The Ants and the Plants The range of plant species used as fungal substrate by attines is partly determined by the richness of the habitat and partly by the nutritional value, moisture content, secondary compound content, and physical characteristics of leaf tissues (Powell and Stradling 1991).

Capensis is mutualistic or antagonistic. * * * Basically, two types of interactions are considered throughout this book: antagonistic and mutualistic. Although other terms, such as commensalism, neutralism, and amensalism, are common in the literature, they are not within the scope of this book. The way the chapters are organized is based on the intimate association between antagonism and mutualism. There are several possible ways that antagonism and mutualism are related.

However, in Australia seed harvesting by ants occurs throughout the continent and is prominent in practically all major vegetation associations (Andersen 1991b).
