Granivory in the Chihuahuan Desert : interactions within and between trophic levels
We investigated the effects of Chihuahuan Desert granivores on three seasonal classes of plant resource species, the effects of these resource classes on one another, and the way in whichExpand

Old‐Field Succession on a Minnesota Sand Plain
Vegetation and soils were sampled in 22 old fields ranging in age from 1 to 56 yr since abandonment. Soil nitrogen concentration increased significantly with field age. Vegetation cover, totalExpand

Pocket gophers (Geomys bursarius), vegetation, and soil nitrogen along a successional sere in east central Minnesota
SummaryPocket gophers (Geomys bursarius: Geomyidae Rodentia) are shown to affect soil resources and thus, indirectly, vegetation. Gophers reduce average soil nitrogen near the surface and increaseExpand

Distribution of carbon and nitrogen in sagebrush steppe after six years of nitrogen addition and shrub removal
Abstract Widespread loss of sagebrush (Artemisia tridentata) in much of the western US represents a major shift in the dominant species type and may trigger changes in ecosystem characteristics suchExpand

Effects of shrub removal and nitrogen addition on soil moisture in sagebrush steppe
Abstract I monitored soil moisture profiles in sagebrush steppe in SE Idaho, USA, for 6 years, a period that included four consecutive years of drought. Recharge of soil moisture was primarily theExpand

EFFECTS OF PREDATION AND COMPETITION ON SURVIVORSHIP, FECUNDITY, AND COMMUNITY STRUCTURE OF DESERT ANNUALS'
Effects of rodent and ant granivores, watering, and thinning were studied in a diverse community of winter annuals in the Sonoran Desert. Seed predation considerably reduced plant densities, but antsExpand

NEIGHBORHOOD ANALYSES OF SMALL‐MAMMAL DYNAMICS: IMPACTS ON SEED PREDATION AND SEEDLING ESTABLISHMENT
The spatial distribution of canopy trees in the temperate deciduous forests of the northeastern United States creates "neighborhoods" that vary in species composition as well as understory features.Expand

The distribution of stable cesium in soils and plants of the eastern Snake River Plain in southern Idaho
Radiocesium has been introduced into ecosystems via nuclear technology activities. The distribution of stable cesium, 133Cs, is a long-term indicator of radiocesium movement in ecosystems. PlantExpand

Convergence and divergence of old-field vegetation after 11 yr of nitrogen addition
Eleven years of data from experimental nitrogen gradients in three old fields and in native savanna are used to test the hypothesis that similarity of resource availability should influenceExpand
