Abstract

Flying Foxes have adapted to feed on a range of introduced ornamental plants species. In the past, Flying Foxes have been implicated in seed dispersal from the source plant back to the roost. This paper documents a dispersal of Queen palm drupes to an intermediate feeding location. The state of knowledge on the consumption of Queen Palm drupes by Flying Foxes is reviewed in the context of the distribution, dispersal and establishment of the palms in the Australian environment.
