We examined the effects of seed mass on performance between the time of seed dispersal and emergence within seven sympatric rain forest woody species of Psy- chotria in two contrasting natural habitats: gaps and shaded forest. We determined the effects of seed mass on emergence (the total proportion of emerged seedlings) and on the speed of emergence (the time necessary to reach 50% total emerged seedlings) in both greenhouse and field conditions, and we observed the effects of seed mass on the… CONTINUE READING
