    Jonathan Silvertown
    Department of Environment, Earth and Ecosystems, Open University, Walton Hall, Milton Keynes, UK
    Ann Bot 110:1377-83. 2012
    ..Although this phenomenon is not unique to fynbos, this community regenerates after fire and therefore provides an opportunity to study the ecological genesis of hydrological niche segregation...

  3. doi request reprint A new dawn for citizen science
    Jonathan Silvertown
    Department of Life Sciences, The Open University, Walton Hall, Milton Keynes, UK
    Trends Ecol Evol 24:467-71. 2009
    ..Projects that involve citizen scientists are burgeoning, particularly in ecology and the environmental sciences, although the roots of citizen science go back to the very beginnings of modern science itself...

    Jonathan Silvertown
    Department of Life Sciences, The Open University, Walton Hall, Milton Keynes, MK7 6AA, UK
    Ecol Lett 12:165-70. 2009
    ..However, separate analyses have shown a negative correlation between resource addition and species richness at Park Grass and elsewhere, so genetic and species diversity appear to respond in opposite directions...
  5. ncbi request reprint Phylogeny and the hierarchical organization of plant diversity
    Jonathan Silvertown
    Department of Biological Sciences, The Open University, Walton Hall, Milton Keynes, MK7 6AA, UK
    Ecology 87:S39-49. 2006
    ..Tests against null models revealed a number of instances, including some in island radiations, in which habitat (beta niche) and elevational maximum (an aspect of the gamma niche) showed evolutionary conservatism...
  6. pmc Absence of phylogenetic signal in the niche structure of meadow plant communities
    Jonathan Silvertown
    Department of Biological Sciences, The Open University, Walton Hall, Milton Keynes MK7 6AA, UK
    Proc Biol Sci 273:39-44. 2006
    ..This determines that species must have similar beta niches in order to occupy the same habitat, but different alpha niches in order to coexist...

    Department of Biological Sciences, Ecology and Evolution Research Group, The Open University, Walton Hall, Milton Keynes MK7 6AA, UK
    Heredity (Edinb) 95:198-205. 2005
    ..As a consequence, gene flow via pollen has been severely limited and adjacent populations that had a common origin at the start of the experiment in 1856 have now diverged at neutral marker loci...

    Yoseph N Araya
    Department of Life Sciences, Open University, Milton Keynes, UK
