This study took place in 1985 and
1986, during September, October, and November. The authors surveyed
variation in the ant associates of eight myrmecophytes of the tropical
moist forests of western Amazonia.
The authors recorded their data by
counting the number of visits of each ant species to each plant
species. Data are presented as an interaction frequency matrix, in
which cells with positive integers indicate the frequency of
interaction between a pair of species, and cells with zeros indicate no
