Abstract: The large, red-faced, rather scary rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) is a species of monkey a lot of us have encountered. The primate is highly adaptable, and eats almost anything - fruits, small leaves and human food. In the context of forests, the fruit-eating habit of primates makes them ecologically important as seed dispersers. Studying what kind of fruits primates prefer can reveal their importance in this important activity of seed dispersal, and in turn the impact the primates can have on forest dynamics.
