Seed dispersal and frugivory : ecology, evolution, and conservation
Historical and theoretical aspects of frugivory and seed dispersal plant strategies animal strategies conseqences of seed dispersal conservation perspectives. (Part contents).
Have frugivores influenced the evolution of fruit traits in New Zealand
Fruit-eating animals tend to consume many species of fruit and, likewise, the fruits of plants tend to be consumed by a wide range of animals, so it is not surprising that frugivore characteristics rarely appear to influence the evolution of fruit traits. Expand
A meta-analysis of the effect of gut treatment on seed germination.
In this review, Traveset analysed the results of studies on nearly 200 plant species in 68 families, using a slight variation of the ‘vote-counting’ method, which changes the capacity of germination and/or the speed at which seeds germinate. Expand

The role of fruit traits in determining fruit removal in East Mediterranean ecosystems.
Three hypotheses are tested that account for withinand among-species variation in fruit removal, that different factors operate in different habitats and that complex multilevel interactions make it difficult to distinguish general patterns. Expand
Mechanistic models for tree seed dispersal by wind in dense forests and open landscapes.
Seed dispersal is the main process linking spatial patterns of parent plants and their descendants (Harper, 1977; Schupp and Fuentes, 1995; Nathan and Muller-Landau, 2000). To examine theExpand
Mast seeding and predator-mediated indirect interactions in a forest community: Evidence from post-dispersal fate of rodent-generated caches.
When and how do seeds die? For most temperate trees the answer is soon after seed fall and as a result of seed predation. In temperate deciduous woodland a considerable proportion of seeds isExpand
