 The Costs and Benefits of the Cecropia-Azteca-Coccidae Symbiosis
Though Cecropia exhibits numerous apparent adaptations that encourage this symbiosis, there has been long-standing debate over whether or not the ants exploit their host tree, thereby rendering the relationship between ants and plant a parasitism.
As an example, Cecropia is capable of surviving and reproducing without Azteca, yet the ants are obligate mutualists to the tree.
The Coccids suck phloem from Cecropia throughout the day and the honeydew produced by the Coccids may be an important source of carbohydrates for adult Azteca workers (Carroll and Janzen 1973).
