Programminfo:

Travel with us to Madagascar, 2000 years ago, when fruit-eating giant lemurs and elephant birds still walked freely over this island. At iDiv, we investigate how important were these big animals for the dispersal of palm trees with big fruits. Can big-fruited palms in Madagascar survive despite the extinction of the megafauna?
