Festa-Bianchet, Marco, and Steeve D. Côtéé. 2008. Mountain goats: ecology, behavior, and conservation of an alpine ungulate. Island Press, Washington, D.C. xii ++ 265 p. $90.00 (cloth), ISBN: 978-1-59726-170-8 (alk. paper); $45.00 (paper), ISBN: 978-1-59726-171-5 (alk. paper).
Urbanization can have profound effects on the plant communities persisting in remnant habitats. That process can be explored by examining patterns of nestedness. Species composition for a set of communities exhibits a nested pattern if species present in progressively richer assemblages form a...
Gentry, Bradford S., Quint Newcomer, Shimon C. Anisfeld, and Michael A. Fotos III, editors. 2007. Emerging markets for ecosystem services: a case study of the Panama Canal Watershed. The Haworth Press, Binghamton, New York. xxi ++ 387 p. $148.00, ISBN: 978-1-56022-173-9 (alk. paper).
Offspring size is strikingly variable within species. Although theory can account for variation in offspring size among mothers, an adaptive explanation for variation within individual broods has proved elusive. Theoretical considerations of this problem assume that producing offspring that are...
The cost of reproduction can generate covariation between demographic rates that can potentially influence demography and population dynamics in long-lived iteroparous species. However, there has been relatively little work linking the survival cost of reproduction and population dynamics. The...
Predator effects on prey dynamics are conventionally studied by measuring changes in prey abundance attributed to consumption by predators. We revisit four classic examples of predator––prey systems often cited in textbooks and incorporate subsequent studies of nonconsumptive effects of...
Attached algae play a minor role in conceptual and empirical models of lake ecosystem function but paradoxically form the energetic base of food webs that support a wide variety of fishes. To explore the apparent mismatch between perceived limits on contributions of periphyton to whole-lake...
An evaluation of the link between climate and population dynamics requires understanding of climate effects both within and across generations. In ectothermic vertebrates, demographic responses to climate changes should crucially depend on balancing needs for heat and water. Here, we studied how...
Darwin's meticulous observations on the function of floral shape led to his famous prediction of a long-tongued pollinator, which he believed to be the evolutionary trigger for the long-spurred flowers of the Madagascar star orchid. Although tubular flowers are common, long tubes or spurs are an...
