We assessed density- and distance-dependence in herbivore effects and juvenile condition for four species of Shorea, the most speciose genus in the dominant canopy family of southeast Asian rain forest trees (Dipterocarpaceae). Herbivore damage was quantified as partial leaf loss on young leaves, and whole plant foliar condition as the product of the fraction of leaf nodes containing leaves and the fraction of tissue remaining on extant leaves. Adults of the four species were centers of high… CONTINUE READING
