Natural regeneration of an autochorus species in the forest of French Guiana: Eperua falcata Aublet (Caesalpiniaceae)



Natural regeneration of an autochorus species in the forest of French Guiana: Eperua falcata Aublet (Caesalpiniaceae)



Biotropica 21(2): 115-125



Studies on a 2500-msuperscript 2 plot showed that Eperua falcata flowered during the dry season and had fruits that matured during the wet season. Seeds were dispersed when the humidity decreased enough to promote bursting of the pod. Nearly 60% of seeds fell less than 10 m from the parent tree and maximum dispersal distance was 30 m. Seeds were slowly eaten; predation by rodents was not dependent on distance from the parent.
