Partitioning the relative contribution of one-phase and two-phase seed dispersal when evaluating seed dispersal effectiveness
Seed dispersal effectiveness (SDE) is a conceptual framework that aims at quantifying the contribution of seed dispersal vectors to plant fitness. While it is well recognized that diplochorous dispersal systems, characterized ...
Bias-corrected estimators for dispersion models with dispersion covariates
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2011)
In this paper we discuss bias-corrected estimators for the regression and the dispersion parameters in an extended class of dispersion models (Jorgensen, 1997b). This class extends the regular dispersion models by letting ...
Long-term consistency in spatial patterns of primate seed dispersal
Seed dispersal is a key ecological process in tropical forests, with effects on various levels ranging from plant reproductive success to the carbon storage potential of tropical rainforests. On a local and landscape scale, ...
Advances and Frontiers in Primate Seed Dispersal
Primates play important roles as seed dispersers in many tropical ecosystems, such that studies of their seed dispersal services and impacts have gained interests among primatologists and ecologists in the past few decades. ...
Frugivory and seed dispersal by tapirs: an insight on their ecological role
Tapirs are one of the last extant megafauna species that survived the Pleistocene extinctions. Given their size and digestive system characteristics, tapirs might be the last potential seed disperser of plant species that ...
