Over the years of my study, I have observed the contraction
of, and changes in, the period that Banksia ericifoia blooms
producing the nectar and pollen thet EPPs depend on:
1. Less nectar and pollen available on months where
previously there was an abundant supply.
2. Overlapping succession of nectar and pollen producing
plants that EPPs depend on is disrupted causing periods of starvation.
