Seed dispersal via ingestion by vertebrate animals (mostly birds and mammals), or endozoochory, is the dispersal mechanism for most tree species; types of zoochory are myrmecochory (by ants), chiropterochory (by bats), malacochory (by molluscs, mainly terrestrial snails), and ornithochory (by birds))
