Department of Biology, University of Utah, 257 S 1400 East, Salt Lake City, UT 84112, USA
Science 305:663-5. 2004..Therefore, habitat specialization in this system results from an interaction of herbivore pressure with soil type...
- The growth-defense trade-off and habitat specialization by plants in Amazonian forestsPaul V A Fine
Department of Biology, University of Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah 84112, USA
Ecology 87:S150-62. 2006..We propose that the growth-defense trade-off is universal and provides an important mechanism by which herbivores govern plant distribution patterns across resource gradients...
- Strong coupling of plant and fungal community structure across western Amazonian rainforestsKabir G Peay
Department of Biology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
ISME J 7:1852-61. 2013..These data provide a much-needed look at an understudied dimension of the biota in an important ecosystem and supports the hypothesis that fungal communities are involved in the regulation of tropical tree diversity. ..

Am Nat 168:796-804. 2006..These results contribute to explanations for why most lineages have tropical origins and why tropical forests are more diverse than extratropical forests...
