RESAMPLING METHODS FOR COMPUTATION-INTENSIVE DATA ANALYSIS IN ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTION
TLDR
This review focuses on four related techniques known in the statistical and biological literature as randomization (or permutation) tests, Monte Carlo methods, bootstrapping, and the jackknife, and concludes that resampling methods are well represented in ecology and evolution. Expand
Functional Responses and Interference within and between Year Classes of a Dragonfly Population
TLDR
The laboratory results suggest that the structural complexity and alternative prey present in a previous field study greatly reduced the rate of predation by Tc2 on Tc1 larvae but did not reduce the intensity of interference among T c2 predators. Expand
The Size-Efficiency Hypothesis and the Size Structure of Zooplankton Communities
TLDR
The size-efficiency hypothesis is an attempt to explain the commonly observed inverse relationship between the abundances of small and of large-bodied herbivorous zooplankton in freshwater lakes. Expand
Mate Density, Predation Risk, and the Seasonal Sequence of Mate Choices: A Dynamic Game
TLDR
A computer-simulation model of mate choice, featuring two different quality groups (based on offspring per mating) in each sex, finds the opportunity for selection for mate quality is highest at intermediate densities of predators and of potential mates. Expand
Behavior and Ecological Interactions of Larval Odonata
TLDR
The distribution of E. aspersum larvae may be limited by fish predation, but although competitive interactions were detected, there is no evidence that larval competition influences the distribution of either species. Expand
MULTIPLE STRESSORS AND SALAMANDERS: EFFECTS OF AN HERBICIDE, FOOD LIMITATION, AND HYDROPERIOD
TLDR
In general, food and atrazine levels did not interact statistically, andatrazine affected dependent variables in a standard, dose-dependent manner. Expand
DENSITY DEPENDENCE, HATCHING SYNCHRONY, AND WITHIN-COHORT CANNIBALISM IN YOUNG DRAGONFLY LARVAE'
TLDR
It is concluded that when juveniles hatch asynchronously in close proximity, cannibalism can contribute to population regulation by imposing greater per capita mortality at high densities, and increase population synchrony by exerting size-specific mortality on smaller individuals throughout development. Expand
Sexual size dimorphism and sex ratios in dragonflies (Odonata)
TLDR
Support for Rensch's rule is found in dragonflies (Odonata) by analysing body size of 21 species and the slope of the relationship between sex ratio and size ratio was negative, suggesting that the larger sex suffers from high mortality in the larval stage, consistent with riskier foraging. Expand
Dispersal and the Stability of Predator-Prey Interactions

  • The American Naturalist
  • 1 November 1981
TLDR
Neither spatial structure (texture) nor density-dependent dispersal are additionally required to obtain long-term persistence, and the critical problem of avoiding synchrony in a spatially contiguous, locally unstable system can apparently be solved by size alone. Expand
