  1. pmc Disease transmission by cannibalism: rare event or common occurrence?
    Volker H W Rudolf
    Department of Biology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, VA 22904, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 274:1205-10. 2007
    ..These results are consistent with a review of the literature showing that diseases transmitted by cannibalism are infrequent in animals, even though both cannibalism and trophic transmission are very common...
  2. ncbi request reprint Species coexistence and pathogens with frequency-dependent transmission
    Volker H W Rudolf
    Department of Biology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia 22904 4327, USA
    Am Nat 166:112-8. 2005
    ..These results have important consequences for understanding the role of pathogens in species interactions and in maintaining host species diversity...
  3. ncbi request reprint The influence of size-specific indirect interactions in predator-prey systems
    Volker H W Rudolf
    Department of Biology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville 22904 4327, USA
    Ecology 87:362-71. 2006
    ..We need to account for the size structure within predator populations in order to predict how changes in predator abundance will affect predator-prey dynamics...
  4. ncbi request reprint Consequences of stage-structured predators: cannibalism, behavioral effects, and trophic cascades
    Volker H W Rudolf
    Department of Biology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia 22904, USA
    Ecology 88:2991-3003. 2007
    ..Both interaction types reduce the destabilizing effect of enrichment. These results suggest that inconsistencies between data and simple models can be resolved by accounting for stage-structured interactions within and among species...
  5. ncbi request reprint Life-history evolution in uncertain environments: bet hedging in time
    Henry M Wilbur
    Department of Biology, University of Virginia, Charlottesville, Virginia 22904, USA
    Am Nat 168:398-411. 2006
    ..Reproductive delay and adult survival can be either adaptations or constraints. Natural-history studies that estimate model parameters can resolve this uncertainty...

    Volker H W Rudolf
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Rice University, Houston, TX 77005, USA
    Ecology 89:1650-60. 2008
    ..This demonstrates that cannibalism can result in the coupling of predator and prey mortality rates that strongly determines the dynamics of predator-prey systems...
  10. doi request reprint Crossing habitat boundaries: coupling dynamics of ecosystems through complex life cycles
    Sebastian Schreiber
    Department of Evolution and Ecology, Center for Population Biology, University of California, One Shields Avenue, Davis, CA 95616, USA
    Ecol Lett 11:576-87. 2008
    ..These results demonstrate the strong yet complex interactions between ecosystems coupled through consumers with CLC and the need to think across ecosystems to reliably predict the consequences of natural or anthropogenic changes...
