Data used to compare the proportion of partially eaten seeds differed between seed pools collected from people's bags and those collected underneath trees considering a logit-link function and a Binomial error distribution, and including “group” (i.e., gatherer or tree) as a random term. Abreviations of variable names: Bag_Tree=whether sample was taken from "Bag"= bags where humans collected seeds,or from "Tree"=from the ground where humans were collecting seeds. Prop=proportion of partially predated seeds/intact seeds log_Prop= logarithm of Prop Araucaria= number assigned to each Araucaria tree that we sampled.;Data used for the comparison of seed density in sites subject to human seed collection vs control sites. Abreviations: Site= Araucaria population sampled Den_ent= density of intact seeds found NoR= population not subject to human seeds collection R1= first population subject to human seed collection R2= second population subject to human seed collection R3= third population subject to human seed collection;Data used to test whether seed size may have influence the germination success controling for maternal effects. Abbreviations: Arau=number assigned to each Araucaria tree from which seeds were sampled P= seed weight Res: 0=seed not germinated, 1=germinated seed Treat= treatment EC= Intact seed with coat CC= Partially consumed seed with coat Cor= Hand cut seed Lar= seed lenght LcA= seed lenght counting the "wing" Anc= seed width Cant_Pre= % of seed consumed by parakeet Cant_Cor= % of seed we cut to simulate parakeet bite; Data used to plot the germination rate of seeds in each treatment after they were sown. Abbreviations: days_t0= days elapsed from the experiment started Intact= number of intact seeds that germinated till that day Part_eaten= number of partially consumed seeds that germinated till that day Hand_cut= number of hand cut seeds that germinated till that day.
