    Ross A Coleman
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Southampton, SO16 7PX, Southampton, UK
    Oecologia 147:556-64. 2006
    ..Here we show a clear trophic control of an ecosystem in that grazing by limpets not only determines macroalgal abundance overall but also modifies ecosystem stability via variability in cover of algae...

    Ross A Coleman
    Marine Biology and Ecology Research Centre, School of Biological Sciences, University of Plymouth, Plymouth, PL4 8AA, UK
    Oecologia 151:454-63. 2007
    ..obtusata. This is the first demonstration of such behavioural consequences of herbivore-induced changes in plants for marine systems...

    Esther M Borell

    Oecologia 140:328-34. 2004
    ..nodosum does not conform to these predictions. Increased dispersal of feeding damage on A. nodosum away from primary frond tissues would reduce the likelihood of frond breakage implying a fitness benefit of induced resistance...
  4. ncbi request reprint Overestimations of food abundance: predator responses to prey aggregation
    Ross A Coleman
    Marine Biology and Ecology Research Centre, School of Biological Sciences, University of Plymouth, Drake Circus, Plymouth PL4 8AA, United Kingdom
    Ecology 89:1777-83. 2008
    ..This has implications for assessment of food supply for avian predators on rocky shores, with consequences for our understanding of previously documented trophic cascades...

    Andrew Foggo
    Marine Biology and Ecology Research Centre, School of Biological Sciences, University of Plymouth, Davy 617, Drake Circus, Plymouth PL4 8AA, UK
    Oecologia 154:505-12. 2007
    ..This study demonstrates the potential for UV-B to elicit a variety of interactions between trophic levels, most likely mediated through effects upon host plant chemistry...
  6. pmc Environmental calcium modifies induced defences in snails
    Simon D Rundle
    School of Biological Sciences, University of Plymouth, Plymouth PL4 8AA, UK
    Proc Biol Sci 271:S67-70. 2004
    ..There was no trade-off of somatic growth with plasticity. We suggest that the expression of defensive traits in molluscs can be constrained by calcium availability, which has implications for molluscan ecology and evolution...

    ..Comparing different habitats requires appropriate experimentation to ensure that variability within habitats is also investigated...
