The free Lie ring and Lie representations of the full linear group
Introduction. The present paper is a continuation and amplification of R. M. Thrall's paper On symmetrized Kronecker powers and the structure of the free Lie ring [7 ]J(1), which we shall denote asExpand
Phylogeny and provenance affect plant-soil feedbacks in invaded California grasslands.
Plant-soil feedbacks can affect plant community dynamics by influencing processes of coexistence or invasion, or by maintaining alternate stable states. Darwin's naturalization hypothesis suggestsExpand
Soil heterogeneity generated by plant–soil feedbacks has implications for species recruitment and coexistence
Summary Most studies of soil heterogeneity have focused on underlying abiotic factors such as soil nutrients. However, increasing recognition of plant–soil feedback (PSF) effects on plant growth,Expand
Heterogeneity in plant–soil feedbacks and resident population dynamics affect mutual invasibility
Summary 1. Understanding the mechanisms governing coexistence is a central goal in ecology and has implications for conserving and restoring communities, yet the high diversity in many plantExpand
When do plant radiations influence community assembly? The importance of historical contingency in the race for niche space.
Plant radiations are widespread but their influence on community assembly has rarely been investigated. Theory and some evidence suggest that radiations can allow lineages to monopolize niche spaceExpand
Seed and establishment limitation contribute to long-term native forb declines in California grasslands.
The effects of exotic species invasions on biodiversity vary with spatial scale, and documentation of local-scale changes in biodiversity following invasion is generally lacking. Coupling long-termExpand
Taxonomy and phylogenetics of the Synalpheus paraneptunus-species-complex (Decapoda: Alpheidae), with a description of two new species
The species-complex of Synalpheus paraneptunusCoutiere, 1909 is one of the most behaviorally and sexually diverse groups of sponge-dwelling shrimp in Synalpheus, containing both eusocial andExpand
Nitrogen alters effects of disturbance on annual grassland community diversity: Implications for restoration
In an era of anthropogenically altered disturbance regimes and increased nutrient loads, understanding how communities respond to these perturbations is essential for successful habitat restoration.Expand
Sphaeromatidae (Crustacea, Isopoda) of the Beagle Channel and description of Cymodopsis beageli n. sp
During an expedition with RV Victor Hensen (1994) and the RV Polarstern (1996) Isopoda Sphaeromatidae were collected in and off the eastern entrance of the Beagle Channel. The species found,Expand
Spatial heterogeneity of plant–soil feedbacks increases per capita reproductive biomass of species at an establishment disadvantage
Plant–soil feedbacks have been widely implicated as a driver of plant community diversity, and the coexistence prediction generated by a negative plant–soil feedback can be tested using the mutualExpand
