The ecomorphologies of herbivorous dinosaurs vs. insectivores (likely, most of the small, feathered theropods, e.g., Sinosauropteryx) in the tropical rainforests and broad-leaved evergreen woodlands, can be extrapolated from ongoing processes. Much work is being done to sort out the paradigms (Kirk Johnson et al.). Thus, I would recommend:
S. R.-J. Jang, 2002. Dynamics of herbivore-plant-pollinator models. Journal of Mathematical Biology 44(2):129-149.
Dr Jang's work causes one to speculate: could the small feathered taxa have been omnivorous: fruits, flowers, insects?
