Data from: Foraging impacts of Asian megafauna on tropical rainforest structure and biodiversity

John Terborgh, Lisa C. Davenport, Lisa Ong & Ahimsa Campos-Arceiz
Megaherbivores are known to influence the structure, composition, and diversity of vegetation. In Central Africa, forest elephants act as ecological filters by breaking tree saplings and stripping them of foliage. Much less is known about impacts of megafauna on Southeast Asian rain forests. Here, we ask whether herbivory by Asian megafauna has impacts analogous to those of African forest elephants. To answer this, we studied forest (1) structure, (2) composition, (3) diversity, and (4) tree...
