    Ecology 89:2960-6. 2008
    ..In sum, pine squirrels apparently depress limber and whitebark pine stand densities, with the potential for ecosystem impacts because these pines are foundation species within Western subalpine ecosystems...

    Adam M Siepielski
    Department of Zoology and Physiology, University of Wyoming, Laramie, Wyoming 82071, USA
    Evolution 64:1120-8. 2010

    Department of Zoology and Physiology, University of Wyoming, Laramie, WY 82071, USA
    Proc Biol Sci 275:1917-25. 2008
    ..Given that adaptive evolution in response to antagonists frequently impedes one kind of mutualistic interaction, the evolution of alternative mutualistic interactions may be a common by-product...
