Mechanisms that affect a host plant’s ability to face herbivory are subjects of ongoing interest. Plant reproductive phenology plays a key role in the dynamics of communities in many ways. In ant–plant– herbivore interactions, host-plant phenology affects traits of its herbivores which in turn determine what traits ants must have to benefit the host-plant. Diversity of plant phenological traits could influence the ecological diversity of coevolved ant–plant mutualisms. In the Brazilian savanna… CONTINUE READING
