Description Sheet 1 of the data file contains data describing plant growth rates. Column A identifies the individual plant. Column B show the light treatment (0=shade, 1=sun). Column C indicates ant treatment (0=ants present, 1-ants absent. Columns D through X are measurements of plant growth rate as an estimate of increased biomass over each 2 week period. Sheet 2 of the data file contains data describing herbivory rates. Column A identifies the individual plant. Column B show the light treatment (0=shade, 1=sun). Column C indicates ant treatment (0=ants present, 1-ants absent. Columns D through X are measurements of plant herbivory rate as an estimate of % leaf area removal. Sheet 3 of the data file contains data describing plant size. Column A identifies the individual plant. Column B show the light treatment (0=shade, 1=sun). Column C indicates ant treatment (0=ants present, 1-ants absent. Columns D through AB are measurements of plant size, taken as the total number of growing stems. Sheet 4 of the data file contains data describing extrafloral nectar production. Column A identifies the individual plant. Column B show the light treatment (0=shade, 1=sun). Column C indicates ant treatment (0=ants present, 1-ants absent. Columns D through I are bi-monthly measurements of extrafloral nectar production, expressed as total sugar production from 5 leaves on each plant. Sheet 5 of the data file contains data from insect surveys conducted throughout the year long study. Column A shows the date that surveys were conducted. Column B identifies the individual plant. Column C shows the light treatment (0=shade, 1=sun). Column D indicates ant treatment (0=ants present, 1-ants absent. Column E indicates whether the survey was conducted during the day or at night (0=day, 1=night). Columns F through AY are different insects and they presence and abundance are indicated for each survey. Sheet 6 of the data file contains data describing plant reproductive fitness. Column A shows the date that data were collected. Column B identifies the individual plant. Column C shows the light treatment (0=shade, 1=sun). Column D indicates ant treatment (0=ants present, 1-ants absent. Columns E, F, G, and H indicate numbers of flowers, fruit set, mature fruit, and seeds respectively.
