Thieving rodents are 'rainforest saviours'

The thieving habits of rodents have emerged as an unlikely salvation of tropical forests, research suggests.

Massive mammals known as gomphotheres once ranged the Americas, distributing big tree seeds as they roamed.

But they are extinct, and it has not been clear what is spreading seeds now.

In Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, scientists report using radio tags to show that rodents take and bury seeds, stealing from each other, spreading them far and wide.
