Over the last 2.6 million years, palm trees with very large fruits increasingly disappear from tropical rainforests worldwide. In some parts of the world (e.g. in the insular South-East Asian region), palm trees with very large fruits have adapted to global change by producing smaller fruits. In other parts of the world (e.g. in Latin America), they have gone extinct with increasing rates. The results were published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B and are available here.
