INCORPORATING THE SOIL COMMUNITY INTO PLANT POPULATION DYNAMICS : THE UTILITY OF THE FEEDBACK APPROACH
1 Although its importance for plant mineral nutrition and nutrient cycling has long been recognized, the soil community has rarely been integrated into dynamical frameworks of plant populations, inExpand

Host-Dependent Sporulation and Species Diversity of Arbuscular Mycorrhizal Fungi in a Mown Grassland
1 In laboratory microcosm experiments, co-occurring plant species were found to support very different rates of sporulation of arbuscular mycorrhizal (AM) fungi. These differences were not affectedExpand

Social Organization and Parasite Risk in Mammals: Integrating Theory and Empirical Studies
▪ Abstract Mammals are exposed to a diverse array of parasites and infectious diseases, many of which affect host survival and reproduction. Species that live in dense populations, large socialExpand

SEXUALLY TRANSMITTED DISEASES IN ANIMALS: ECOLOGICAL AND EVOLUTIONARY IMPLICATIONS
Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) have been generally thought of as a small subset of infectious diseases, rather than as an important group of diseases that occur in numerous species. In thisExpand

Evolution in closely adjacent plant populations
SummaryThe evolution of reproductive isolation along a cline was investigated using a computer simulation of 10 linearly arranged populations connected by gene flow and subjected to selection whichExpand

Species Coexistence and Pathogens with Frequency‐Dependent Transmission
Pathogens that infect multiple hosts are commonly transmitted by vectors, and their transmission rate is often thought to depend on the proportion of hosts or vectors infected (i.e., frequencyExpand

Promiscuity and the primate immune system.
The behavioral and ecological factors involved in immune system evolution remain poorly explored. We present a phylogenetic analysis of white blood cell counts in primates to test three hypothesesExpand

Plant life-history and disease susceptibility - the occurrence of Ustilago violacea on different species within the Caryophyllaceae
Simple models of host-pathogen systems suggest that the ranges of potential hosts for pathogens with no transmission across generations and no free-living stages are likely to be restricted toExpand
