- Experimental Evidence of an Eco-evolutionary Feedback during Adaptive DivergenceBlake Matthews
Aquatic Ecology Department, Center for Ecology, Evolution, and Biogeochemistry, Eawag, 6047 Kastanienbaum, Switzerland Electronic address
Curr Biol 26:483-9. 2016..Overall, our results provide evidence for reciprocal interactions between ecosystem dynamics and evolutionary change (i.e., eco-evolutionary feedbacks) in the early stages of adaptive population divergence...
- Reversal in the relationship between species richness and turnover in a phytoplankton communityBlake Matthews
Eawag, Aquatic Ecology Department, Center for Ecology, Evolution, and Biogeochemistry, Lucerne, Switzerland

- Specialization of trophic position and habitat use by sticklebacks in an adaptive radiationBlake Matthews
Eawag, Aquatic Ecology Department, Center for Ecology, Evolution and Biogeochemistry, Seestrasse 79, Kastanienbaum CH 6047, Switzerland
Ecology 91:1025-34. 2010..Our results indicate that gill raker length is an important trait that underlies differentiation in both habitat use and trophic position among stickleback species, populations, and individuals...
- Sympatric and allopatric divergence of MHC genes in threespine sticklebackBlake Matthews
Aquatic Ecology Department, Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology EAWAG, Kastanienbaum, Switzerland
PLoS ONE 5:e10948. 2010..Our results indicate parallel divergence in the number of MHC alleles between sympatric stickleback species, possibly resulting from the contrasting parasite communities in littoral and pelagic habitats of lakes...
- Toward an integration of evolutionary biology and ecosystem scienceBlake Matthews
Eawag, Aquatic Ecology Department, Center for Ecology, Evolution and Biogeochemistry, Kastanienbaum 6047, Switzerland
Ecol Lett 14:690-701. 2011..g. phenotypic evolution of producer), ecological interactions (e.g. consumer grazing) and ecosystem processes (e.g. nutrient cycling). We conclude by proposing experiments to test the ecosystem consequences of evolutionary changes...
- Contrasting ecosystem-effects of morphologically similar copepodsBlake Matthews
Center for Ecology, Evolution and Biogeochemistry, Aquatic Ecology Department, Eawag Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology, Kastanienbaum, Luzern, Switzerland
PLoS ONE 6:e26700. 2011..We conclude that using morphological trait variation to assess the functional similarity of organisms may underestimate the importance of species and population diversity for ecosystem functioning...
