    Theor Popul Biol 65:285-98. 2004
    ..This stresses the need for experimental data on phenotypic traits, their costs and their influence on the interactions between organisms and the rest of the community...

    Laboratoire d Ecologie, UMR 7625, Ecole Normale Superieure, 46 rue d Ulm, F 75230 Paris, France
    BMC Ecol 4:6. 2004
    ..Several attempts have been made to relate these to climatic cycles. We use advanced time series analysis methods to attribute cyclicities in several North-American mammal species to abiotic vs. biotic factors...
  4. pmc Evolutionary emergence of size-structured food webs
    Nicolas Loeuille
    Laboratoire d Ecologie, Unite Mixte de Recherche 7625, Ecole Normale Superieure, 46 rue d Ulm, F 75230 Paris Cedex 5, France
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 102:5761-6. 2005
    ..Variations of two key parameters (width of consumption niche and competition intensity) allow very different food-web structures and functionings to emerge, which are similar to those observed in some of the best-documented food webs...
  5. doi request reprint Influence of evolution on the stability of ecological communities
    Nicolas Loeuille
    Laboratoire Ecologie et Evolution, Universite Pierre and Marie Curie, CNRS, UMR 7625, 7 quai St Bernard, Case 237, F 75005 Paris, France
    Ecol Lett 13:1536-45. 2010
    ..Stabilization decreases with diversity and evolution becomes destabilizing in very diverse communities. This suggests that evolution may not counteract the destabilizing effect of diversity observed in random communities...

    University of Texas, Section of Integrative Biology, Austin, Texas 78712, USA
    Am Nat 171:788-99. 2008
    ..Our findings indicate that there can be strong modification of community assembly by local adaptive processes and that these depend strongly on the relative rates of evolution, dispersal, and environmental change...
