    JWM's most recent productions include: "Bandit Patrol" - the hit series about a network of wildlife rehabilitators working in Kentucky, currently in production for its second season, and "Mysteries of the Rainforest" - a two hour special, filmed in 4K, about the effects of El Niño on the mysterious wildlife of Barro Colorado Island. Abstract: Seed dispersal is a critical but poorly understood life‐history stage of plants. Here we use a genetic approach to describe seed dispersal patterns accurately in a natural population of the Neotropical tree species Jacaranda copaia (Bignoniaceae). We used microsatellite genotypes from maternally derived tissue on the diaspore to identify which individual of all possible adult trees. Egbert Giles Leigh, Jr., is a biologist for the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute and has resided on Barro Colorado Island in Panama as the staff scientist since Christian Ziegler is a celebrated nature photographer whose work focuses on ecologically oriented themes.
