Experimental field test of spatial variation in rodent predation of nuts relative to distance and seed density

Abstract

The spatial context in which seed predation occurs may modify the spatial structure of recruitment generated by seed dispersal. The Janzen–Connell (J-C) model predicts that granivores will exert greater pressure on the parent plant or at those sites where the density of dispersed seeds is higher. We have investigated how the probability of post-dispersal… (More)
