Impact of food and predation on the snowshoe hare cycle

  
Science, Vol. 269, No. 5227. (25 August 1995), pp. 1112-1115, https://doi.org/10.1126/science.269.5227.1112

Abstract

Snowshoe hare populations in the boreal forests of North America go through 10-year cycles. Supplemental food and mammalian predator abundance were manipulated in a factorial design on 1-square-kilometer areas for 8 years in the Yukon. Two blocks of forest were fertilized to test for nutrient effects. Predator exclosure doubled and food addition tripled hare density during the cyclic peak and decline. Predator exclosure combined with food addition increased density 11-fold. Added nutrients increased plant growth but not hare density. Food and ...

Phantoms of the forest: legacy risk effects of a regionally extinct large carnivore

  
Ecology and Evolution, Vol. 6, No. 3. (January 2016), pp. 791-799, https://doi.org/10.1002/ece3.1866

Abstract

The increased abundance of large carnivores in Europe is a conservation success, but the impact on the behavior and population dynamics of prey species is generally unknown. In Europe, the recolonization of large carnivores often occurs in areas where humans have greatly modified the landscape through forestry or agriculture. Currently, we poorly understand the effects of recolonizing large carnivores on extant prey species in anthropogenic landscapes. Here, we investigated if ungulate prey species showed innate responses to the scent of a ...

 

Evolutionary ecology of mast-seeding in temperate and tropical oaks (Quercus spp.)

  
Plant Ecology, Vol. 107-108, No. 1. (1 June 1993), pp. 133-147, https://doi.org/10.1007/bf00052217

Abstract

Mast-seeding is the synchronous production of large seed crops within a population or community of species every two or more years. This paper addresses three non-mutually exclusive hypotheses explaining the evolution of mast-seeding in temperate tree species, especially the genus Quercus: (1) mast-seeding is a consequence of mast-flowering which evolves to increased pollination efficiency in mast-flowering years; (2) mast-seeding has evolved as an anti-predator adaptation by which large seed crops during mast years satiate the seed predators and allow survival of ...

 

The roles of dispersal, fecundity, and predation in the population persistence of an oak (Quercus engelmannii) under global change

  
PLoS ONE, Vol. 7, No. 5. (18 May 2012), e36391, https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0036391

Abstract

A species’ response to climate change depends on the interaction of biotic and abiotic factors that define future habitat suitability and species’ ability to migrate or adapt. The interactive effects of processes such as fire, dispersal, and predation have not been thoroughly addressed in the climate change literature. Our objective was to examine how life history traits, short-term global change perturbations, and long-term climate change interact to affect the likely persistence of an oak species - Quercus engelmannii (Engelmann oak). Specifically, ...

 

Current trends in the evolutionary ecology of plant defence

  
Functional Ecology, Vol. 25, No. 2. (April 2011), pp. 420-432, https://doi.org/10.1111/j.1365-2435.2010.01796.x

Abstract

Summary 1. In this essay I summarize current trends in the evolutionary ecology of plant defence, while advocating for approaches that integrate community ecology with specific tests of classic evolutionary hypotheses. Several conclusions emerge. 2. The microevolution of defence is perhaps best studied by reciprocal transplant experiments of differentiated plant populations while simultaneously manipulating the presence of the herbivore(s) hypothesized to be the agent(s) of natural selection. 3. Although there is continued interest in the costs of defence, I argue that some empirical ...

 

Impact of vertebrate acorn- and seedling-predators on a Mediterranean Quercus pyrenaica forest

  
Forest Ecology and Management, Vol. 180, No. 1-3. (17 July 2003), pp. 125-134, https://doi.org/10.1016/s0378-1127(02)00608-4

Abstract

We have experimentally investigated the impact of biotic factors, acting at the seed and seedling stages, on a Quercus pyrenaica forest in the Sierra Nevada mountains (SE Spain). We monitored the natural establishment of the oak for 3 years in two forest plots and two shrubland plots, by counting seedlings and juveniles. In addition, we established several experiments in these plots to examine acorn and seedling survival, while also considering the microhabitat effect on survival probability. Dispersed acorns were quickly consumed ...

 

Small mammal abundance in Mediterranean post-fire habitats: a role for predators?

  
Acta Oecologica, Vol. 25, No. 3. (May 2004), pp. 137-142, https://doi.org/10.1016/j.actao.2003.10.007

Abstract

We studied patterns of small mammal abundance and species richness in post-fire habitats by sampling 33 plots (225 m2 each) representing different stages of vegetation recovery after fire. Small mammal abundance was estimated by live trapping during early spring 1999 and vegetation structure was sampled by visual estimation at the same plots. Recently–burnt areas were characterised by shrubby and herbaceous vegetation with low structural variability, and unburnt areas were characterised by well developed forest cover with high structural complexity. Small mammal abundance and ...
