Data from: Are tree species diversity and genotypic diversity effects on insect herbivores mediated by ants?

María José Campos-Navarrete, Luis Abdala-Roberts, Miguel A. Munguía-Rosas & Víctor Parra-Tabla
Plant diversity can influence predators and omnivores and such effects may in turn influence herbivores and plants. However, evidence for these ecological feedbacks is rare. We evaluated if the effects of tree species (SD) and genotypic diversity (GD) on the abundance of different guilds of insect herbivores associated with big-leaf mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla) were contingent upon the protective effects of ants tending extra-floral nectaries of this species. This study was conducted within a larger experiment...
