In this study, we report the observation of potential seed dispersers of the endemic to Mexico and narrowly distributed Ceratozamia norstogii (Zamiaceae). Camera traps were installed in front of two plants of Ceratozamia norstogii and cone phenology until their maturity and disintegration was determined. The female cone of Ceratozamia norstogii has...

Significant differences (tukey pairwise comparisons, P< 0.05, Tables 2, 3) in number of visits and time for interaction were found between the three species (Fig. 6). Accordingly, the mouse can be considered here as the most effective potential seed disperser of Ceratozamia norstogii Summary of the GLM result using the time during the visit as a response variable and the species as predictors. p values < 0.001 ***, p < 0.01 ** , and p < 0.05 * Figure ...

... in the removal of Ceratozamia norstogii seeds with the cone at ground level is a novel finding. Southern spotted skunk species and the kinkajou are not recognized as important seed dispersers ( Willson 1993). However, our results show that the southern spotted skunk can become an occasional, important, seed disperser of Ceratozamia norstogii (Fig. 6, Tables 2, 3). The southern spotted skunk has a longer home range than the mouse, thus increasing the chance that seeds will move a greater distance ( Lesmeister et al. 2009). All cone visitors recorded here are nocturnal animals, and the removal and dispersal of Ceratozamia norstogii seeds occur at night. Nocturnal seed dispersal has ...
