Please, cite this publication as:
This database is derived from review of several hundred papers and includes over 5,100 records. A record indicates a report of bats in general or of specific genera or species of bats pollinating or dispersing Neotropical plants. The plant and bat names as reported in the original publication are maintained. These names may or may not be the currently accepted names for the taxa. Plant family concepts are, with some exceptions, those found in Cronquist (1981), however, plant classification is currently under considerable revision because of new information provided by molecular data.
The bat/plant database can be searched by plant family name, plant genus,
plant specific epithet, bat genus, bat specific epithet. Once the relationship
has been established, a complete citation of the reference can be found
at "Literature on Neotropical Bat/Plant Interactions." We are
grateful to Heather Peckham and Alexander MacFarlane for the work they
put into these databases as part of internships at The New York Botanical
Garden and to the Beneficia Foundation and Bat Conservation International
for supporting our studies of bat/plant interactions.
