  1. ncbi request reprint Biodiversity and ecosystem multifunctionality
    Andy Hector
    Institute of Environmental Sciences, University of Zurich, Winterthurerstrasse 190, CH 8057 Zurich, Switzerland
    Nature 448:188-90. 2007
    ..We conclude that because different species often influence different functions, studies focusing on individual processes in isolation will underestimate levels of biodiversity required to maintain multifunctional ecosystems...
  2. ncbi request reprint General stabilizing effects of plant diversity on grassland productivity through population asynchrony and overyielding
    A Hector
    Institute of Evolutionary Biology and Environmental Studies, University of Zurich, Winterthurerstrasse 190, CH 8057 Zurich, Switzerland
    Ecology 91:2213-20. 2010
    ..In combination with previous work, our results suggest that stabilizing effects of diversity on community productivity through population asynchrony and overyielding appear to be general in grassland ecosystems...
  3. doi request reprint Analysis of variance with unbalanced data: an update for ecology & evolution
    Andy Hector
    Institute of Environmental Sciences, University of Zurich, Winterthurerstrasse 190, CH 8057 Zurich, Switzerland
    J Anim Ecol 79:308-16. 2010
    ..4. We summarize the main recent developments and emphasize the shift away from the search for the 'right'anova table in favour of presenting one or more models that best suit the objectives of the analysis...
  4. pmc Differences in light interception in grass monocultures predict short-term competitive outcomes under productive conditions
    Eva Vojtech
    Institute of Environmental Sciences, University of Zurich, Zurich, Switzerland
    PLoS ONE 2:e499. 2007
    ..Our results are consistent with the idea that when light is a limiting resource, competition between species for this resource can be asymmetric, contributing to high dominance and low diversity...
  5. doi request reprint Competition for light causes plant biodiversity loss after eutrophication
    Yann Hautier
    Institute of Environmental Sciences, University of Zurich, Winterthurerstrasse 190, CH 8057 Zurich, Switzerland
    Science 324:636-8. 2009
    ..Our conclusions have implications for grassland management and conservation policy and underscore the need to control nutrient enrichment if plant diversity is to be preserved...
  6. pmc Seed size variability: from carob to carats
    Lindsay A Turnbull
    Institute of Environmental Sciences, University of Zurich, Winterthurerstrasse 190, Zurich 8057, Switzerland
    Biol Lett 2:397-400. 2006
    ..Interestingly, the variability of pre-metrication carat weight standards is also around 5% suggesting that human rather than natural selection gave rise to the carob myth...
  7. ncbi request reprint Conventional functional classification schemes underestimate the relationship with ecosystem functioning
    Justin P Wright
    Ecol Lett 9:111-20. 2006
    ..These results suggest that we need a more nuanced understanding of how the diversity of functional traits of species in an assemblage affects ecosystem functioning...
  8. pmc Impacts of plant diversity on biomass production increase through time because of species complementarity
    Bradley J Cardinale
    Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA 93106, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:18123-8. 2007
    ..Our results suggest that experiments to date have, if anything, underestimated the impacts of species extinction on the productivity of ecosystems...
