Habitat loss shapes the structure and species roles in tropical plant-frugivore networks

Fernando César Gonçalves Bonfim, Pavel Dodonov, & Eliana Cazetta
Habitat loss is a global threat to biodiversity with pervasive effects on species and populations. These impacts may generate cascading effects on ecological processes propagating across ecological networks. Thus, understanding how habitat loss affects ecological networks is fundamental for conservation. We used a database of 25 plant-frugivore networks distributed across the whole Brazilian Atlantic Forest to understand how landscape-scale habitat loss shapes network structure, robustness, species role and traits related to seed dispersal. We compared...
