    Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology, University of California, Santa Barbara, California 93106, USA
    Am Nat 164:350-63. 2004
    ..We conclude that contrary to conventional predictions of conservation and population biology, yearly fluctuations in climate may be essential for the persistence of rare species in invaded habitats...
  2. ncbi Plant-soil feedbacks and invasive spread
    Jonathan M Levine
    Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology, University of California, Santa Barbara, CA 93106 9610, USA
    Ecol Lett 9:1005-14. 2006
    ..We discuss how future research might consider the way landscape structure, dispersal patterns, and the time scales over which plant-soil feedbacks develop regulate the effects of such feedbacks on invader spread...

    Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology, University of California, Santa Barbara, California 93106, USA
    Nature 461:254-7. 2009
    ..Our work thus provides strong evidence that species differences have a critical role in stabilizing species diversity...
  5. ncbi Do competitors modulate rare plant response to precipitation change?
    Jonathan M Levine
    Department of Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology, University of California, Santa Barbara, California 93106, USA
    Ecology 91:130-40. 2010
    ..Ultimately, the strength of the indirect effect depends on how strongly climate change alters competition, and how sensitive focal species are to changes in competition...
  6. doi Density dependence slows invader spread in fragmented landscapes
    Elizaveta Pachepsky
    Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology, University of California, Santa Barbara, California 93106, USA
    Am Nat 177:18-28. 2011
    ..Our work suggests that ecologists must consider reproduction at both low and high densities when predicting invader spread...

    Jonathan M Levine
    Department of Ecology, Evolution and Marine Biology, University of California, Santa Barbara, California 93106, USA
    Ecology 92:2236-47. 2011
    ..Our work suggests that, because of species-specific cues for demographic transitions such as germination, changes to discrete climate events may be as, if not more, important than changes to season-long variables...

    Stephanie G Yelenik
    Department of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology, University of California, Santa Barbara, California 93106, USA
    Ecology 92:66-74. 2011

  10. doi Abiotic and biotic resistance to grass invasion in serpentine annual plant communities
    Barbara Marie Going
    Department of Environmental Science and Policy, University of California, 3132 Wickson Hall, Davis, CA 95616, USA
    Oecologia 159:839-47. 2009

    Department of Organismic Biology, Ecology and Evolution, 621 Charles E Young Drive South, Box 951606, University of California, Los Angeles, CA 90095 1606, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 270:775-81. 2003
