This two-minute radio program explores how dung beetles detect dung and what they do with the dung after they have buried it. A researcher explains that one way that beetles track down dung is to fly behind groups of monkeys. Beetles often perform an important ecosystem function--seed dispersal--when they bury monkey dung. Rain forest sounds, including that of a dung beetle flying, are in the background of this archived Pulse of the Planet program. A transcript is also provided.
