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 ...
Seed Dispersal by Primates and Implications for the Conservation of a Biodiversity Hotspot, the Atlantic Forest of South America
Primates play a fundamental role as seed dispersers, particularly in tropical rainforests. Because defaunation and fragmentation are leading several primate species to local extinction, it is fundamental to understand the ...
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, ...
Relationship of samara size with dispersal of Gallesia integrifolia (Phytolaccacea) in a tropical dry forestRelación del tamaño de la sámara con la dispersión de Gallesia integrifolia (Phytolaccacea) en un bosque seco tropical

Dispersal of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi: Evidence and Insights for Ecological Studies
Dispersal is a critical ecological process that modulates gene flow and contributes to the maintenance of genetic and taxonomic diversity within ecosystems. Despite an increasing global understanding of the arbuscular ...
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. ...
