Megafruit and megafauna diversity are positively associated, while megafruit traits are related to abiotic factors, in Tropical AsiaKim McConkey, Ahimsa Campos-Arceiz, Richard Corlett, Sushma H. S., Lisa Ong & Jedediah Brodie
Aim For tens of millions of years, herbivorous megafauna were abundant across the globe, fulfilling important ecological roles including seed dispersal. Megafruits are very large fruits that are dispersed most effectively by megafauna. However, megafruits also occur in ecosystems where megafauna are extinct or were never present, emphasizing our incomplete understanding of megafauna-megafruit relationships. Here we use the complex biogeography of tropical Asia to investigate how megafruit diversity and traits are associated with the diversity...
