Data from: The timing of frugivore-mediated seed dispersal effectiveness. Arroyo, Juan M. Publication date: August 16, The seed dispersal effectiveness framework allows assessing mutualistic services from frugivorous animals in terms of quantity and quality. Quantity accounts for the number of seeds dispersed and quality for the probability of recruitment of dispersed seeds.

Impact of multiple bird partners on the seed dispersal effectiveness of China’s relic trees

Frugivory and seed dispersal: ecological and evolutionary aspects pp Cite as. Disperser effectiveness is the contribution a disperser makes to the future reproduction of a plant. Although it is a key notion in studies of seed dispersal by animals, we know little about what determines the effectiveness of a disperser. The role of the present paper is to review the available information and construct a hierarchical framework for viewing the components of disperser effectiveness. Unable to display preview.

Jeffery B. Chelonian Conservation and Biology 1 December ; 9 2 : — Seed dispersal capabilities by red-eared sliders Trachemys scripta elegans and common snapping turtles Chelydra serpentina in southwestern Missouri were investigated for mulberry Morus spp. Feeding trials conducted on these seeds demonstrated that seed damage was low and percentage of germination of turtle-passed seeds did not exceed controls for any seed species tested. These turtle species are capable of dispersing mulberry, barnyardgrass, and curly dock seeds to areas near pond margins and to more distant locations during overland movements.

Quantity, quality and the effectiveness of seed dispersal by animals

Seed dispersal is a key process driving the structure, composition, and regeneration of tropical forests. Larger frugivores play a crucial role in community structuring by dispersing large seeds not dispersed by smaller frugivores. We assessed the hypothesis that brown howler monkeys Alouatta guariba clamitans provide seed dispersal services for a wide assemblage of plant species in both small and large Atlantic forest fragments. Although fruit availability often decreases in small fragments compared with large ones, we predicted that brown howlers are efficient seed dispersers in quantitative and qualitative terms in both forest types given their high dietary flexibility. Overall, they defecated ca. In most cases, the richness and abundance of seed species dispersed was similar between small and large fragments. However, groups inhabiting small fragments tended to disperse a higher diversity of seeds from rarely consumed fruits than those living in large fragments.

Frugivorous birds generally exhibit an unequal contribution to dispersal effectiveness of plant species as a function of their habitat adaptation and body size. In our study, we compared the effectiveness of multiple bird species that contribute to the dispersal of the endangered relic Chinese yew, Taxus chinensis.

Marika Hayashi, Kara L. Feilich, David J. Explosive dehiscence ballistically disperses seeds in a number of plant species. During dehiscence, mechanical energy stored in specialized tissues is transferred to the seeds to increase their kinetic and potential energies. The resulting seed dispersal patterns have been investigated in some ballistic dispersers, but the mechanical performance of a launch mechanism of this type has not been measured. The properties of the energy storage tissue and the energy transfer efficiency of the launch mechanism were quantified in Impatiens capensis.

Внутри не было никакого лирджета. Он несколько раз моргнул затуманенными глазами, надеясь, что это лишь галлюцинация. Увы, ангар был пуст. О Боже.

Сьюзан кричала и молотила руками в тщетной попытке высвободиться, а он все тащил ее, и пряжка его брючного ремня больно вдавливалась ей в спину. Хейл был необычайно силен. Когда он проволок ее по ковру, с ее ног соскочили туфли. Затем он одним движением швырнул ее на пол возле своего терминала. Сьюзан упала на спину, юбка ее задралась. Верхняя пуговица блузки расстегнулась, и в синеватом свете экрана было видно, как тяжело вздымается ее грудь.

Он набрал номер. - Escortes Belen, - ответил мужчина. И снова Беккер изложил свою проблему: - Si, si, senor. Меня зовут сеньор Ролдан.

Он окончательно протрезвел. Ноги и плечо ныли от боли. Беккер с трудом поднялся на ноги, выпрямился и заглянул в темное нутро салона.

Поднявшись на подиум, она крикнула: - Директор. На коммутатор поступает сообщение. Фонтейн тотчас повернулся к стене-экрану.

Звонки в агентства услуг сопровождения ничего не дали. Коммандер, недовольный необходимостью говорить по линии, не защищенной от прослушивания, попросил Дэвида не звонить, пока кольцо не окажется в его руках. Он решил было обратиться в полицию - может быть, у них есть данные о рыжеволосых проститутках, - но Стратмор на этот счет выразился недвусмысленно: Вы должны оставаться невидимым. Никто не должен знать о существовании кольца. Может быть, стоит побродить по Триане, кварталу развлечений, и поискать там эту рыжую девицу.
