Title List of plant species and traits
Downloaded 3 times
Description Table S1. Summary of fruit display traits from plant species in a subtropical Andean montane forest of NW Argentina (Southern Yungas). Fruit consumption is a relative frequency of fruit consumption for each plant species by the community of fruit-eating birds (see Methods); Nc (not consumption) indicates fruit species that are not usually eaten by birds , while a hyphen indicates species eaten by birds but without data in our databases. Fruit size is the mean fresh-fruit mass expressed in grams. Fruit colour type is described as it is perceived by humans (i.e., related to hue). Fruit chromatic contrast (ΔS) is expressed in unities of just noticeable difference (JND) between the fruit and the corresponding leaves of the species (background) (see Methods). Fruit exposure has two categories: Exposed (pendulums, erect and terminals) and Unexposed (sessile fruits and fruits that are not exposed away from the contiguous foliage). Fruit aggregation expresses the mean number of fruit in discrete and differentiable groups. Fruit crop size is the mean number of fruits of each plant species, classified into five categories: 1 (1-10 fruits), 2 (11-100), 3 (101-1000), 4 (1001-10000) and 5 ( >10000). See Methods for details. Plant systematics follows Instituto de Botánica Darwinion (2015).

Title Bases and criteria for fruit consumption data
Downloaded 2 times
Description The first step in the multi-step process we used to make raw data on fruit consumption comparable, consisted in the delimitation of datasets that were homogeneous with respect to their geographic location, forest type, collection date and sampling technique. This entailed, on the one hand, the split of some large raw datasets (e.g. covering various types of forests, or more than one season) and, on the other, the grouping of similar opportunistic records from different sources in a same dataset.

Title Construction of the phylogenetic tree
Downloaded 2 times
Description We constructed the meta-tree of plants from trees stored in Phylomatic (Webb & Donoghue 2005) and using the R package taxize (Chamberlain & Szöcs 2013). To resolve relationships not defined by Phylomatic for Muehlenbeckia and Phoradendron genera, and for the Myrsinaceae family, we used information from the webpage of the Missouri Botanical Garden (http://tropicos.org/). Phylogenetic relationships among Solanaceae (Solanum, Salpichroa, Vassobia, Dunalia, Eriolarynx and Iochroma) were resolved using trees from Levin, Watson & Bohs (2005), Bohs (2007), Weese & Bohs (2007), Olmstead et al. (2008) and Särkinen et al. (2013). Phylogenetic relationships among Celtidaceae, Myrtaceae and Rosaceae were resolved using tree from Song et al. (2001), Lucas et al (2007), and Potter et al. (2007), respectively.
