Resource Type: journal article
Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/84754
Description: We compiled data from seed rain studies at 33 sites from around the world to determine whether the greater mean seed mass of tropical plants is associated with production of fewer seeds per square met ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/103407
Description: 1 The trade-off between seed mass and the number of seeds a plant can make for a given amount of energy underpins our understanding of seed ecology. However, there is little information on the magnitu ... More

Identifier: http://hdl.handle.net/1959.14/103158
Description: Aim  We set out to test the hypothesis that rates of pre- and post-dispersal seed predation would be higher towards the tropics, across a broad range of species from around the world. We also aimed to ... More
