Colonization pattern of Cecropia by Azteca ants: Influence of plant ontogeny, environment and host plant choice by queens
(California State University, 2014)
Native and non-native ruderals experience similar plant: soil feedbacks and neighbor effects in a system where they coexist
(Springer Heidelberg, 2015-07)
Recent applications of coexistence theory to plant invasions posit that non-natives establish in resident communities through either niche differences or traits conferring them with fitness advantages, the former being ...
Sites of Defoliation by Atta sexdens rubropilosa (Hymenoptera, Formicidae) in Artificial Plants
(California State University, 2009-01-01)
This study aimed to achieve a better understanding about the foraging behavior of leaf-cutter ant (Atta sexdens rubropilosa Forel) workers with respect to defoliation sites in plants. To accomplish that, artificial plants ...
Meaningful traits for grouping plant species across arid ecosystems
(Springer Tokyo, 2016-05)
Grouping species may provide some degree of simplification to understand the ecological function of plants on key ecosystem processes. We asked whether groups of plant species based on morpho-chemical traits associated ...
Diverse urban plantings managed with sufficient resource availability can increase plant productivity and arthropod diversity
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2014-10-30)
Buildings structures and surfaces are explicitly being used to grow plants, and these "urban plantings" are generally designed for aesthetic value. Urban plantings also have the potential to contribute significant "ecological ...
