Primer registro de la dispersión de frutos de Theobroma speciosum

Resumen

Numerous Amazonian species that produce economically useful fruits have been intensively exploited, which is why wild populations were drastically reduced. Theobroma speciosum is an important species for humans and wildlife because it provides fruits for rodents and primates. This plant species is also of great economical potential because it can serve as a source of genetic variation for related species that are economically exploited as T. cacao. Here we report for the first time the seed dispersal by Sapajus apella, Mico argentatus, and Guerlinguetus aestuans. The information is useful to develop conservation strategies for this wild cocoa in remnant fragments of the forests of the eastern Amazon.
