  • BackgroundDifferent functional frugivores generally exhibit unequal contributions, both in terms of quantity (seed removal) and quality (seedling recruitment), to effective seed dispersal of plant species. However, variations in this dispersal pattern generated by frugivores across different regions are still unknown.MethodsIn our study, we evaluated the contributions of two functional frugivore bird groups, the bulbuls (Pycnonotidae) and crows (Corvidae), in both the seed removal and seedling… CONTINUE READING
