Data from: Drought, post-dispersal seed predation and the establishment of epiphytic bromeliads (Tillandsia spp.)Nahlleli Chilpa-Galván, Gerhard Zotz, Guillermo J. Sánchez-Fuente, Celene Espadas-Manrique, José Luis Andrade & Casandra Reyes-García.
Post-dispersal predation in epiphytes is poorly documented. In the course of a study on in situ germination of two Tillandsia species in a deciduous forest in Yucatan, Mexico, post-dispersal seed predation rates by the Yucatan deer mouse (Peromyscus yucatanicus) averaged 90%. Post-dispersal predation was thus more limiting than drought.
