Mechanisms of spatial competition in marine soft-bottom communities
TLDR
A general mechanism by which dense assemblages of tube-builders and seagrasses may restrict older and larger burrowing organisms is suggested. Expand
Predator detection and avoidance: Ornamentation of tube-caps of Diopatra spp. (Polychaeta: Onuphidae)
TLDR
An investigation of the function of the ornamentation in Diopatra spp. Expand
COMPETITIVE DISPLACEMENT OF NATIVE MUD SNAILS BY INTRODUCED PERIWINKLES IN THE NEW ENGLAND INTERTIDAL ZONE.
TLDR
The results suggest that the historical change in the distribution of Ilyanassa was due to competitive exclusion by introduced Littorina, a species which displays reciprocal niche overlap with each possessing an exclusive region from which the other is physically restricted. Expand
Community Matrix Models: Inconsistent Results Using Vandermeer's Data
TLDR
This chapter discusses the defensive behaviour of some orthopteroid insects from Panama and flight behavior and avoidance of predators in Thomson's gazelle. Expand
Tube‐cap orientations of Diopatra cuprea (Bosc) (Polychaeta): The compromise between physiology and foraging
Diopatra cuprea orients an extension of its tube in response to complex stimuli from the physical and biological environment. The stimuli of unidirectional current flow in laboratory experimentsExpand
A Reply to Thomas and Pomerantz with a Note on Diffuse Competition
TLDR
Vandermeer's data are contrary to diffuse competition as it has been generally interpreted for exploitative competitors, but it is argued that these data provide evidence for an important property of diffuse competition, but whether the deviation reflects higher order interactions cannot be determined. Expand
Post-mortem transport and population longevity recorded in scolecodont death assemblages
TLDR
Size distributions of jaws of these two nereids are consistent with patterns of predation by the nemertean Paranemertes peregrina, but the patterns are confounded in sheltered sites, probably as a result of post-mortem transport, by numerous small fragments. Expand
