Data from: Competition, seed dispersal, and hunting: what drives germination and seedling survival in an Afrotropical forest?

Ola Olsson, Gabriela Nuñez-Iturri, Henrik G. Smith, Ulf Ottosson & Edu O. Effiom
Disentangling the contributions of different processes that influence plant recruitment, such as competition and seed dispersal, is important given the increased human-mediated changes in tropical forest ecosystems. Previous studies have shown that seedling communities in an Afro-tropical rainforest in Southeastern Nigeria are strongly affected by the loss of important seed dispersing primates, including Cross River gorillas (Gorilla gorilla diehli), chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes elioti), and drill (Mandrillus leucophaeus). Here we study how germination and survival of...

Data from: Magnolia mercedesiarum (subsect. Talauma, Magnoliaceae): a new Andean species from northern Ecuador, with insights into its potential distribution

J. Antonio Vazquez-Garcia, David A. Neill, Viacheslav Shalisko, Frank Arroyo & R. Efren Merino-Santi
Magnolia mercedesiarum, a new species from the eastern slopes of the Andes in northern Ecuador, is described and illustrated, and a key to Ecuadorian Magnolia (subsect. Talauma) is provided. This species differs from M. vargasiana in having broadly elliptic leaves obtuse at the base vs. suborbicular and subcordate to cordate at the base, glabrous stipular scar, more numerous lateral veins per side and fewer stamens. It also differs from M. llanganatensis in having leaf blades...
