Additionally, an exclusion criterion in which any rats differing from the mean time exploring the conspecific at training of the overall sample (irrespective of group) by more than two standard deviations was employed in order to promote uniform training exposure.
The possibility of fighting-based CTA was further explored in this study by employing a differential conditioning procedure with two taste cues: One was paired with confrontation with a conspecific, while the other was not.
Specifically, we explored whether the production of unviable seeds congregated by bats below roosting sites could enhance secondary seed dispersal, seed survival and thus seedling recruitment away from the nearest conspecific Dipteryx oleifera tree.
