Dispersal is essential for the persistence of populations in space and time (McArthur and Wilson, 1968; Levins, 1969). Theoretical and empirical studies suggest that seed dispersal is one of the major mechanisms that build and sustain diversity in plant communities (Nathan and MullerLandau, 2000; Webb and Peart, 2001; Condit et al., 2002). In many plant communities, frugivorous animals are believed to play the major role in structuring and maintaining diversity through their seed dispersal… CONTINUE READING
