- Additive effects of simulated climate changes, elevated CO2, and nitrogen deposition on grassland diversityErika S Zavaleta
Department of Biological Sciences, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305 5020, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 100:7650-4. 2003..Our results show that climate and atmospheric changes can rapidly alter biological diversity, with combined effects that, at least in some settings, are simple, additive combinations of single-factor effects...
- Responses of grassland production to single and multiple global environmental changesJeffrey S Dukes
Department of Global Ecology, Carnegie Institution of Washington, Stanford, California, USA
PLoS Biol 3:e319. 2005..Aside from this nitrate response, expectations that a changing atmosphere and climate would promote carbon storage by increasing plant growth appear unlikely to be realized in this system...
- Plants reverse warming effect on ecosystem water balanceErika S Zavaleta
Department of Biological Sciences and Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 100:9892-3. 2003..Our findings illustrate the potential for organism-environment interactions to modify the direction as well as the magnitude of global change effects on ecosystem functioning...
- Conservation planning for ecosystem servicesKai M A Chan
Center for Conservation Biology, Department of Biological Sciences, Stanford University, Stanford, California, USA
PLoS Biol 4:e379. 2006..We found that although there are important potential trade-offs between conservation for biodiversity and for ecosystem services, a systematic planning framework offers scope for identifying valuable synergies...

- Conserving biodiversity efficiently: what to do, where, and whenKerrie A Wilson
The Ecology Centre, School of Integrative Biology, University of Queensland, St Lucia, Queensland, Australia
PLoS Biol 5:e223. 2007..Applying this new framework will ensure investment in actions that provide the most cost-effective outcomes for biodiversity conservation. This will help to minimise the misallocation of scarce conservation resources...
