For one tropical tree, effective seed dispersal relies especially on elephants: Dependence on vulnerable megafauna may diminish reproductive success

Deer, bears, gibbons, but especially elephants, play an important role in seed dispersal for a large-fruited tree in the forests of Thailand, according to a new study. The data illustrate the complexity of forest ecology and hint that, at least for this one species, changes have occurred that have diminished its overall reproductive success.
