Great Mom of the Plant Kingdom
Myrmecophytism is a mutualistic relationship formed with ant colonies, where the tree provides food and shelter and the ants protect the tree from herbivores and encroaching vines. These two species have coadapted to each other, meaning that each species has evolved their traits in response to pressures from the other.
This relationship further proves the importance of caring for the one that cares for you, especially today! Happy Mother's Day to all the great moms! Moms, this is for you - use MOTHEREARTH at checkout today for 25% off your Loomstate purchase.
