Difference in leaf herbivory between two plant-ant taxa associating with a myrmecophytic species, Macaranga lamellata

, &
Macaranga lamellata (Euphorbiaceae) is a myrmecophytic species that is protected against herbivorous insects by two plant-ant taxa, Colobopsis macarangae (Formicinae) and Crematogaster spp. (Myrmicinae). Although a single M. lamellata tree houses one plant-ant colony of either of the two taxa, both coexist in a population of M. lamellata in a Bornean rainforest. To elucidate the extent of herbivory damage upon M. lamellata trees associated with Colobopsis relative to trees associated with Crematogaster, we counted the...
