Issue 33×02 is out! Our cover photo shows a Margarops fuscatus (photo credit: Tomás A. Carlo),, from González‐Castro et al’s How does avian seed dispersal shape the structure of early successional tropical forests? For this paper, the authors performed a seed‐addition field experiment to investigate how frugivorous birds shape the composition and richness of forests during early stages of secondary succession in cleared areas in Puerto Rico. You can read a Q&A with the author, Dr Aarón González Castro, here: Fruit-eating birds can leave their signature on regenerating tropical plant communities.
Also in this issue, Hutchinson et al’s new Review paper: Seeing the forest for the trees: Putting multilayer networks to work for community ecology plus research on plant‐animal interactions, animal physiological ecology, evolutionary ecology, community ecology and ecosystem ecology
