Biodiversity maintenance in food webs with regulatory environmental feedbacks
Although the food web is one of the most fundamental and oldest concepts in ecology, elucidating the strategies and structures by which natural communities of species persist remains a challenge to empirical and theoretical ...
Ontogenetic functional diversity: Size structure of a keystone predator drives functioning of a complex ecosystem
A central challenge in community ecology is to understand the connection between biodiversity and the functioning of ecosystems. While traditional approaches have largely focused on species-level diversity, increasing ...
Resolving the roles of body size and species identity in driving functional diversity
Efforts to characterize food webs have generated two influential approaches that reduce the complexity of natural communities. The traditional approach groups individuals based on their species identity, while recently ...
