    Oecologia 170:677-85. 2012
    ..These results suggest that in this system the tree can decrease herbivory by promoting ant-colony growth, i.e., sustaining space and food investment in ants, as long as the tree continues to grow...

    Department of Biology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
    Mol Ecol 21:3576-92. 2012
    ..Differences in population structure between the ants and their host trees may profoundly affect the evolutionary dynamics of this widespread ant-plant mutualism...

    PLoS Biol 11:e1001705. 2013
    ..Thus, water limitation, together with the risk of herbivory, increases the strength of a carbon-based mutualism. ..

    Ecology 92:37-46. 2011
    ..These results suggest that higher investment by trees in coccoids leads to more effective defense by ants against the tree's foliar herbivores...
