These data are from a field experiment at the UADY tree diversity experiment in which clay caterpillars were applied to trees to assess predation rates. Predators were identified from bite marks on the clay models as either bird, arthropod, or mammal. Clay caterpillars were exposed to predators for 2 consecutive days in an experiment that occurred twice in July 2015. Caterpillars were assessed for bite marks every 24 hours. Each row of this dataset informs the fate of each individual caterpillar after each 24 hour exposure period. Predator attacks are quantified as absence/presence for each 24-hour period. Data are given on the identity of tree species in which they were placed and whether the surrounding experimental plot was a monoculture (M, 1 tree species) or polyculture (P, 4 tree species).
