A meta-analysis of context-dependency in plant response to inoculation with mycorrhizal fungi.
Ecology Letters (2010) 13: 394-407 Abstract Mycorrhizal fungi influence plant growth, local biodiversity and ecosystem function. Effects of the symbiosis on plants span the continuum from mutualism… Expand
The dynamics of spatially coupled food webs.
The dynamics of ecological systems include a bewildering number of biotic interactions that unfold over a vast range of spatial scales. Here, employing simple and general empirical arguments… Expand

Abstract Climate change will likely alter the distribution and abundance of northern mammals through a combination of direct, abiotic effects (e.g., changes in temperature and precipitation) and… Expand
When and where plant-soil feedback may promote plant coexistence: a meta-analysis.
Plant-soil feedback (PSF) theory provides a powerful framework for understanding plant dynamics by integrating growth assays into predictions of whether soil communities stabilise plant-plant… Expand
Interactions among symbionts operate across scales to influence parasite epidemics.
Parasite epidemics may be influenced by interactions among symbionts, which can depend on past events at multiple spatial scales. Within host individuals, interactions can depend on the sequence in… Expand
From Lilliput to Brobdingnag: Extending Models of Mycorrhizal Function across Scales
ABSTRACT Mycorrhizae occur in nearly all terrestrial ecosystems. Resource exchange between host plants and mycorrhizal fungi influences community, ecosystem, and even global patterns and processes.… Expand

Plants form ubiquitous associations with diverse microbes. These interactions range from parasitism to mutualism, depending partly on resource supplies that are being altered by global change. While… Expand
Evolutionary history of plant hosts and fungal symbionts predicts the strength of mycorrhizal mutualism
Most plants engage in symbioses with mycorrhizal fungi in soils and net consequences for plants vary widely from mutualism to parasitism. However, we lack a synthetic understanding of the… Expand
Resource availability determines stability for mutualist–pathogen–host interactions
Traditional explorations of interspecific interactions have generated extensive bodies of theory on mutualism and disease independently, but few studies have considered the interaction between them.… Expand

We conducted a 93-day experiment investigating the independent and combined effects of acidification (280−3300 µatm pCO2) and warming (28°C and 31°C) on calcification and linear extension rates of… Expand
