Abstract

Among close correlations between plants and animals, there is ornithochory, i.e. seed dispersal by birds. At least since 1980s, many papers have highlighted the importance of this kind of dispersal in most natural or semi-natural biomes, given that fruit pulp is an important nutritional source for many bird species. In this contribution, we report observations on plant-birds interactions, carried out in the Botanic Garden of Pisa from 2017 up to 2019.
