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 ...
Revenge of the host: cannibalism, ontogenetic niche shifts, and the evolution of life-history strategies in host-parasitoid systems
(Evolutionary Ecology, Ltd., 2012)
Question: How does cannibalism in the host alter the evolution of a parasitoid’s oviposition strategy? Can differences in cannibalism risk between parasitized and healthy hosts alter the stage-specific foraging of parasitoids? ...
