Data from: Tritrophic interactions at a community level: effects of host-plant species quality on bird predation of caterpillars

Michael S. Singer, Timothy E. Farkas, Christian M. Skorik & Kailen A. Mooney
Effects of plant traits on herbivore-carnivore interactions are well documented in component communities, but are not well understood at the level of large, complex communities. We report on a two-year field experiment testing mechanisms by which variation in food quality among eight temperate forest tree species alters avian suppression of an assemblage of dietary generalist caterpillars. Plant quality and bird effects varied dramatically among tree species; high quality plants yielded herbivores of 50% greater mass...
