Plant-animal interactions have become a focus of ecological research, with the processes of herbivory being of special interest. This volume examines the interactions of leaf-cutting ants with the rainforest vegetation on Barro Colorado Islands in Central America. It is the synthesis of field research on multiple scales extending over a period of several years. This work can serve as a model study summarizing and extending knowledge about herbivorous insect-plant relationships, and the resulting consequences on structural and functional features of tropical ecosystems. The text is an invaluable reference for researchers and land managers working in the fields of plant-animal interactions, herbivory, community ecology and biodiversity.

Review:

From the reviews:

"... an impressive account of almost a decades work on the ecological importance of leaf-cutting ants. ... a fascinating monograph ... So if you are asked by your librarian this year for a "wish-list of books to buy" then this monograph on the true ecosystem engineers of the tropics should definietly be on it." (Phytocoenologia)

The text is an invaluable reference for researchers and land managers working in the fields of plant-animal interactions, herbivory, community ecology and biodiversity." (Ethology, Ecology & Evolution, Vol. 16 (2), 2004)

"The recently published book by R. Wirth and co-authors is an impressive account of almost a decades’ work on the ecological importance of leaf-cutting ants. ... a fascinating monograph and hopefully an incentive for more, intensified research on the ecological impacts on leaf-cutting ants in the future. So if you are asked by your librarian this year for a ‘wish-list of books to buy’ then this monograph on the true ecosystem engineers of the tropics should definitely be on it." (Till Eggers, Phytocoenologia, Vol. 34 (1), 2004)
