- A landscape theory for food web architectureNeil Rooney
Department of Integrative Biology, University of Guelph, Guelph, ON, Canada N1G 2W1
Ecol Lett 11:867-81. 2008..Finally, we demonstrated that food webs are hierarchically organized along the spatial and temporal niche axes of species and their utilization of food resources in ways that stabilize ecosystems...
- Structural asymmetry and the stability of diverse food websNeil Rooney
Department of Integrative Biology, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario N1G 2W1, Canada
Nature 442:265-9. 2006..Alarmingly, the same human actions that have been implicated in the loss of biodiversity also directly erode the very structures and processes that we show to confer stability on food webs...
- Integrating food web diversity, structure and stabilityNeil Rooney
School of Environmental Sciences, University of Guelph, Guelph, ON, N1G 2W1, Canada
Trends Ecol Evol 27:40-6. 2012..We end by discussing the processes that might generate and maintain the structured, stable and diverse food webs observed in nature...
- Food Web Structure in Temporally-Forced EcosystemsBailey C McMeans
Department of Integrative Biology, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, N1G 2W1, Canada Electronic address
Trends Ecol Evol 30:662-72. 2015..The temporal food web perspective outlined here could provide new insight into the ecosystem-level consequences of altered abiotic and biotic processes that might accompany globally changing environments. ..
- The more food webs change, the more they stay the sameKevin Shear McCann
Department of Integrative Biology, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada
Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 364:1789-801. 2009..We argue that the next major frontier in food-web theory and applied food-web ecology must consider the influence of variability on food-web structure...
