Spatial scale and dispersion pattern of ant- and bird-dispersed herbs in two tropical lowland rain forests

Abstract

The population level correlates of contrasting dispersal syndromes in closely related species are largely unknown. A family of tropical understory herbs, the Marantaceae, provides the opportunity for comparative studies as it contains many species with contrasting dispersal syndromes. As part of a study of the comparative population biology of ant- and bird… (More)
