Carbon storage in tropical forests linked to wildlife conservation: study wildlife
Large wildlife important for carbon storage in tropical forests
large-seeded tree species which depend on big animals for seed dispersal, grow to greater sizes as adults and thus have higher carbon storage potential than species with smaller seeds in tropical forests worldwide. Losses of large seed dispersers can therefore reduce carbon storage by the Earth's tropical forests by decreasing the volume of vegetation biomass in these forests.
