Mechanistic understanding of consumer-resource dynamics is critical to predicting the effects of global change on ecosystem structure, function and services. Such understanding is severely limited by mechanistic models' inability to reproduce the dynamics of multiple populations interacting in the field. We surpass this limitation here by extending general(More)

Organisms eating each other are only one of many types of well documented and important interactions among species. Other such types include habitat modification, predator interference and facilitation. However, ecological network research has been typically limited to either pure food webs or to networks of only a few (<3) interaction types. The great(More)
Climate change and land-use change are two major drivers of biome shifts causing habitat and biodiversity loss. What is missing is a continental-scale future projection of the estimated relative impacts of both drivers on biome shifts over the course of this century. Here, we provide such a projection for the biodiverse region of Latin America under four(More)
Fishing is widely known to magnify fluctuations in targeted populations. These fluctuations are correlated with population shifts towards young, small, and more quickly maturing individuals. However, the existence and nature of the mechanistic basis for these correlations and their potential ecosystem impacts remain highly uncertain. Here, we elucidate this(More)
Graphical passwords [Suo et al. 2005] address vital problems of textual passwords: Users pick from a limited vocabulary; machine-generated passwords are hard to memorize. Graphical input, however, faces "shoulder surfing," as bystanders can watch the screen. Current solutions to this problem tend to impose high cognitive loads. We propose an easy-to-handle(More)
In the ‘Fish life-histories and population dynamics’ section of this Article the authors erroneously cited a personal communication with R. Eckmann. Dr. Eckmann did not provide any information about perch hatchery and the applied values for whitefish hatchery were modified from raw hatchery larvae records provided by him. The authors apologise for this(More)
