    Jennifer Read
    School of Biological Sciences, Monash University, Victoria 3800, Australia
    Ann Bot 103:757-67. 2009
    ..Here an investigation is made into the association between carbon-based chemical and mechanical defences, predicting that species that invest heavily in mechanical defence of leaves will invest less in chemical defence...

    Oecologia 162:1047-58. 2010
    ..Soil-plant-disturbance interactions are likely to engender different fitness-enhancing strategies on fertile and infertile soils, possibly leading to the development and/or maintenance of diversity in rainforests...

    David M Drew
    School of Biological Sciences, Monash University, Clayton Victoria 3800, Australia
    Tree Physiol 28:1573-81. 2008
    ..Most likely due to differences in conductance, the duration but not rate of the incremental daily expansion was greater in fast- than in slow-growing trees...
