Abstract:
Vegetation foraging ants feed to a considerable part on liquid plant exudates or on Hemipteran honeydew. Those liquids contain mainly sugars and amino acids (AA), which are attractive for the ants. We conducted a choice experiment using different artificial nectar solutions to test if nectar quality and composition (pure sugars, sugars either supplemented with essential or non-essential AA) affect the foraging decision of ants. The data also allow testing if foraging behavior is influenced by tree diversity. In brief, 1.5 ml reaction tubes were filled with the respective solutions, placed in Schima superba trees, and all ants foraging for the solutions were monitored. Please see Staab et al., 2016, Journal of Plant Ecology (doi:10.1093/jpe/rtw017) for more details on sampling.
