    NERC Centre for Population Biology, Imperial College at Silwood Park, Ascot, Berks, SL5 7PY, UK
    Oecologia 145:205-15. 2005
    ..Treeholes in at least the most species-poor regions appear to be unsaturated with mosquito species. In this system, therefore, local processes do not necessarily scale to global patterns...

    Diane S Srivastava
    Department of Zoology and Biodiversity Research Centre, University of British Columbia, 6270 University Blvd, Vancouver, British Columbia, V6T 1Z4, Canada
    Ecol Lett 15:637-48. 2012
    ..If these complexities can be incorporated into future studies, relationships between PD and ecosystem function bear promise in conceptually unifying evolutionary biology with ecosystem ecology...

    Diane S Srivastava
    Department of Zoology and Biodiversity Research Centre, University of British Columbia, 6270 University Blvd, Vancouver, BC, Canada, V6T 1Z4
    Oecologia 149:493-504. 2006
    ..In many systems, ecosystem functions may be impacted by strong interactions between trophic structure and habitat structure, cautioning against examining either effect in isolation...

    Diane S Srivastava
    Department of Zoology and Biodiversity Research Centre, University of British Columbia, 6270 University Blvd, Vancouver, BC V6T 1Z4, Canada
    Ecol Lett 12:1016-28. 2009
    ..These results caution that foodweb effects of multitrophic species loss may not be reliably predicted from manipulations of just one dimension of diversity...
