- Predator diversity dampens trophic cascadesDeborah L Finke
Department of Entomology, University of Maryland, College Park, Maryland 20742, USA
Nature 429:407-10. 2004..We show that enhancing predator diversity dampens enemy effects on herbivores and weakens trophic cascades. Consequently, changes in diversity at higher trophic levels can significantly alter ecosystem function in natural systems...
- Spatial refuge from intraguild predation: implications for prey suppression and trophic cascadesDeborah L Finke
Department of Entomology, University of Maryland, College Park, MD, 20742, USA
Oecologia 149:265-75. 2006..Therefore, changes in habitat complexity can enhance trophic cascades by predator communities and positively impact productivity by moderating negative interactions among predators...
- Robert F. Denno (1945-2008): insect ecologist extraordinaireMicky D Eubanks
Department of Entomology, Texas A and M University, College Station, Texas 77843, USA
Annu Rev Entomol 56:273-92. 2011..As a result, Denno's legacy will continue to shape the field of insect ecology for generations to come...
- Niche partitioning increases resource exploitation by diverse communitiesDeborah L Finke
Department of Entomology, Washington State University, Pullman, WA 99164, USA
Science 321:1488-90. 2008..Therefore, resource partitioning, and not diversity per se, fostered greater overall resource consumption in our multispecies consumer communities...
- Predator biodiversity strengthens herbivore suppressionWilliam E Snyder
Ecol Lett 9:789-96. 2006..Our study suggests a harmonious relationship between predator conservation and herbivore control, and a relatively weak role for predator interference, within this community...
