2012 journal article

When resources don't rescue: flowering phenology and species interactions affect compensation to herbivory in <i>Ipomopsis aggregata

Oikos, 121(9), 1424–1434.

TL;DR: The results demonstrate that the variability in plant response to herbivory can, at least in part, be driven by plant interactions with mutualists and enemies. (via Semantic Scholar)

2012 journal article

What you smell is more important than what you see? Natural selection on floral scent

New Phytologist, 195(3), 510–511.

TL;DR: The work presented in this issue of New Phytologist provides a significant step forward in the understanding of phenotypic selection on floral traits by showing that floral scent can be under stronger selection than more traditionally measured floral morphological traits, such as floral size and color.

Effects of abiotic factors and species interactions on estimates of male plant function: a meta‐analysis

Ecology Letters, 16(3), 399–408.

By: R. Schaeffer*, J. Manson* & R. Irwin*

Ed(s): J. Gurevitch

TL;DR: Meta-analysis finds significant effects of abiotic factors and species interactions on estimates of male function, with responses varying depending on environmental factor identity, suggesting that some male function estimates may fail to capture the effects of environmental factors on male fitness.

2012 journal article

Nectar alkaloids decrease pollination and female reproduction in a native plant

Oecologia, 168(4), 1033–1041.

author keywords: Floral evolution; Gelsemine; Nectar robbing; Pollination; Toxic nectar
MeSH headings : Alkaloids / analysis; Alkaloids / pharmacology; Analysis of Variance; Animals; Behavior, Animal / drug effects; Biological Evolution; Gelsemium / chemistry; Georgia; Insecta / drug effects; Plant Nectar / chemistry; Pollination / drug effects; Reproduction / drug effects; Sex Factors
TL;DR: This work suggests that nectar alkaloids are more costly than beneficial in the authors' system, and that relatively small-scale spatial variation in trait effects and interactions could determine the selective impacts of traits such as nectar composition. (via Semantic Scholar)

2012 journal article

Site fidelity and movement patterns of invasive lionfish, Pterois spp., in a Florida estuary

Journal of Experimental Marine Biology and Ecology, 414-415, 69–74.

By: Z. Jud* & C. Layman*

author keywords: Fish; Growth; Home range; Invasive species; Movement; Tagging
TL;DR: In systems where lionfish exhibit extremely high site fidelity and small maximum ranges, localized population control may be feasible, since lionfish removed from a given habitat would be replaced largely through larval recruitment rather than migration of older individuals, but may be less effective if lion fish exhibit greater movement and lower site fidelity in other invaded systems.

2012 journal article

Managing multiple vital rates to maximize greater sage-grouse population growth

JOURNAL OF WILDLIFE MANAGEMENT, 76(2), 336–347.

author keywords: Centrocercus urophasianus; demography; greater sage-grouse; life-stage simulation analysis; nest success; population growth; process variance; sagebrush; sensitivity; survival
TL;DR: Sensitivity analyses suggest that, in contrast to most other North American galliforms, female survival is as important for population growth as chick survival and more important than nest success. (via Semantic Scholar)

A Meta-Analysis of the Effects of Common Management Actions on the Nest Success of North American Birds

CONSERVATION BIOLOGY, 26(4), 657–666.

MeSH headings : Agriculture; Animals; Birds / parasitology; Birds / physiology; Conservation of Natural Resources / methods; Environment; Feeding Behavior; Fires; Food Chain; Reproduction
TL;DR: Comparison studies of bird management in Canada and the United States to evaluate the relative efficacy of 4 common management interventions and to determine variables associated with their success highlighted the importance of comparative studies on management effects in developing efficient and effective conservation strategies.

2012 journal article

How complex do models need to be to predict dispersal of threatened species through matrix habitats?

Ecological Applications, 22(5), 1701–1710.

By: B. Hudgens, W. Morris*, N. Haddad n, W. Fields n, J. Wilson n, D. Kuefler*, T. Jobe*

MeSH headings : Animals; Butterflies / physiology; Computer Simulation; Conservation of Energy Resources; Demography; Ecosystem; Endangered Species; Models, Biological; Movement; North Carolina
TL;DR: Although the gain in predicting dispersal with increasing model complexity was small, so was the increase in financial cost, and more complex models made substantially different predictions than simple models when applied to a novel landscape in which butterflies are to be reintroduced to bolster their populations, these results caution against a pure parsimony approach.

2012 journal article

Diversity of plant evolutionary lineages promotes arthropod diversity

ECOLOGY LETTERS, 15(11), 1308–1317.

author keywords: Abundance; arthropods; biodiversity experiments; community ecology; ecosystem function; phylogenetic diversity; trophic levels
MeSH headings : Animals; Arthropods; Biodiversity; Biological Evolution; Conservation of Natural Resources; Food Chain; Phylogeny; Plants
TL;DR: Drawing on 11 years of data from a long-term plant diversity experiment, it is shown that evolutionary history of plant communities - measured as phylogenetic diversity - strongly predicts diversity and abundance of herbivorous and predatory arthropods. (via Semantic Scholar)
