In this National Geographic News article, read about how lemurs may be the only animals that can spread the seeds of certain trees on the island of Madagascar. As these primates disappear, so too may the trees that depend on them, scientists say. A sidebar on plant ecology as a career is included, as are links to related stories and Web sites and to streaming audio news stories on the "Pulse of the Planet" radio broadcast Web site.
