    Hopkins Marine Station, Stanford University, Pacific Grove, CA 93950, USA
    Sci Rep 2:409. 2012
    ..Taken together these findings provide a compelling example of how anthropogenic disturbance may be contributing to widespread reductions in ecological interaction chain length, thereby isolating and simplifying ecosystems...
  4. ncbi request reprint Evaluating the performance of methods for estimating the abundance of rapidly declining coastal shark populations
    Douglas J McCauley
    Hopkins Marine Station, Stanford University, Pacific Grove, California 93950, USA
    Ecol Appl 22:385-92. 2012
    ..These findings can help to improve the ways we monitor, manage, and understand the ecology of globally imperiled coastal shark populations...
  5. pmc Effects of spatial subsidies and habitat structure on the foraging ecology and size of geckos
    Amy A Briggs
    Department of Biology, Stanford University, Stanford, California, United States of America
    PLoS ONE 7:e41364. 2012
    ..Strong changes in trophic position of consumers also suggest that subsidies may drive increasingly complex food webs, with longer overall food chain length...
  6. pmc Plants cause ecosystem nutrient depletion via the interruption of bird-derived spatial subsidies
    Hillary S Young
    Department of Biology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 107:2072-7. 2010
    ..Equally important, the case of C. nucifera provides a strong demonstration of how plant community changes can dramatically impact the supply of allochthonous nutrients and thereby reshape energy flow in ecosystems...
  7. pmc Herbivore-initiated interaction cascades and their modulation by productivity in an African savanna
    Robert M Pringle
    Department of Biological Sciences, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 104:193-7. 2007
    ..Hence, the strongest indirect effects (and thus, the greatest risks to ecosystem integrity after large mammals are extirpated) are likely to occur in low-productivity habitats...

    Douglas J McCauley
    Department of Biological Sciences, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
    J Vector Ecol 33:263-8. 2008
    ..Because these fleas also parasitize humans and can serve as disease vectors, this work empirically demonstrates a potential mechanism by which ecosystem alterations could affect human risk for zoonotic diseases...

    Hillary S Young
    Department of Biology, Stanford University, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
    Oecologia 172:857-67. 2013
    ..We posit that preference for rare species by herbivores may be prevalent in low- or moderate-diversity systems, and that these effects may help explain diversity patterns across different spatial scales in such ecosystems...
