Seed predation and seed dispersal are key factors that determine plant recruitment. In this study, we compared the role of small (<200 g) and 'large' mammals as predators of <i>Araucaria angustifolia</i> (Araucariaceae) seeds in the Brazilian Araucaria Forest. We also investigated the effect of deposition site, namely open grassland, forest edge or forest interior (>50 m from the edge) on seed-removal rates. We conducted field experiments on seed removal in July 2003 and 2004.
