Food Webs and Container Habitats: The Natural History and Ecology of Phytotelmata
- R. Kitching
- 28 August 2000
This chapter discusses the construction and quantification of food webs, processes structuring fod webs in phytotelmata, and the role of the host plant in the container flora and environment. Expand
Reliable, verifiable and efficient monitoring of biodiversity via metabarcoding.
Compared with standard biodiversity data sets, metabarcoded samples are taxonomically more comprehensive, many times quicker to produce, less reliant on taxonomic expertise and auditable by third parties, which is essential for dispute resolution. Expand
Food webs: reconciling the structure and function of biodiversity.
- Ross Thompson, U. Brose, +8 authors J. Tylianakis
- Trends in ecology & evolution
- 1 December 2012
The progression of food-web ecology and the challenges in using the food- web approach are summarized and five areas of research are identified where advances can continue, and be applied to global challenges. Expand
Vertical stratification of arthropod assemblages.
An ecological study of water-filled tree-holes and their position in the woodland ecosystem.
- R. Kitching
- 1 June 1971
The subject was taken up by Thienemann, and, in 1934, he published a paper on the fauna of various tropical phytotelmata contrasting it with that known from similar water-bodies in the temperate zone. Expand
Moth assemblages as indicators of environmental quality in remnants of upland Australian rain forest
The results show how moth assemblages are powerful indicators of forest disturbance, and should prompt parallel studies elsewhere in the world. Expand
Arthropods of Tropical Forests: Spatio-Temporal Dynamics and Resource Use in the Canopy
ARTHROPODS OF TROPICAL FORESTS: SPATIO-TEMPORAL DYNAMICS AND RESOURCE USE IN THE CANOPY Y. Basset, V. Novotny, S.E. Miller and R.L. Kitching, eds. 2003. Cambridge University Press. ISBN 0-52182000-6… Expand
Arthropod Diversity in a Tropical Forest
This work sampled the phylogenetic breadth of arthropod taxa from the soil to the forest canopy in the San Lorenzo forest, Panama using a comprehensive range of structured protocols and found that models based on plant diversity fitted the accumulated species richness of both herbivore and nonherbivore taxa exceptionally well.

Productivity, disturbance and food web structure at a local spatial scale in experimental container habitats
We report the results of an experiment using water-filled container analogues of natural treeholes placed in a subtropical rainforest. The source of energy in both experimental and natural systems is… Expand
