Can remnant frugivore species effectively disperse tree seeds in secondary tropical rain forests?
|Abstract||Seed dispersal by frugivores in tropical rain forests is important for maintaining viable tree populations. Over the years, vertebrae assemblages in tropical forests have been altered by anthropogenic disturbances, leading to concerns about the ability of remnant vertebrates to substitute for the lost or declining vertebrate populations. We compared vertebrate composition and frugivore visitation rates as an indirect measure of rate of seed dispe ... [truncated at 450 characters in length]|
