The multiple, independent evolution of carnivory in diverse plant families suggests that it is an adaptation to the low nutrient, bright, waterlogged habitats in which carnivorous plants occur , the nutritional benefits of carnivory have been a traditional focus of research Givnish 6 proposed a cost–benefit model that predicts that carnivory is adaptive only in nutrient-poor Cited by:

This book presents current research on all types of ant-plant interactions, and concentrates on understanding these often complex relationships in evolutionary and ecological terms. The range of interactions varies from herbivory (leaf-cutter ants) to complex symbiosis. The ecology and evolution of ant-plant interactions [electronic resource] / Victor Rico-Gray and Paulo S.

How vital such interactions in fact are can be seen in the book The Ecology and Evolution of Ant-Plant Interactions by Victor Rico-Gray and Paulo S. Oliveira. These Mexican and Brazilian ecologists have collected more than pages of detailed information on everything that ants can do with plants. Myrmecophily (/ m ɜːr m ə ˈ k ɒ f ɪ l i / mur-mə-KOF-il-ee; literally "ant-love") is the term applied to positive interspecies associations between ants and a variety of other organisms such as plants, other arthropods, and fungi. Myrmecophily refers to mutualistic associations with ants, though in its more general use the term may also refer to commensal or even parasitic interactions.

Flowering plants, meanwhile, owe their evolutionary success to an array of interspecific interactions—such as pollination, seed dispersal, and herbivory—that have helped to shape their great diversity.
