Plant-animal interactions are key processes in the maintenance of ecosystem functioning. Most tropical fleshy fruited plant species rely on animals to disperse their seeds, which in turn rely on those fruits as a food resource. Thus seed-dispersal directly influences vegetation structure and community dynamics in tropical forests. Seed dispersal efficiency is mainly affected by species...
Plant-frugivore interactions are essential for the maintenance of tropical forest, therefore a timely challenge on the conservation agenda. Habitat fragmentation and defaunation are among the main human-made disturbances affecting the persistence of these interactions. Such effects at the community level have been detected, among others, by the use of ecological networks and correspondi...
