Frugivores and seed dispersal in Tropical East Asia

Richard Corlett's new book "The Ecology of Tropical East Asia," has been  published by Oxford University Press. The Ecology of Tropical East Asia is the first book to describe the terrestrial ecology of the entire East Asian tropics and subtropics, from southern China to western Indonesia. It deals with plants, animals, and the ecosystems they inhabit, as well as the diverse threats to their survival and the options for conservation. This book provides the background knowledge of the region's ecology needed by both specialists and non-specialists to put their own work into a broader context. Oxford University Press.
