Sampling comments: "Ant assemblages were sampled in March and October 2010... Ants were extracted from leaf litter using the ALL (Ants of the Leaf Litter) protocol, which involves sifting and concentrating the finest leaf litter and arthropods before separating the ants with Winkler extractors... we selected five trees per species... We sampled all leaf litter in four 0.5 m2 quadrats under each focal tree (N = 5 per species; totalling 60 Winkler samples for the three focal tree species)"
