Elephant Declines Imperil Africa's Forests

Poaching and habitat loss have reduced forest elephant populations in Central Africa by 63 per cent since 2001. This widespread killing poses dire consequences not only for the species itself but also for the region's forests, a new Duke University study warns. In the elephants' absence, scores of tree species may be left without a means of long-distance seed dispersal, which is essential for forest structure and colonization. Trees whose seeds are dispersed by smaller animals could fill the void, dramatically altering forest composition. Fewer elephants will also mean a more limited distribution of the nutrients contained in their dung.
