specific livestock costs-- and specific forestry costs.
For example, expressions like 'Frugivores/Omnivores, Frugivores/Granivores, Frugivores/Herbivores' (Eisenberg, 1981) indicate on concealed hierarchy: Frugivores (Omnivores, Granivores, Herbivores).
Lack of Ara macaws and Psophiid screamers contributes to the observed differences in the granivore guild.
ML ancestor states are similar [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 1B OMITTED] with one exception: the common ancestor of the tree finch (Camarhynchus) and ground finch (Geospiza) clades is most likely a granivore not an insectivore (but this estimate is only weakly supported).

Experimental community ecology: the desert granivore system.
The feeding category assigned to each species was determined according to the food most often eaten and literature data: insectivores, frugivores, nectarivores, carnivores, granivores, omnivores, granivore-insectivores (mixed diet with a higher proportion of seed), insectivore-frugivores (mixed diet with a higher proportion of insects), granivore-insectivore-frugivores (mixed diet), carnivore-insectivore-frugivores (mixed diet) and carnivore-insectivores(mixed diet with a higher proportion of small vertebrates).
First, it acts as a barrier, preventing a portion of the granivore community from feeding on the nut meat.
