Tropical forest restoration in open areas is often slowed by
limited seed rain and unfavorable conditions for tree seedling establishment.
Isolated remnant trees, a common feature of degraded anthropogenic landscapes,
may alleviate these problems. Remnant trees increase seedling recruitment in
part by attracting frugivorous animals, which amplify the quantity and
diversity of seed rain. We examined the sensitivity to human disturbance
of volant frugivore visitation to remnant trees in a
highly disturbed site of Tamil Nadu,
