Nutritional constraints in terrestrial and freshwater food webs
Biological and environmental contrasts between aquatic and terrestrial systems have hindered analyses of community and ecosystem structure across Earth's diverse habitats. Ecological stoichiometry… Expand
PLANT WATER STRESS AND ITS CONSEQUENCES FOR HERBIVOROUS INSECTS: A NEW SYNTHESIS
Traditionally, herbivorous insects are thought to exhibit enhanced performance and outbreak dynamics on water-stressed host plants due to induced changes in plant physiology. Recent experimental… Expand
Physiology and ecology of dispersal polymorphism in insects.
Studies of dispersal polymorphism in insects have played a pivotal role in advancing our understanding of population dynamics, life history evolution, and the physiological basis of adaptation.… Expand
Interspecific interactions in phytophagous insects : competition reexamined and resurrected
This review reevaluates the importance of interspecific competition in the population biology of phytophagous insects and assesses factors that mediate competition. An examination of 193 pair-wise… Expand
Interspecific interactions in phytophagous insects revisited: a quantitative assessment of competition theory.
The importance of interspecific competition is a highly controversial and unresolved issue for community ecology in general, and for phytophagous insects in particular. Recent advancements, however,… Expand
Nitrogen in Insects: Implications for Trophic Complexity and Species Diversification
Disparities in nutrient content (nitrogen and phosphorus) between herbivores and their plant resources have lately proven to have major consequences for herbivore success, consumer‐driven nutrient… Expand
POSITIVE PREDATOR–PREDATOR INTERACTIONS: ENHANCED PREDATION RATES AND SYNERGISTIC SUPPRESSION OF APHID POPULATIONS
Interactions among predators can a have substantial effect on the total impact of the predator complex. We investigated the interaction between foliar-foraging (Coccinella septempunctata) and… Expand
Responses of invertebrate natural enemies to complex-structured habitats: a meta-analytical synthesis
The structural complexity of habitats has been espoused as an important factor influencing natural-enemy abundance and food-web dynamics in invertebrate-based communities, but a rigorous synthesis of… Expand

A recent surge in attention devoted to the ecology of soil biota has prompted interest in quantifying similarities and differences between interactions occurring in above- and belowground… Expand
Physiological integration of roots and shoots in plant defense strategies links above- and belowground herbivory.

Roots play a critical, but largely unappreciated, role in aboveground anti-herbivore plant defense (e.g. resistance and tolerance) and root-leaf connections may therefore result in unexpected… Expand
