- The prevalence of asymmetrical indirect effects in two-host-one-parasitoid systemsChad E Brassil
Department of Zoology, University of Toronto, 25 Harbord St, Toronto, Ont, Canada M5S 3G5
Theor Popul Biol 66:71-82. 2004..However, the absence of positive indirect effects in empirical studies constitutes a puzzling inconsistency between the empirical and theoretical literatures...
- Can environmental variation generate positive indirect effects in a model of shared predation?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...
- Dynamics and responses to mortality rates of competing predators undergoing predator-prey cyclesPeter A Abrams
Department of Zoology, The University of Toronto, 25 Harbord Street, Toronto, Ont, Canada M5S 3G5
Theor Popul Biol 64:163-76. 2003..The patterns described here occur in many other competition models in which there are cycles and differences in the linearity of the responses of consumers to their resources...
- Dynamic versus instantaneous models of diet choiceBrian O Ma
Department of Zoology, University of Toronto, 25 Harbord Street, Toronto, Ontario, M5S 3G5, Canada
Am Nat 162:668-84. 2003..The results suggest possible behavioral mechanisms leading to complex population dynamics and highlight the need for more empirical study of the dynamics of behavioral change...
- Rapid senescence in pacific salmonYolanda E Morbey
Department of Zoology, Ramsay Wright Zoological Laboratories, University of Toronto, 25 Harbord Street, Toronto, Ontario M5S 3G5, Canada
Am Nat 166:556-68. 2005..In particular, we encourage further research to disentangle the relative importance of adaptive and nonadaptive variation in senescence...
- Environmental effects on the expression of life span and aging: an extreme contrast between wild and captive cohorts of Telostylinus angusticollis (Diptera: Neriidae)Noriyoshi Kawasaki
Evolution and Ecology Research Centre and School of Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of New South Wales, Sydney 2052, New South Wales, Australia
Am Nat 172:346-57. 2008..These findings have important implications for evolutionary gerontology and, more generally, for the interpretation of fitness estimates in captive populations...
