- Evolution and the latitudinal diversity gradient: speciation, extinction and biogeographyGary G Mittelbach
W K Kellogg Biological Station and Department of Zoology, Michigan State University, Hickory Corners, MI 49060, USA
Ecol Lett 10:315-31. 2007..Distinguishing the roles of history, speciation and extinction in the origin of the latitudinal gradient represents a major challenge to future research...
- Fish reintroductions reveal smooth transitions between lake community statesGary G Mittelbach
W K Kellogg Biological Station, Michigan State University, Hickory Corners 49060, USA
Ecology 87:312-8. 2006..Thus, there was little evidence of discontinuity in this system where transitions are strongly driven by planktivory...
- Perturbations alter community convergence, divergence, and formation of multiple community statesGregory R Houseman
W K Kellogg Biological Station, Michigan State University, Hickory Corners, Michigan 49060 9516, USA
Ecology 89:2172-80. 2008..Furthermore, multiple perturbations may have complex effects on community dispersion, yielding convergence or divergence patterns that are difficult to predict based on analysis of single factors...
- Recycling‐mediated facilitation and coexistence based on plant sizeAntonio J Golubski
W K Kellogg Biological Station, Michigan State University, Hickory Corners, MI 49060, USA
Am Nat 176:588-600. 2010..Our model suggests that the effects of plant size on competitive outcomes may depend critically on the degree of resource recycling found in the system and, reciprocally, that the effects of recycling may depend on plant size...
- Resource heterogeneity, soil fertility, and species diversity: effects of clonal species on plant communitiesJ Alexander Eilts
W K Kellogg Biological Station, Michigan State University, Hickory Corners, 49060, USA
Am Nat 177:574-88. 2011..Thus, we find support for the hypothesis that plant size and resource heterogeneity interact to determine species diversity...
- Competition among plant species that interact with their environment at different spatial scalesAntonio J Golubski
W K Kellogg Biological Station, Michigan State University, 3700 East Gull Lake Drive, Hickory Corners, MI 49060, USA
Proc Biol Sci 275:1897-906. 2008..Implications for the interpretations of species' zero net growth isoclines and Rs are also discussed...
- Large-scale biodiversity patterns in freshwater phytoplanktonMaayke Stomp
Kellogg Biological Station, Department of Plant Biology, Michigan State University, Hickory Corners, Michigan 49060, USA
Ecology 92:2096-107. 2011..These results imply that changes in land use or climate that affect these local environmental factors are likely to have major impacts on large-scale biodiversity patterns of freshwater phytoplankton...
- Consequences of niche overlap for ecosystem functioning: an experimental test with pond grazersJeremy M Wojdak
W K Kellogg Biological Station, Department of Zoology, Michigan State University, 3700 E Gull Lake Drive, Hickory Corners, Michigan 49060, USA
Ecology 88:2072-83. 2007..The analytical approach employed here may profitably be used in other systems to quantify the role of niche complementarity in species richness-ecosystem function relationships...
- Regional coexistence and local dominance in Chaoborus: species sorting along a predation gradientErica A Garcia
Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island 02912, USA
Ecology 89:1703-13. 2008..Furthermore, prey preference experiments confirm that size selective predation and differences in Chaoborus species traits contribute to the pattern of Chaoborus abundance and distribution...
