Abstract: ABSTRACT. Didelphis albiventris as germination inductors of Rapanea ferruginea (Myrcinaceae) in Cerrado area in Mato Grosso do Sul, Brazil. Endozoochorism is one of the most important processes of seed dispersal in tropical rainforests, mostly dependent on birds and mammals, whose digestive systems cause chemical scarification and germination of the seeds passing through. The opossum Didelphis albiventris Lund, a small a small omnivorous and noctivagous mammal that feeds, among other plants, on Rapanea ferrugi… Show more

“…Only Passiflora edulis Sims exhibited a higher germination percentage in the test group. In turn, Oliveira and Leme (2013) tested the germination potential of Rapanea ferruginea (Ruiz et Pav.) after passage through the digestive tract of D. albiventris and reported that both germination percentage and germination velocity were higher than for other treatments and a control group.…”

“…Many authors (e.g. Bocchese et al 2008, Camargo et al 2011, Oliveira & Leme 2013 consider that endozoochory is the most important of all of the various different animal-plant dispersal mechanisms. However, this interaction process can have varying results in terms of induction of germination because animals species' habits and behavior differ.…”

“…Ocorre do México ao Uruguai (Otegui 1998) e no Brasil está presente desde a Bahia ao extremo sul do Rio Grande do Sul (Carvalho 2003), estado onde se encontra em todas as formações florestais (Sobral et al 2006). É uma espécie pioneira, cujos frutos de dispersão zoocórica, são produzidos em abundância (Lorenzi 1992, Backes & Irgang 2002, Carvalho 2003) e amplamente consumidos pela fauna, que se encarrega da dispersão das sementes, sendo seus principais agentes dispersores as aves (Pineschi 1990, Pizo et al 2002, Jesus & Monteiro Filho 2007, Basler et al 2009, Begnini & Castellani 2013, Kaminski 2013, mas também mamíferos (Kuhlmann 1975, Oliveira & Leme 2013.…”
