Data from: Allometric scaling of seed retention time in seed dispersers and its application to estimation of seed dispersal potentials of theropod dinosaurs

Tetsuro Yoshikawa, Kazuto Kawakami & Takashi Masaki
Seed retention time (SRT), the time interval between seed ingestion and defaecation, is a critical parameter that determines the spatial pattern of seed dispersal created by an animal, and is therefore, an essential component of trait-based modelling of seed dispersal functions. However, no simple predictive model of SRT for any given animal exists. We explored the linkage between animal traits and SRT. We collected previously published data on mean SRT for 112 species of birds,...
