Animals affect plant distributions by internal transport of seeds (endozoochory). However, quantifying seed survival after animal consumption requires animal experiments. In this project, a new bio-assay is developed to test seed survival using artificial digestion. Subsequently, seed dispersal is modelled based on seed survival, retention time and animal movement.
