    Christian O Marks
    Biology Department, McGill University, 1205 Dr Penfield Avenue, Montreal, Quebec H3A 1B1, Canada
    Am Nat 167:55-66. 2006
    ..We show that separate lineages of seedlings evolving in identical environments result in many alternative functional designs of approximately equal fitness...

    Christian O Marks
    Biology Department, McGill University, Dr Penfield Avenue, Montreal, Quebec, H3A 1B1, Canada
    Evolution 61:455-69. 2007
    ..Consequently, I predict that in nature variation in organ level traits is most closely related to phylogeny, whereas variation in whole plant traits is most closely related to ecology...

  4. ncbi request reprint Comparing tropical forest tree size distributions with the predictions of metabolic ecology and equilibrium models
    Helene C Muller-Landau
    Ecol Lett 9:589-602. 2006
    ..In most forests, size distributions are much closer to the predictions of demographic equilibrium, and thus, intersite variation in size distributions is explained partly by intersite variation in growth and mortality...
  5. ncbi request reprint Comment on "From plant traits to plant communities: a statistical mechanistic approach to biodiversity"
    Christian O Marks
    Department of Ecology, Evolution and Behavior, University of Minnesota, 1987 Upper Buford Circle, St Paul, MN 55108, USA
    Science 316:1425; author reply 1425. 2007
    ..We show that the entropy maximization assumption is relatively unimportant and that the high accuracy is due largely to a statistical effect...
