Poulin et al. (1999)

General information

The information on plant phenology and frugivore diet used in this study was taken from two independent studies carried out at Barro Colorado Island (9°9'N, 79°51'W) and Soberania National Park (9° 10'N, 79° 7'W) in Central Panama. Both sites have a tropical monsoon climate and support a semideciduous tropical forest with a mature canopy height of 35 m. The abundance and diet of dispersal agents were studied to investigate both the timing of fruit maturation and the patterns of seed dispersal.

Data type

The data indicates the number of fruits taken by the bird species mist-netted at the national park.
