Background and aims: The twig cross-sectional area and the surface area of leaves borne on it are expected to be isometrically correlated across species (Corner's rules). However, how stable this relationship remains in time is not known. We studied the interspecific and intraspecific twig leaf area-cross-sectional area (la-cs) and other scaling r...

Background: Traditionally, animals are considered the main primary seed dispersers away from the parental plants of fleshy-fruited species. We considered whether wind could also be an important primary seed vector of fleshy fruits. Aims: This is the first study that compares seed-rain density and Seed Dispersal Effectiveness of fleshy-fruited spec...

https://hualves.wordpress.com/ ¿QUÉ SON LOS HUALVES? Los hualves, hualhues o pitrantos son bosques pantanosos, es decir, ecosistemas de humedal de agua dulce dominados por árboles, los cuales se encuentran inundados de manera estacional o permanente por el aporte de las precipitaciones, aguas subterráneas y/o por estar asociados a ríos o esteros y...

The seeds of fleshy-fruited species growing in aquatic environments fall into water, with or without their pericarp depending upon whether gravity or animals disperse the seeds, with consequences little explored for seed ecology and dispersal in wetlands. In this styudy, we evaluated the germination of seeds with and without fleshy pericarp after w...

Islands are susceptible to exotic plant invasion, and Robinson Crusoe Island (RCI), Juan Fernandez Archipelago (33°S, 78°7′W, Chile) is no exception. Through a literature review, we assessed plant invasion and compared it to other oceanic islands worldwide. Here, we discuss measures to enhance forest recovery on RCI based on knowledge accumulated f...

Although fleshy fruits are usually dispersed by animals and gravity, our research shows that the fleshy fruits of invasive plants on Robinson Crusoe Island (RC) are also moved by wind. To determine whether a bird (Turdus falcklandii), wind, and gravity could be legitimate dispersers of fleshy fruits from the invasive plant species Aristotelia chile...

In flooded habitats, inundations affect important forest regeneration processes, such as seed dispersal and germination. The main seed dispersal mechanism used by species in Austral South American temperate swamp and riparian forests is endozoochory, which releases seeds from the fleshy pericarp. Endozoochory could be favorable or unfavorable in we...

We investigated if the marsupial Dromiciops gliroides (Microbiotheriidae) is a legitimate seed disperser of Ugni molinae (Myrtaceae). We compared the germination rate of defecated and not-defecated seeds. The results show that defecated seeds are viable and show a high germination rate than no-defecated seeds. We conclude that D. gliroides is a leg...
