The spatial scale of plant-animal interactions: effects of resource availability and habitat structure
Plant–animal interactions are crucial nodes in the structure of communities and pivotal drivers of ecosystem functioning. Much of this relevance may depend on how animals cope with plant resources at… Expand
Ecology: Mistletoe seed dispersal by a marsupial
The temperate forest that extends from 35° S to 55° S along the Pacific rim of southern South America is home to an endemic and threatened flora and fauna. Many species belong to lineages that can be… Expand
The potential key seed-dispersing role of the arboreal marsupial Dromiciops gliroides
Abstract Marsupial seed dispersal is a rare phenomenon, although it may be ecologically significant in southern South America. The marsupial Dromiciops gliroides is endemic to the northern part of… Expand

Introduction and naturalization of non-native species is one of the most important threats to global biodiversity. Birds have been widely introduced worldwide, but their impacts on populations,… Expand
Population structure and phylogeography of the mistletoes Tristerix corymbosus and T. aphyllus (Loranthaceae) using chloroplast DNA sequence variation.
The mistletoe Tristerix corymbosus (Loranthaceae) is present in the temperate forest and Chilean matorral biomes of Chile and northwest Patagonia. The closely related cactus-specific species, T.… Expand
DispersiÛn de semillas por aves en un bosque templado de SudamØrica austral: ¿quiØn dispersa a quiØn?
Seed dispersal by birds in a temperate forest of southern South America: Who disperses to whom? : Many plants depend on animals for seed dispersal, a task carried out mainly by birds that ingest… Expand
Exotic Mammals Disperse Exotic Fungi That Promote Invasion by Exotic Trees
Biological invasions are often complex phenomena because many factors influence their outcome. One key aspect is how non-natives interact with the local biota. Interaction with local species may be… Expand
Seed dispersal by a frugivorous marsupial shapes the spatial scale of a mistletoe population
Summary 1. Seed dispersal is considered critical for shaping the spatial structure of plant populations, though little empirical effort has been made to interpret this effect in terms of the scale at… Expand
Phylogenetic relationships and ecological speciation in the mistletoe Tristerix (Loranthaceae): the influence of pollinators, dispersers, and hosts.
Phylogenies can provide valuable information on biotic and abiotic factors associated with speciation. We examined species relationships in Tristerix (Loranthaceae), a genus of 11 species with an… Expand
