Data from: Tree seedling responses to leaf-cutting ants herbivory in Atlantic Forest restoration sites

Jose Marcelo Domingues Torezan, Jessica Magon Garcia, Alexandre De Mello Bordignon & Gessi De Sousa Gonzaga
Leaf-cutting ants (LCA) are generalist herbivores capable of causing severe plant damage. Negative impacts of ant herbivory vary according to the density of nests and availability of palatable plants; however, it is not yet clear how these herbivores affect tropical forest restoration sites. To investigate how LCA preference affects plant species performance, we evaluated the herbivory of Atta sexdens rubropilosa on native tree species seedlings in Atlantic Forest restoration sites. We expected pioneer species to...
