    Science 294:1923-6. 2001
    ..The densities of seedlings and saplings of canopy trees are severely reduced on herbivore-affected islands, providing evidence of a trophic cascade unleashed in the absence of top-down regulation...

    Duke University Center for Tropical Conservation, Nicholas School of the Environment and Earth Sciences, Durham, North Carolina 27708, USA
    Ecology 89:1757-68. 2008
    ..Our results suggest that the best, and perhaps only, way to prevent compositional change and probable loss of diversity in tropical tree communities is to prohibit hunting...

    Am Nat 179:303-14. 2012
    ..I conclude that Janzen and Connell were essentially correct and that diversity maintenance results from top-down forcing acting in a spatially nonuniform fashion...

    Varun Swamy
    Nicholas School of Environment, Duke University, Durham, NC, USA
    Ecol Lett 14:195-201. 2011

    ..There are few data to suggest that they do. Yet, the greatest loss of species from climate disruption may be for tropical montane species...
