Abstract:

Trees on small islands formed when a new hydroelectric dam was filled are said to have been killed by leaf-cutter ants that were no longer regulated by their armadillo predators. This top-down hypothesis is questioned and an alternative bottom-up hypothesis is proposed: the trees died because their roots were flooded.
