This week Therese Lamperty’s paper titled “Ecological drivers of intraspecific variation in seed dispersal services of a common neotropical palm” was accepted in the journal Biotropica! Her paper investigates the factors that may influence frugivore diversity and fruit removal at the level of individual plants. Her results suggest that seed dispersal services can be sensitive to fine-scale variation in habitat structure. Therese completed this work while she was a PhD student at Rice University and collected these data in the Chocó forest in Ecuador. Congrats Therese, and we look forward to reading it once it’s published!
