Department of Zoology and Biodiversity Research Centre, University of British Columbia, 6270 University Blvd, Vancouver, BC, Canada V6T 1Z4
Ecol Lett 10:127-34. 2007..These patterns indicate that either the direct effects of diversity on stability or their covariance with environmental fluctuations vary with latitude...
- All wet or dried up? Real differences between aquatic and terrestrial food websJonathan B Shurin
Department of Zoology, University of British Columbia, 6270 University Boulevard, Vancouver BC, Canada
Proc Biol Sci 273:1-9. 2006..Differences in food-web architecture (food chain length, the prevalence of omnivory, specialization or anti-predator defences) may arise as a consequence of systematic variation in the character of the producer community...
- Warming shifts top-down and bottom-up control of pond food web structure and functionJonathan B Shurin
Department of Zoology, University of British Columbia, 6270 University Boulevard, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, V6T 1Z4
Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 367:3008-17. 2012..Our results indicate that warming exerts a host of indirect effects on aquatic food webs mediated through shifts in the magnitudes of top-down and bottom-up forcing...
- Warming modifies trophic cascades and eutrophication in experimental freshwater communitiesPavel Kratina
Biodiversity Research Centre and Zoology Department, University of British Columbia, Vancouver BC V6T 1Z4, Canada
Ecology 93:1421-30. 2012..The dampened temporal variability of algal biomass under eutrophication at higher temperatures suggests that warming may stabilize some ecosystem processes...

- Independent gradients of producer, consumer, and microbial diversity in lake planktonAllyson Longmuir
Department of Zoology, University of British Columbia, 6270 University Boulevard, Vancouver, British Columbia V6T 1Z4, Canada
Ecology 88:1663-74. 2007..These results suggest that species of lake plankton show loose trophic associations with one another due to broad diets in consumers and decomposers...
- Organismal traits are more important than environment for species interactions in the intertidal zoneSpencer A Wood
Department of Zoology, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada
Ecol Lett 13:1160-71. 2010..These results demonstrate the potential to predict interactivity based on simple criteria without detailed information on particular species or communities...

Institute for Botany, University of Cologne, Gyrhofstrasse 15, D 50931 Cologne, Germany
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:10904-9. 2007..Our study indicates that system productivity and producer evenness determine the direction and magnitude of top-down and bottom-up control of diversity and may reconcile divergent empirical results within and among ecosystems...
