    Chad E Brassil
    Department of Zoology, University of Toronto, 25 Harbord Street, Toronto, Ontario M5S 3G5, Canada
    Am Nat 167:43-54. 2006
    ..Models that include nonlinear numerical responses generally lead to indirect effects that are sensitive to environmental variation in more parameters and across a wider range of frequencies...

    Am Nat 162:668-84. 2003
