For the experiment of food preference, leaves of Miconia chartacea from Mata Atlantica were conditioned in the Cerrado stream and also in Mata Atlantica stream, and leaves of Chrysophyllum oliviforme from Cerrado were conditioned in the Mata Atlantica stream.
The first treatment (T1) was composed of leaf disks of Chrysophyllum oliviforme from Cerrado and Miconia chartacea from Mata Atlantica that were conditioned in the Mata Atlantica stream.
In order to determine the content of tannins, 250 mg of leaves (Chrysophyllum oliviforme and Miconia chartacea) were dried at 60 [degrees]C during 48 hours in an oven, crushed and then 3 mL of extraction solution of acetone 70% were added.
