The Effect of Consumers and Mutualists of Vaccinium membranaceum at Mount St. Helens: Dependence on Successional Context
(PLoS One, 2011)
In contrast to secondary succession, studies of terrestrial primary succession largely ignore the role of biotic interactions, other than plant facilitation and competition, despite the expectation that simplified interaction ...
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 ...
