Do animals help trees?

    Many trees depend on certain animals for survival.  Though there are lots of cases of trees and animals interacting in a mutually positive fashion, one of the best examples is provided by trees that depend on animals for pollination.  Most trees that flower – such as apple, cherry, and peach trees as well as many less familiar tropical species – rely on insects, birds, or mammals to transfer pollen from one flower to another and so make reproduction possible.  Bees, butterflies, moths, flies, and beetles are all common insect pollinators, and the flowers of some tropical trees have evolved to only be pollinated by a single insect species.  Hummingbirds and other small bird species can be important pollinators too, as well as many bats – again, especially in the tropics.
