Abstract: Present study focuses on the different groups of arthropods visiting extrafloral nectaries of Ipomoea pes-caprae and the interactions among these different groups of arthropods. Diurnal activity patterns of arthropods on nectaries were recorded. This study also reports the presence of similar extrafloral nectaries in other species of Ipomoea.
