Ecology: Individuals, Populations and Communities
TLDR
This new edition contains two new chapters both of which consider areas of applied ecology which are relevant to contemporary global issues, and considers the control of abundance. Expand
Ecology: From Individuals to Ecosystems
TLDR
The nature of predation, the influence of population interactions on community structure, and Ecological applications at the level of communities and ecosystems are examined. Expand
Species traits in relation to a habitat templet for river systems
SUMMARY 1 This paper focuses on the premise that the habitat provides the templet upon which evolution forges characteristic species traits. Alternative hypotheses are that there are historic andExpand
Organic matter breakdown and ecosystem metabolism: functional indicators for assessing river ecosystem health
Abstract River health monitoring traditionally has made use of structural measurements (water quality or taxonomic composition of aquatic organisms). We argue that a more complete assessment of riverExpand
The Patch Dynamics Concept of Stream Community Ecology

TLDR
It is argued that streams conform reasonably closely to the patch dynamics explanation of community organization which emphasizes temporal phenomena and focusses on the importance of history and chance. Expand
Multiple stressors in agricultural streams: interactions among sediment addition, nutrient enrichment and water abstraction
Summary 1. Many ecosystems are influenced simultaneously by multiple stressors, and the consequences of stressors are often unpredictable on the basis of knowledge of single effects. AgricultureExpand
A truce with neutral theory: local deterministic factors, species traits and dispersal limitation together determine patterns of diversity in stream invertebrates.
TLDR
Assemblages of species with low and moderate dispersal ability were best predicted by combined models, including distance between sites and local ecological factors, and the perceived dichotomy between neutral and local environmental processes in determining local patterns of diversity may not be useful.

FLOOD DISTURBANCE REGIMES INFLUENCE RAINBOW TROUT INVASION SUCCESS AMONG FIVE HOLARCTIC REGIONS
TLDR
This work evaluated the hypothesis that, among regions with suitable water temperatures, environmental resistance from flood disturbances that wash away trout fry strongly influence invasion success of rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss), the most widely introduced fish species. Expand
