Loss Of Large Fruit-Eating Animals Could Accelerate Climate Change

Tropical rainforests could suffer if large fruit-eating animals such as primates, tapirs and even toucans were to go extinct, simply because trees can't disperse their seeds without the help of these animals. This could drastically accelerate the impacts of climate change since tropical forests are natural carbon sinks, according to researchers at the University of East Anglia (UEA).
