Coadaptation entre rythmes de fructification et frugivorie en forêt tropicale humide du Gabon: mythe ou réalité. (Coadaptation between fruiting periodicity and frugivory in a Gaboon rain forest: myth or reality)


Fruiting patterns were studied for a year in lowland evergreen forest at Makokou, Gabon. The results are compared to those reported for other tropical rainforests. Although the AA showed in a simultaneous study that there are broad suites of morphological fruit characters associated with broad categories of consumers (Gautier-Hion et al., 1985), the results presented here do not suggest an evolutionary influence of consumers on the timing of fruiting.
