Fine scale spatial genetic structure in Pouteria reticulata (Engl.) Eyma (Sapotaceae), a dioecious, vertebrate dispersed tropical rain forest tree species
Abstract Dioecious tropical tree species often have small flowers and fleshy fruits indicative of small-insect pollination and vertebrate seed dispersal. We hypothesize that seed mediated gene flowExpand
Host plant phylogeny and abundance predict root‐associated fungal community composition and diversity of mutualists and pathogens
Interactions between plants and their root‐associated fungi (RAF) may influence the relative abundance of tree species and determine forest community diversity. Such plant–soil feedbacks in turnExpand
Host affinity of endophytic fungi and the potential for reciprocal interactions involving host secondary chemistry.
PREMISE Interactions between fungal endophytes and their host plants present useful systems for identifying important factors affecting assembly of host-associated microbiomes. Here we investigatedExpand
Mutualist and pathogen traits interact to affect plant community structure in a spatially explicit model
Empirical studies show that plant-soil feedbacks (PSF) can generate negative density dependent (NDD) recruitment capable of maintaining plant community diversity at landscape scales. However, theExpand
Comparison of methods for monitoring Mindarus abietinus (Homoptera: Aphididae) and their potential damage in Christmas tree plantations.
The balsam twig aphid, Mindarus abietinus Koch, causes distortion, loss, or both, of needles on balsam fir Christmas trees. Insecticides are often applied for control of twig aphids with littleExpand
