This study showed that the size and degree of connectivity of forest patches in a fragmented rainforest landscape resulted in distinct patterns of seed rain according to plant guilds. This is an issue relevant to the conservation and management of the landscape as it shows the importance of patch size and its spatial arrangement on promoting habitat connectivity and the flow of animal-dispersed seeds.
