Seed predation by insects across a tropical forest precipitation gradient

Abstract:

1. Pre‐dispersal predation of seeds by insects can be an important source of plant mortality, with consequences for plant population dynamics and community diversity.
2. The intensity and host‐specificity of natural enemies, including seed predators, is predicted to vary systematically across environmental gradients. These trends could contribute to large‐scale patterns in diversity, such as the widely observed positive relationship between plant species richness and precipitation. Howe...
