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 ...
Successional Change in Phosphorus Stoichiometry Explains the Inverse Relationship between Herbivory and Lupin Density on Mount St. Helens
(PLoS One, 2009)
The average nitrogen-to-phosphorus ratio (N?P) of insect herbivores is less than that of leaves, suggesting that P may mediate plant-insect interactions more often than appreciated. We investigated whether succession-related ...
N-P Co-Limitation of Primary Production and Response of Arthropods to N and P in Early Primary Succession on Mount St. Helens Volcano
(PLoS One, 2010)
The effect of low nutrient availability on plant-consumer interactions during early succession is poorly understood. The low productivity and complexity of primary successional communities are expected to limit diversity ...
