Cannibalism in Natural Populations
Cannibalism, defined as intraspecific predation, is a behavioral trait found in a wide variety of animals, although most references to this behavior are anecdotal or based on casual laboratoryExpand

Specialization: species property or local phenomenon?
Many herbivorous insects have generalized diets over the species' entire geographical ranges but they function as specialists with restricted diets in local communities. Local feeding specializationExpand

Insect grazing on Eucalyptus in response to variation in leaf tannins and nitrogen
SummaryMany species of Eucalyptus, one of the dominant genera in Australian forests and woodlands, contain high levels of tannins and other phenols and are also heavily damaged by grazing insects.Expand

Defense and Dynamics in Plant-Herbivore Systems
Recent theory about interactions between plants and their herbivores focuses on properties of individual plants that affect their resistance to herbivores, and it extrapolates from these individualExpand

Factors Influencing Cannibalism, a Mechanism of Population Limitation in the Predator Notonecta hoffmanni
Factors influencing cannibalism rates in the freshwater insect predator Notonecta hoffmanni were analyzed in a series of field and laboratory experiments. Starvation was re- jected as a cause ofExpand

Effects of variation in Eucalyptus essential oil yield on insect growth and grazing damage
SummaryLevels of insect attack and yields of leaf essential oils in Eucalyptus vary widely within and among species. We tested the hypotheses that 1) metabolic cost of oil detoxification increasesExpand

Parasitism rates and sex ratios of a parasitoid wasp: effects of herbivore and plant quality
SummaryWe studied interactions among collards, Brassica oleracea var. acephala, the diamondback moth (DBM), Plutella xylostella (Lepidoptera: Yponomeutidae) and its parasitoid Diadegma insulareExpand

Diffuse coevolution within complex communities
The working model for interpreting revolutionary interactions has itself evolved over the past 10 yr. The original "stepwise" model included two species, each evolving primarily in response toExpand

Range-Expanding Populations of a Globally Introduced Weed Experience Negative Plant-Soil Feedbacks
Background Biological invasions are fundamentally biogeographic processes that occur over large spatial scales. Interactions with soil microbes can have strong impacts on plant invasions, but howExpand

Eucalypt responses to fertilization and reduced herbivory
SummaryWe manipulated soil fertility and insect attack for two species of Eucalyptus in natural stands of subalpine woodland on shallow, infertile granitic soils. E. pauciflora and E. stellulataExpand
