Viability of small seeds found in feces of the Central American tapir on Barro Colorado Island, Panama.
It is suggested that small seeds, like large seeds, often pass through the digestive tract of T. bairdii intact, and potentially serve as effective dispersers of a wide range of small-seeded plant species.
Frugivory and Seed Dispersal by the Lowland Tapir Tapirus terrestris in the Peruvian Amazon
It is concluded that the lowland tapir is a potential disperser for a large number of plant species, including many that previously have been thought to be dispersed only by large primates.
Ordem Perissodactyla: conhecimento atual sobre a anta-brasileira, com ênfase no bioma Pantanal
A ordem Perissodactyla é representada por uma única espécie no Pantanal: a anta (Tapirus terrestris) – o maior mamífero terrestre brasileiro. A espécie é listada como vulnerável à extinção, tanto
The mutualism–antagonism continuum in Neotropical palm–frugivore interactions: from interaction outcomes to ecosystem dynamics
How different consumption behaviours and feeding types of vertebrate fruit consumers can influence seed dispersal and regeneration of palms, and thus ultimately affect the structure and functioning of tropical ecosystems, is demonstrated.
The Legacy of Pre–Columbian Fire on the Pine–Oak Forests of Upland Guatemala
Mountain tropical forests of the Southern Maya Area (Pacific Chiapas and Guatemala, El Salvador and Northern Honduras) predominantly comprise pine and oak formations, which form intricate mosaics and
Lowland tapirs facilitate seed dispersal in degraded Amazonian forests
This dissertation aims to provide a history of web exceptionalism from 1989 to 2002, a period chosen in order to explore its roots as well as specific cases up to and including the year in which descriptions of “Web 2.0” began to circulate.
Lowland tapir distribution and habitat loss in South America
The results demonstrate that for at least one species, the lowland tapir, the use of a simple consensual approach (average of ENFA and MAXENT models outputs) better reflected its current distribution patterns.
Diet and foraging behavior of a female Baird's tapir (Tapirus bairdi) in a Costa Rican lowland rainforest
The Baird’s tapir ( Tapirus bairdii) is an endangered neotropical species which has little field research to guide its conservation efforts and more time was spent feeding and chewing while moving and less time moving without chewing in the wet season.
