A cross‐continental comparison of assemblages of seed‐ and fruit‐feeding insects in tropical rain forests: Faunal composition and rates of attack

Abstract:
Aim Insects feeding on seeds and fruits represent interesting study systems, potentially able to lower the fitness of their host plants. In addition to true seed eaters, a suite of insects feed on the fleshy parts of fruits. We examined the likelihood of community convergence in whole insect assemblages attacking seeds/fruits in three tropical rainforests. Location Three ForestGEO permanent forest plots within different biogeographical regions: Barro Colorad... Expand abstract
