    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Kraus Natural Science Building, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48109, USA
    Nature 451:457-9. 2008
    ..Furthermore, because the species is a keystone of a larger network that contributes to the ecosystem function of pest control, this is an example of how spatial dynamics at a large scale can affect ecosystem service at a local level...
  2. doi request reprint Self-organized spatial pattern determines biodiversity in spatial competition
    John Vandermeer
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI, USA
    J Theor Biol 300:48-56. 2012
    ..We demonstrate that the qualitative nature of the spatial pattern depends on the "balance" of competition and that the number of species retained in the community depends on this spatial patterning...

    John Vandermeer
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of Michigan, USA

    J Theor Biol 238:497-504. 2006

    Science 304:284-6. 2004
    ..The specific tree species from which the twigs were derived did not explain the pattern. It appears that diversity per se at one level (twigs) creates conditions that promote diversity at another level (nesting ants)...
