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 ...
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 ...
