We determined the fruit predators and seed dispersers of two species of durian (Durio, Bombacaceae), D. graveolens and D. zibethinus, which have contrasting aril color and timing of dehiscence by observing fruiting trees in Deramakot forest reserve. In our observations in the wild, both species were extensively predated by orangutans before fruits matured. Durio graveolens was dispersed by black hornbills and D. zibethinus was dispersed by long‐tailed macaques. 
Callosciurus prevostii (Rodentia: Sciuridae)
Abstract: Prevost's squirrel, Callosciurus prevostii (Desmarest, 1822), is a diurnal, medium-sized, arboreal squirrel. Its distribution extends from peninsular Thailand and Sumatra to northern
The Asian elephant is amongst the top three frugivores of two tree species with easily edible fruit
TLDR
In a disturbed tropical moist forest in India, data provide unprecedented support for an old notion: megaherbivores may be key dispersers for a broad set of mammal-dispersed fruiting species, and not just fruit inaccessible to smaller frugivores.
Aggregated seed dispersal by wreathed hornbills at a roost site in a moist evergreen forest of Thailand
TLDR
The quality of hornbill dispersal to this roosting site may be poor due to the highly concentrated seedfall, which results in high seed and seedling mortality and probably serve as agents of seed dispersal in the moist evergreen forest of Khao Yai.
Frugivore assemblage of Ficus superba in a warm-temperate forest in Yakushima, Japan
TLDR
Birds showed the opposite pattern: they increased F. superba syconia consumption when the temperature was low and fruit availability was high, probably because birds eat insects as their main food in the summer and switch to fruit as autumn turns to winter.
Seed Dispersal by Primates in Asian Habitats: From Species, to Communities, to Conservation

TLDR
This review shows how initial studies focused on the role of individual species in seed dispersal have expanded more recently to consider their role in the wider frugivore community.
Studying the quantity component of seed dispersal effectiveness from exclosure treatments and camera trapping
TLDR
The quality of estimation of the quantity component of seed dispersal is remarkably better when the camera trapping method is applied, and additional information obtained, such as activity patterns of visitors, can contribute to a better understanding of the seed disperseal process.
Macaques as Seed Dispersal Agents in Asian Forests: A Review
TLDR
Present knowledge of the traits that define the role of macaques as seed dispersers are reviewed, including the degree of frugivory, fruit/seed handling methods, seed dispersal distance, microhabitats of dispersed seeds, and effects of dispersal on seed germination vary seasonally and interannually.

TLDR
To insure the natural seed dispersal process in the Forest, an evaluation of all frugivore groups in the forest is urgently needed in Southeast Asia.

TLDR
Comparison of the behavioural repertoire of the Sumatran orang utan with that of the (gregarious) chimpanzee shows that the two species are closely related.
Systematics and character evolution in Durio s. lat. (Malvaceae/Helicteroideae/Durioneae or Bombacaceae-Durioneae)
TLDR
Reconstruction of floral evolution is consistent with the hypothesis that vertebrate pollination is ancestral for Durio s.lat.
Orangutan diet, range, and activity at Tanjung Puting, Central Borneo

TLDR
Orangutan solitariness is the result of a large body size and of a predominantly frugivorous and opportunistic diet, and contact with other orangutans usually increased a focal orangutan’s day length, day range, and amount of time spent moving.

TLDR
This study is the first to demonstrate the application of foraging theory to separate out the key variables that determine diet selection in a primate by integrating spatial, morphometric, and chemical variables in analysis.
