    ..In particular, it offers a mechanistic explanation for the success of the niche model of Williams and Martinez and the frequent observation of intervality in empirical food webs...

    A G Rossberg
    Yokohama National University, Graduate School of Environment and Information Sciences, Yokohama 240 8501, Japan
    J Theor Biol 241:552-63. 2006
    ..Thus, "experts consuming families of experts" can be identified as the main underlying food-web pattern. We report the results of a systematic, quantitative model validation showing that the model is surprisingly accurate...

    A G Rossberg
    Yokohama National University, Graduate School of Environment and Information Sciences, Yokohama 240 8501, Japan
    J Theor Biol 243:261-72. 2006
    ..A preliminary application of the method to field data suggests that empirical results relating link density to diversity might need to be revisited...

    A G Rossberg
    Yokohama National University, Graduate School of Environment and Information Sciences, Yokohama 240 8501, Japan
    Ecology 89:567-80. 2008
    ..We conclude that the top-down mechanism is active in the model, and that it is a viable alternative to bottom-up mechanisms for controlling body-mass-abundance relations in natural communities...
