Objectives
To obtain information on the quantity and composition of the "seed rain" (seed arrival) in the major habitat types in Hong Kong; to estimate the "seed shadows" (patterns of seed dispersal) produced by the major seed dispersal agents; to obtain information on how frugivore movements, and thus seed dispersal, are influenced by landscape characteristics, such as habitat fragmentation.
