When can herbivores reverse the spread of an invading plant? A test case from Mount St. Helens
(American Naturalist, 2005)
Here we study the spatial dynamics of a coinvading consumerresource pair. We present a theoretical treatment with extensive empirical data from a longstudied field system in which native herbivorous insects attack a ...
Trophic interactions during primary succession: Herbivores slow the reinvasion of lupines on Mount St. Helens
(American Naturalist, 2000)
Lupines (Lupinus lepidus var. lobbii), the earliest plant colonists of primary successional habitats at Mount St. Helens, were expected to strongly affect successional trajectories through facilitative effects. However, ...
A Stoichiometric Model of Early Plant Primary Succession
(American Naturalist, 2011)
The relative importance of plant facilitation and competition during primary succession depends on the development of ecosystem nutrient pools, yet the interaction of these processes remains poorly understood. To explore ...
