What is the role of seed predation in plant and wildlife interactions?

    Seed predation plays a crucial role in plant and wildlife interactions, shaping ecosystems and influencing population dynamics. Some animals have evolved specialized adaptations for seed predation, contributing to seed dispersal and promoting plant diversity. Additionally, seed predation acts as a selective pressure on plant traits, influencing the evolution of seed defenses and reproductive strategies. While excessive seed predation can negatively impact plant populations, a balanced level of seed predation is essential for maintaining biodiversity and ecological balance. The intricate interplay between plants and seed-predating animals underscores the complexity of ecological relationships within ecosystems.
