New papers were published in Biotropica edited by the Association for Tropical Biology and Conservation that involves past and present members of MECADEV. One of the study (Mendoza et al. 2018) analyzed a ten-year dataset (2001-2011) of fruit production for 45 tree and liana species from the Nouragues rainforest, French Guiana, with a novel hierarchical Bayesian approach.
