Downloaded 14 times
Description Field data collected across the Isthmus of Panama between May and August 2014 (rainy season). Herbivory is defined as the leaf area removed by insect herbivores. Herbivory was assessed on 3-5 leaves per individual plant and 3-18 saplings per plant species per field site. Leaves were undamaged at the beginning of the observation and measurements were taken after ~50 days exposure in the field.

Description Field data collected in June 2014 across the Isthmus of Panama. Artificial plasticine caterpillars were used to measure predation pressure. 100 caterpillars were set out in three 1-ha forest sites following procedures as described in Roslin et al. 2017 (Science).
