Seeds of the small-seeded tree Ocotea endresiana (Lauraceae) are dispersed preferentially to gap edges below standing dead trees (perches) by bellbirds (Procnias tricarunculata), whereas four other bird species disperse the seeds at random with respect to canopy heterogeneity (Wenny & L evey, 1998).
Four species of birds (Emerald Toucanet, Aulacorhynchus prasinus; Resplendent Quetzal, Pharomachrus mocinno; Three-wattled Bellbird, Procnias tricarunculata; and Mountain Robin, Turdus plebejus) dispersed the seeds by regurgitation, and one species (Black Guan, Chamaepetes unicolor), by defecation.
The only exception is the Three-Wattled Bellbird (Procnias tricarunculatus) for which annual counts during a six year period estimate 116-248 individuals in Monteverde (Sandoval, 2014).
