Lizards as Seed Dispersers in Island Ecosystems
Through this 3D animation video the laboratory of Ecology and Evolution of plants and Divulgare Group at the University of Vigo want to show the role, unknown to the general public, of the lizards as seed dispersers in island ecosystems. These lizards change their diet in insular environments incorporating many fleshy fruits. By eating these fruits, disperse their seeds with a fantastic result for the plants. The video shows the results of a research project that the laboratory of Ecology and Evolution of Plants (University of Vigo) has made in the National Park of the Atlantic Islands of Galicia (Spain) with funding from the Autonomous National Parks Organism.
