Epiphytic myrmecophytes in Sarawak : mutualism through the feeding of plants by ants

Epiphytic myrmecophytes in Sarawak : mutualism through the feeding of plants by ants

Biotropica 6(4): 237-259

Reports a study of four epiphytic myrmecophytes, including the common epiphytic subshrub Hydnophytum formicarium, growing in poor secondary forest on white sands in the Bako National Park during 1972.
