Positive diversity-stability relationships in forest herb populations during four decades of community assembly.
It is suggested that diversity destabilizes individual populations within communities; however, generalizations are problematic because effects of diversity can be confounded by variationExpand

Persistence of a rare ancient cycad: Effects of environment and demography
Conservation of rare species is frequently complicated by their narrow niches and poor competitive abilities which limit their distribution to a few small populations. We studied how population sizeExpand

Seven decades of change in a European old-growth forest following a stand-replacing wind disturbance: A long-term case study
Abstract Understanding long-term successional changes in old growth forests affected by stand-replacing disturbance is particularly important in the context of contemporary changes in climate andExpand

Conservation potential of prescribed fire for maintaining habitats and populations of an endangered rattlesnake Sistrurus c. catenatus
Many endangered species rely on early successional habitats to complete parts of their life cycles. We examined whether prescribed fire can be used to aid in conservation of the endangered easternExpand

Modelling white-tailed deer impacts on forest regeneration to inform deer management options at landscape scales
Abstract Long-term continuity of forest cover in eastern North America may be threatened in part by white-tailed deer (Odocoileus virginianus), but effectively managing that threat requires greaterExpand

Spatial structure of traditional land organization allows long-term persistence of large Formica exsecta supercolony in actively managed agricultural landscape
Semi-natural linear habitats such as field and meadow margins are often crucial in maintaining insect diversity and species distributions in agricultural landscapes. While many ant species areExpand

A trait-based approach to the conservation of threatened plant species
Traditionally the vulnerability of threatened species to extinction has been assessed by studying their environment, genetics and population dynamics. A more comprehensive understanding of theExpand

Heterogeneity in millipede communities (Diplopoda) within a forest–forest edge–meadow habitat complex
Abstract The positive influence of heterogeneity in vegetation and land-use on animal diversity is generally well established, but it has not been conclusively confirmed yet in millipede communitiesExpand
