In current study, the abiotic syndromes, autochory
and anemochory, together represent 69.
The species present in the upper stratum (A) and regenerative (R) environments I (AT I), II (AT II) and III (AT III) respectively, are accompanied by family, scientific name, type of dispersal (SD): Anemo = anemocoric, Auto = autochory
, Zoo = zoochoric; and environmental group (EG): Pioneer (P), climax light demanding (CL) and shade-tolerant (CS).
The analysis of dispersal syndromes was out of the scope of this study; hence the fruits were classified only according to the presence of fleshy edible parts, instead of dispersal features (zoochory, autochory
, and anemochory).
Considering the species with determined syndromes (123), the zoochory predominated in all habits, corresponding to 69%, followed by autochory
with 20% and anemochory with 11% (Figure 2).
