    Ecology 88:26-31. 2007
    ..These results demonstrate that the loss of species at one trophic level can lead to reduced richness at lower trophic levels via competition and reduced temporal stability...
  2. pmc Public information for the assessment of quality: a widespread social phenomenon
    Thomas J Valone
    Department of Biology, Saint Louis University, St Louis, MO 63103, USA
    Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 357:1549-57. 2002
    ..Such work should lead to a more complete understanding of the behaviour of individuals in social aggregations...

    Thomas J Valone
    Department of Biology, St Louis University, St Louis, Missouri 63103, USA
    Ecology 89:522-31. 2008
    ..As such, our review suggests that the insurance hypothesis may not be a strong mechanism stabilizing fluctuations in natural terrestrial communities...

    Ginger R H Allington
    Department of Biology, Saint Louis University, St Louis, MO 63103, USA
    Ecol Lett 16:158-66. 2013
    ..We show that fluctuations in consumption and resources can create niche opportunities for invaders and highlight the need for additional long-term studies to track the influence of changing climate and community dynamics on invasions...

    Luc Alain Giraldeau
    Departement des Sciences Biologiques, Universite du Quebec a Montreal, Case Postale 8888, Succursale Centre Ville, Montreal, QC Canada H3C 3P8

    Science 305:487-91. 2004
    ..The use of public information is taxonomically widespread and can enhance fitness. Public information can lead to cultural evolution, which we suggest may then affect biological evolution...
