Abstract:
We sampled trophobioses from 21 May to 20 August 2011 on site A. We selected in total 146 plots from tree diversity level 1, 2, 4, 8 and 16. Because there are only two plots with tree diversity 24, we did not study the highest available tree dive...

Ants at plant wounds - A little-known trophic interaction with evolutionary implications for ant-plant interactions

Abstract:
Extrafloral nectaries (EFNs) allow plants to engage in mutualisms with ants preventing herbivory in exchange for food. EFNs occur scattered through the plant phylogeny and likely evolved independently from herbivore-created wounds subsequently vis...
