Effects of canopy cover on fruiting intensity and fruit removal of a tropical invasive weed

Yukti V. Taneja, Navendu V. Page, R. Suresh Kumar & Rohit Naniwadekar
Lantana camara (hereafter, Lantana) is among the worst invasive alien plants spread extensively across Africa, Australia and Asia at an alarming rate, posing significant challenges to conservation of native biodiversity. While, Lantana invasion is widely recognised to be more pronounced in open-canopy habitats (including deciduous forests, forest edges and gaps), the potential role of variation in seed dispersal across habitats varying in overstory canopy cover is poorly understood. Avian frugivores are among primary seed dispersers...
