  • An ever-increasing proportion of the global forested landscape is in close proximity to edges and edge effects have been shown to represent key forces affecting both organisms and ecological processes. Despite increasing recognition of edge effects on species interactions, a systematic review devoted to plant- herbivore interactions along forest edges has not yet been performed. Here we syn- thesize published research attempting to detect patterns of herbivore densities and herbivory at forest… CONTINUE READING
