Summary

A pollen addition experiment was conducted on the leaves of Croton setiger, a Californian forb. Pollen was added to leaves of randomly selected plants, and control plants had no pollen added. Over 2013 and 2014 the number of predatory and herbivorous insects were counted on each plant, and the number of damaged leaves and plant size were measured.

Purpose

Data were collected to test the hypothesis that pollen serves as an alternate resource for predatory arthropods that subsequently reduce the abundance of herbivorous arthropods.
