BSS and RBGE Lectures Series: Elephants, Trees and Trails
By Professor Fiona Maisels - Wildlife Conservation Society / Stirling University
Central Africa’s endangered forest elephants are obligate dispersers of a variety of large trees.
In the process of seed dispersal, they also maintain forest community structure across vast areas, transport soil nutrients long distances, and maintain forest clearings vital for a wide diversity of other large forest mammals.
