Error Cascades in the Biological Sciences: The Unwanted Consequences of Using Bad Taxonomy in Ecology
Abstract Why do ecologists seem to underestimate the consequences of using bad taxonomy? Is it because the consequences of doing so have not been yet scrutinized well enough? Is it because theseExpand

Underestimation of Spartina productivity in western Atlantic marshes: marsh invertebrates eat more than just detritus
Quantifying primary productivity and understanding the factors that control plant growth are primary goals of ecosystem ecology. Although some methods have been very successful in providing accurateExpand
