    ..Importantly, regardless of disturbance type, community isolation enhances the negative consequences and hinders the positive effects of disturbances...

    Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 365:3729-42. 2010
    ..Temporal changes in biodiversity, and the seeming failure of institutional attempts to address them, underline a growing polarization of world views, which is hampering efforts to address urgent conservation needs...

    ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, James Cook University, Townsville, QLD, Australia
    Ecol Lett 11:1008-16. 2008
    ..However, spatial aggregation partially explains our results. We inspect published work on species abundance distributions, and suggest that multimodality may be a common feature of large samples...
