Data from: Are pulp consumers effective seed dispersers? Tests with a large-seeded tropical relict tree

Mara Peña-Egaña, Andrea P. Loayza & Francisco A. Squeo
Several plant species in the Neotropics bear large, fleshy fruits that suggest adaptation to endozoochorous seed dispersal by large vertebrates. Many of these plants, however, occur in areas where large vertebrates are no longer present, consequently, their seeds are dispersed by pulp consumers; small vertebrates that only ingest the pulp reward because they are uncapable of swallowing the fruits whole. Few studies have examined the role of these pulp consumers on the regeneration of large-fruited/seeded...

Data from: Interspecific geographic range size–body size relationship and the diversification dynamics of Neotropical Furnariid birds

Oscar Inostroza-Michael, Cristián E. Hernández, Enrique Rodríguez-Serrano, Jorge Avaria-Llautureo & Marcelo M. Rivadeneira
Among the earliest macroecological patterns documented, is the range and body size relationship, characterized by a minimum geographic range size imposed by the species' body size. This boundary for the geographic range size increases linearly with body size and has been proposed to have implications in lineages evolution and conservation. Nevertheless, the macroevolutionary processes involved in the origin of this boundary and its consequences on lineage diversification has been poorly explored. We evaluate the macroevolutionary...
