When can herbivores reverse the spread of an invading plant? A test case from Mount St. Helens
(American Naturalist, 2005)
Here we study the spatial dynamics of a coinvading consumerresource pair. We present a theoretical treatment with extensive empirical data from a longstudied field system in which native herbivorous insects attack a ...
Trophic interactions during primary succession: Herbivores slow the reinvasion of lupines on Mount St. Helens
(American Naturalist, 2000)
Lupines (Lupinus lepidus var. lobbii), the earliest plant colonists of primary successional habitats at Mount St. Helens, were expected to strongly affect successional trajectories through facilitative effects. However, ...
Successional Change in Phosphorus Stoichiometry Explains the Inverse Relationship between Herbivory and Lupin Density on Mount St. Helens
(PLoS One, 2009)
The average nitrogen-to-phosphorus ratio (N?P) of insect herbivores is less than that of leaves, suggesting that P may mediate plant-insect interactions more often than appreciated. We investigated whether succession-related ...
