The role of spines in anthropogenic seed dispersal on the Galápagos islands

Marc Johnson, Mae Johnson, Oscar Johnson & Reagan Johnson
Dispersal has important ecological and evolutionary consequences for populations, but understanding the role of specific traits in dispersal can be difficult and requires careful experimentation. Moreover, understanding how humans alter dispersal is an important question, especially on oceanic islands where anthropogenic disturbance through species introductions can dramatically alter native ecosystems. In this study, we investigated the functional role of spines in seed dispersal of the plant caltrop (Tribulus cistoidesL., Zygophyllaceae) by anthropogenic agents. We also...
