Long-distance dispersal of rainforest plants


How have plants colonised different continents or islands in the history of our planet? In a new paper led by my former Postdoc Renske Onstein (now iDiv, Leipzig), we show how fruigvory-related traits plant traits have influenced the intercontinental long‚Äźdistance dispersal and disjunct biogeographical distribution of rain forest plants.
