    Nature 425:288-90. 2003
    ..Thus, biodiversity allows both predation (top-down) and resource limitation (bottom-up) to act simultaneously to affect herbivore populations. This result may apply generally in systems where there is a diversity of predators and prey...

    Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 358:1729-40. 2003
    ..In general, there is a close interaction between allometry, population regulation, life history and ecosystem dynamics. These relationships are relevant to applied aspects of conservation and pest management...
