  • Element 2: Pattern

    Behaviour - seed dispersers

    Flying-foxes create new forests by dispersing seeds from the fruit they eat. Flying up to 60km a night between food trees and their camp, they maintain the genetic diversity of native trees and reforest gaps in habitat. As the climate changes, this ecosystem service will become increasingly important to facilitate the flow of adaptive genes between trees and revegetate cleared land.
