    • ...One reason for this is that researchers infer the mode of seed dispersal (e.g., wind dispersal, frugivory) from the morphology of the fruit mesocarp and associated tissues (e.g., membranous wings, Xeshy fruit pulp) and have failed to appreciate the possibility of subsequent seed movement (Willson and Traveset 2000)...

    • ...Chokecherry is a typical frugivore-dispersal plant (Jordano 1995, 2000; Tamboia et al. 1996; Willson and Traveset 2000; Herrera 2002; Almeida-Neto et al. 2008)...

    • ...Wild ungulates can disperse plant diaspores by ingesting fruits or seeds in one place and rejecting them several kilometres away, with a possibly enhanced capacity for germination (Willson and Traveset 2000)...

    • ...The relationship between the amount of regeneration and the distance to the nearest cone bearing individual strongly followed the negative exponential dispersal kernel that has been proposed by a number of authors (Willson 1992; Borchert et al. 2003; Greene et al. 2004)...

    • ...During early dune development, some degree of intra-specific aggregation is expected since plant recruitment is centred around the initial colonisers due to a nucleation effect and the tendency for seed dispersal to be greatest in near vicinity of maternal plants (Willson and Traveset 2000)...
