    Proceedings are presented of the Second International Symposium-Workshop on Frugivores and Seed Dispersal, held in Catemaco, Veracruz, Mexico, June The 26 papers are arranged in 4 parts, each with a brief introduction: Historical and theoretical aspects of frugivory and seed dispersal (6 papers); Plant strategies (5); Frugivore strategies (7); and Consequences of seed dispersal (8). Because seed dispersal allows plant species to disperse to other areas, the loss of frugivores could change plant communities and lead to the local loss of particular plant species. Since frugivore seed dispersal is so important in the tropics, many researchers have studied the loss of frugivores and related it to changed plant population dynamics.

This book is the second major volume dealing with the fruit/seed/frugivore mutualism, which is an ecological interaction of profound importance in many habitats around the world. This mutualism is particularly well-developed in the tropics, where a majority of trees and shrubs depend on animals for their seed stichtingdoel.com: T.H.

Fleming. Jan 06,  · However, since the s they have started to gain more prominence and now give rise to more research funding, seminal papers and international symposiums. This book contains chapters adapted from the Third International Symposium-Workshop on Frugivores and Seed Dispersal held in Augustin Rio Quente, stichtingdoel.com by: Until recently, the production of fruits by plants, their consumption by animals (frugivory) and the relevance of these to seed dispersal have attracted less attention than topics such as pollination biology.

However, since the s they have started to gain more prominence and now give rise. The concept of seed dispersal quality has been central to discussions of fruit-frugivore coevolution.

Schupp thoroughly reviews data bearing on this concept, constructs a hierarchical framework for viewing disperser effectiveness, and points out that disperser effectiveness depends on both the quantity and quality of seed dispersal. "I recommend this book for lecturers of ecology, because seed dispersal and frugivory are both important and spectacular topics in which ecological principles and rules are plastically manifested, attracting the students' interest to the science of ecology".

`This book is a must for every seed dispersal ecologist, and is, therefore, higly recommended. ' S. Godschalk, South American Journal on Zoology, ` this book is a valuable source of information and methodological approaches for all students who are and will be attracted by this field of.

This book provides information on the historical and theoretical perspectives of biodiversity and ecology in tropical forests, plant and animal behaviour towards seed dispersal and plant-animal interactions within forest communities, consequences of seed dispersal.

About this book. Introduction. A wide variety of plants, ranging in size from forest floor herbs to giant canopy trees, rely on animals to disperse their seeds. Typical values of the proportion of tropical vascular plants that produce fleshy fruits and have animal-dispersed seeds range from %, depending on habitat.

A common theme that runs through Frugivores and Seed Dispersals by Herrera, Denslow et at., and Stiles and White is the importance of the 'fruiting environment' (i.

the spatial relationships of conspecific and non-conspecific fruiting plants) on rates of fruit removal and patterns of seed rain. Herrera and Denslow et at. point out that this environment is largely outside the control of individual Price Range: £ - £ However, the series of seed germination studies mentioned above suggests that frugivory may not just lead to dispersal of seeds, but also to dispersal of viable seeds Cited by: 2.
