A cross-ecosystem comparison of the strength of trophic cascades
Although trophic cascades (indirect effects of predators on plants via herbivores) occur in a wide variety of food webs, the magnitudes of their effects are often quite variable. We compared theExpand

MOSAIC PATTERNS OF THERMAL STRESS IN THE ROCKY INTERTIDAL ZONE: IMPLICATIONS FOR CLIMATE CHANGE
We explicitly quantified spatial and temporal patterns in the body temperature of an ecologically important species of intertidal invertebrate, the mussel Mytilus californianus, along the majority ofExpand

WHAT DETERMINES THE STRENGTH OF A TROPHIC CASCADE
Trophic cascades have been documented in a diversity of ecological systems and can be important in determining biomass distribution within a community. To date, the literature on trophic cascades hasExpand

Geographic variation of southeastern Pacific intertidal communities
We conducted field surveys of rocky intertidal communities at 18 sites distributed between 29°S and 36°S on the coast of central Chile in order to document broad patterns of functional and trophicExpand

Scales of benthic-pelagic coupling and the intensity of species interactions: from recruitment limitation to top-down control.
Large and usually unpredictable variation in species interaction strength has been a major roadblock to applying local experimental results to large-scale management and conservation issues. RecentExpand

Interhemispheric comparison of recruitment to intertidal communities: pattern persistence and scales of variation.
Recruitment variation can be a major source of fluctuation in populations and communities, making it difficult to generalize results. Determining the scales of variation and whether spatial patternsExpand

Predator–prey interactions under climate change: the importance of habitat vs body temperature
Habitat temperature is often assumed to serve as an effective proxy for organism body temperature when making predictions of species distributions under future climate change. However, theExpand

Recruitment of intertidal invertebrates and oceanographic variability at Santa Cruz Island, California
To examine geographical variation in oceanographic forcing on larval delivery, we studied spatial and temporal variability in larval recruitment of mussels and barnacles in a key oceanographic regionExpand

Organismal climatology: analyzing environmental variability at scales relevant to physiological stress
SUMMARY Predicting when, where and with what magnitude climate change is likely to affect the fitness, abundance and distribution of organisms and the functioning of ecosystems has emerged as a highExpand

Species-specific responses to ocean acidification should account for local adaptation and adaptive plasticity
Global stressors, such as ocean acidification, constitute a rapidly emerging and significant problem for marine organisms, ecosystem functioning and services. The coastal ecosystems of the HumboldtExpand
