Africa Tree Database


There are three main goals for this project. 1. To compile information on plant traits, seed dispersal, seed predation, and frugivory in Africa. 2. To store the information in a way that enables analyses of plant-animal interactions. 3. To share information about plants and animals in the database. We are compiling information from published literature. Our team uses a password-protected data entry form. If you would like to add published information that is not currently in our database, please contact us. One of the scientific goals of this project is to be able to find broad patterns and trends in seed dispersal relationships across Africa. The database is structured in a way to enable analysis of plant traits along with dispersers/predators and location information. Information about plants and the animals associated with them is viewable through this database, as well as through the Encyclopedia of Life (ATD is a content partner). Several hundred photographs of plants are viewable in Flickr and the Encyclopedia of Life.
