Small mammals reduce distance-dependence and increase seed predation risk in tropical rainforest fragments

Aparna Krishnan, Anand M Osuri & Meghna Krishnadas
Seed predation and reduced predation risk with distance from conspecific trees are important influences on tree regeneration in tropical forests. Shifts in animal communities, such as an increase in rodents and other small mammals due to forest fragmentation, could alter patterns of seed predation and affect tree regeneration and community dynamics in forest fragments. We performed a field experiment on four native rainforest tree species in the Western Ghats, India, to test whether fragmentation increases...
