Presentation Transcript


Meg found that leaf-eating insects consumed significantly less foliage in the upper crowns of trees when compared to leaves in the middle of the crowns or within the canopy itself.




The two birds suddenly explode from the tree like a burst of fireworks and go to another tree nearby. Meg thinks that they are most likely foraging for food to bring to their young.

Lasky, K. (1997)


  • foraging: searching of fireworks and go to another tree nearby. Meg thinks that they are most likely


  • hoist of fireworks and go to another tree nearby. Meg thinks that they are most likely


The leafcutter ants do their farming in reverse, trudging up to the canopy day and night to cut dime-size disks. They then hoist the pieces overhead and carry them back down to underground chambered caverns.
