Closely related tree species support distinct communities of seed-associated fungi in a lowland tropical forest

Paul-Camilo Zalamea, Carolina Sarmiento, Elizabeth Arnold, Adam Davis, Astrid Ferrer & James Dalling
Previous theoretical work has highlighted the potential for natural enemies to mediate the coexistence of species with similar life-histories via density-dependent effects on survivorship. For plant pathogens to play this role, they must differ in their ability to infect or induce disease in different host plant species. In tropical forests characterized by high diversity, these effects must extend to phylogenetically closely related species pairs. Mortality at the seed and seedling stage strongly influences the abundance...
