Main Experiment: Sugars in extrafloral nectar of tree species in the main experiment, 2012

Abstract:
Extrafloral nectar (EFN) is rich in sugars and amino acids and mediates the protection-for-food mutualism between EFN-plants and ants. We analyzed (via HPLC) 8 samples for the 2 EFN-tree species (Ailanthus altissima, Triadica cochinchinensis) plan...

CSPs: Leaf toughness of individual trees in the CSPs

Abstract:
Leaf toughness assessed on individual trees of species growing in the CSPs in Gutianshan Nature Reserve. For each tree seven leaves were sampled in most cases. Every single value for every leaf is given. Exceptions were made in species with very s...

Main Experiment: Sugar and amino acid choice experiment (Site A, 2012)

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 ...
