Nonsynchronous Spatial Overlap of Lizards in Patchy Habitats
TLDR
The first observation may be related to the first in the following way: nonsynchronous spatial overlap could dictate relatively great resource overlap for species coinhabiting patchy or edge areas, requiring great differences between the species in prey size in addition to those in climatic habitat. Expand
Resource Partitioning in Ecological Communities
TLDR
To conclude with a list of questions appropriate for studies of resource partitioning, questions this article has related to the theory in a preliminary way. Expand
The Anolis Lizards of Bimini: Resource Partitioning in a Complex Fauna
TLDR
It is suggested that such small, non-dimorphic species are best suited for insinuation into complex faunas, whereas larger, dimorphic forms are best for the colonization of empty areas. Expand
Trophic Downgrading of Planet Earth
TLDR
This empirical work supports long-standing theory about the role of top-down forcing in ecosystems but also highlights the unanticipated impacts of trophic cascades on processes as diverse as the dynamics of disease, wildfire, carbon sequestration, invasive species, and biogeochemical cycles. Expand
Theory of Feeding Strategies
Natural history is replete with observations on feeding, yet only recently have investigators begun to treat feeding as a device whose performance­ as measured in net energy yield/feeding time orExpand
Field Experiments on Interspecific Competition
TLDR
Competition was found in 90% of the studies and 76% of their species, indicating its pervasive importance in ecological systems, and the Hairston-Slobodkin-Smith hypothesis concerning variation in the importance of competition between trophic levels was strongly supported. Expand
The Newest Synthesis: Understanding the Interplay of Evolutionary and Ecological Dynamics
TLDR
Only an extensive research effort involving multiple experimental approaches—particularly long-term field experiments—over a variety of ecological communities will provide the answer to the importance of the evolution-to-ecology pathway across systems. Expand
Sizes of Feeding Territories among Birds
TLDR
The smaller spatial needs for omnivorous and herbivorous birds of a given biomass and perhaps the greater patchiness of their food when compared to predators are used to explain the higher occurrence of gregarious nesting in the former group. Expand
THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN SEXUAL SIZE DIMORPHISM AND HABITAT USE IN GREATER ANTILLEAN ANOLIS LIZARDS
TLDR
The existence of habitat‐specific sexual dimorphism suggests that adaptation of Anolis species to their environment is more complex than previously appreciated. Expand
