The highest amount of seed predation came from mammals. Different Heliconia species have different flowering seasons. An identification key was made based on morphological and anatomical features.

Heliconias are an important food source for forest hummingbirdsespecially the hermits Phathornithinaesome of which — such as the rufous-breasted hermit Glaucis hirsuta — also use the plant for nesting. In addition, the stems of the Heliconia leaves are not heliconiadeae enough to carry the weight of typical bat predators, so shaking of the leaf alerts roosting bats to presence of predators. The bat cuts the side veins of the leaf extending from the midrib causing the leaf to fold like a tent.

It was found that hummingbird visits to the Heliconia flower did not affect its production of nectar. Almost all species of Hispini beetles that use rolled leaves are obligate herbivores of plants hsliconiaceae the order of Zingiberaleswhich includes Heliconia. Heliconia solomonensis has green inflorescences and flowers that open at night, which is typical of bat pollinated plants. Hermits are a subfamily of Phaethornithinaehelixoniaceae of the genera AnopetiaEutoxeresGlaucisPhaethornisRamphodon, and Threnetes.

International Journal of Plant Sciences. Heliconia solomonensis is pollinated by the macroglosine bat Melonycteris woodfordi in the Solomon Islands.

The flowers can be hues of reds, oranges, yellows, and greens, and are subtended by brightly colored bracts. In other projects Wikimedia Commons Wikispecies. Diversity and evolutionary biology of tropical flowers. The Honduran white bat Ectophylla alba also lives in tents it makes from heliconia leaves. The morphological and anatomical features of the inflorescence bracts were studied in H. Their flowers are produced on long, erect or drooping paniclesfamillia consist of brightly fmailia waxy bracts, with small true flowers peeping out from the bracts.

All species have bracts with uniseriate epidermis, with thin-walled cells, tetracytical stomata in H. Nordic Journal of Botany 1 6: The leaves in different positions on the plant have a different absorption potential of sunlight for photosynthesis when exposed to different degrees of sunlight.

The macroglosine bat is the only known nocturnal pollinator of Heliconia solomonensis. They are characteristically long, oblong, alternate, or growing opposite one another heljconiaceae non-woody petioles often longer than the leaf, often forming large clumps with age.

However, the APG system ofand heliconiacrae successor, the APG II system ofconfirm the Heliconiaceae as distinct and places them in the order Zingiberalesin the commelinid clade of monocots.

Views Read Edit View history. Yeliconiaceae growth habit of heliconias is similar to CannaStrelitziaand bananasto which they are related. Fruits are blue-purple when ripe and primarily bird dispersed. Most of the ca known species [3] are native to the tropical Americasbut a few are indigenous to certain islands of the western Pacific and Maluku.
