    Florian Altermatt
    Zoologisches Institut, Universitat Basel, Basel, Switzerland
    PLoS ONE 4:e4703. 2009
    ..Occupation lengths of all three Daphnia species were positively correlated with maximum hydroperiod length and negatively correlated with the number of desiccation events. Surprisingly, these effects were not species-specific...

    Florian Altermatt
    Zoological Institute, University of Basel, Vesalgasse 1, CH 4051 Basel, Switzerland
    Ecology 91:2975-82. 2010
    ..We term this an "inverse mainland-island" type metapopulation and propose that populations in small, ephemeral habitat patches may also be the driving force for metapopulation dynamics in other systems...

    Department of Environmental Science and Policy, University of California, 1 Shields Ave, Davis, CA 95616, USA
    Ecol Lett 13:1475-84. 2010
    ..Consequently, the effect of herbivorous lepidopterans may increase in herb-rich grassland ecosystems under warmer conditions, and not in forest ecosystems...

    Florian Altermatt
    Zoologisches Institut, Universitat Basel, Vesalgasse 1, 4051 Basel, Switzerland
    Oecologia 157:441-52. 2008
    ..The substantial production of ephippia by populations in small pools suggests that these populations might be important for both the dynamics and global stability of metapopulations...

    Zoologisches Institut, Universitat Basel, Vesalgasse 1, CH 4051 Basel, Switzerland
