Data from: Foliar uptake of nitrogen from ant faecal droplets: an overlooked service to ant-plants

Christian Pinkalski, Karl-Martin V. Jensen, Christian Damgaard & Joachim Offenberg
Nutrient supplies to plants from ants are well known from specialised myrmecophytic symbioses and from plants growing in soil close to ant nests. However, above-ground nutrient pathways may play a largely unrecognised role also in less specialised ant–plant interactions—the numerous facultative relationships, where ants forage on plants. In a laboratory experiment, weaver ants (Oecophylla smaragdina) were confined to the canopies of coffee (Coffea arabica) seedlings, excluding any ant-to-plant transfer of nutrients via the soil strata....
