Although other theories have been used to explain clumped distribution of plant species (Levine & Murrell, 2003; Boll et al., 2005), dispersal limitation has been suggested as one of the most plausible reasons in the case of Aphandra natalia, mainly because its seeds are large and its dispersers (agouties and squirrels) can only carry seeds over short distances.
