2018 journal article

Variation in photosynthesis and stomatal conductance among red maple (Acer rubrum) urban planted cultivars and wildtype trees in the southeastern United States

PLOS ONE, 13(5).

By: E. Lahr n, R. Dunn n & S. Frank n

Contributors: E. Lahr n, R. Dunn n & S. Frank n

author keywords: breeding bird assemblages; evolutionary distinctiveness; functional diversity; phylogenetic diversity; traits; urbanization
TL;DR: The effects of urbanization on phylogenetic and functional diversity of natural communities through a variety of processes including habitat loss and the introduction of non‐native species are studied primarily using “space‐for‐time” substitution. (via Semantic Scholar)

The ecosystem services of animal microbiomes

MOLECULAR ECOLOGY, 27(8), 2164–2172.

author keywords: ecosystem services; host-microbiome; microbial ecology; microbiome
MeSH headings : Biological Evolution; Ecology; Ecosystem; Host Microbial Interactions / genetics; Microbiota / genetics
TL;DR: It is argued that ecosystem services are a useful framework with which to consider the value of microbes to their hosts, providing a context from which to develop new hypotheses and to evaluate microbial functions in future studies and novel systems. (via Semantic Scholar)

2018 review

Biodiversity and socioeconomics in the city: a review of the luxury effect

[Review of ]. BIOLOGY LETTERS, 14(5).

By: M. Leong*, R. Dunn n & M. Trautwein*

Contributors: M. Leong*, R. Dunn n & M. Trautwein*

author keywords: luxury effect; biodiversity; socioeconomics; urban ecology
MeSH headings : Animals; Biodiversity; Cities; Ecosystem; Humans; Plants; Socioeconomic Factors
TL;DR: The ecological dynamics of cities are influenced not only by geophysical and biological factors, but also by aspects of human society, and a pattern of higher biodiversity in affluent neighbourhoods has been termed ‘the luxury effect'. (via Semantic Scholar)

The ecology of insect–yeast relationships and its relevance to human industry

Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences, 285(1875), 20172733.

By: A. Madden n, M. Epps*, T. Fukami*, R. Irwin n, J. Sheppard n, D. Sorger n, R. Dunn n

Contributors: A. Madden n, M. Epps*, T. Fukami*, R. Irwin n, J. Sheppard n, D. Sorger n, R. Dunn n

author keywords: diffuse mutualism; dispersal; Ascomycota
MeSH headings : Animals; Ascomycota / physiology; Biological Evolution; Ecosystem; Food Industry; Humans; Insecta / microbiology; Plant Nectar / metabolism; Symbiosis
TL;DR: This work proposes a ‘dispersal–encounter hypothesis' whereby yeasts are dispersed by insects between ephemeral, spatially disparate sugar resources, and insects, in turn, obtain the benefits of an honest signal from yeasts for the sugar resources. (via Semantic Scholar)

Homogenizing an urban habitat mosaic: arthropod diversity declines in New York City parks after Super Storm Sandy

ECOLOGICAL APPLICATIONS, 28(1), 225–236.

By: A. Savage*, E. Youngsteadt n, A. Ernst*, S. Powers*, R. Dunn n & S. Frank n

Contributors: A. Savage*, E. Youngsteadt n, A. Ernst*, S. Powers*, R. Dunn n & S. Frank n

author keywords: biotic homogenization; disturbance adapted; diversity; extreme weather; hurricane; New York City; Super Storm Sandy; tipping point; urban ecology
MeSH headings : Animals; Arthropods; Biodiversity; Cyclonic Storms; New York City; Parks, Recreational; Stress, Physiological; Urbanization
TL;DR: The results suggest that the species that survive in high stress environments are likely to be the ones that thrive in response to acute disturbance, which may lead to diversity loss in cities, potentially leading entire urban landscapes to mirror the reduced diversity of street medians.

ECOLOGY AND EVOLUTION, 8(5), 2534–2541.

Contributors: D. Beasley n, C. Penick n, N. Boateng n, H. Menninger* & R. Dunn n

author keywords: Bergmann's rule; citizen science; fluctuating asymmetry; geometric morphometrics; periodical cicada; urban ecology
TL;DR: This is the first evidence that urbanization disrupts biogeographical trends in body size, and this pattern highlights how the effects of urbanization may differ over a species’ range. (via Semantic Scholar)
