This chapter reviews the conservation status of plant-visiting vertebrates and the ecosystem services they provide. It describes their major threats and their ecological consequences, and offers an overview of how these threats can be mitigated. It begins with a discussion of three recent studies that illustrate the ecological consequences of disrupted mutualistic interactions between vertebrates and their food plants.

Keywords:   conservation, plant-visiting vertebrates, ecological impact, mutualisms, vertebrates, food plants
