    • A cross-system synthesis of herbivore and nutrient resource control on producer biomass 

      Gruner, Daniel; Smith, Jennifer; Seabloom, Eric; Sandin, Stuart; Ngai, Jacqueline; Hillebrand, Helmut; Harpole, Stanley; Elser, James; Cleland, Elsa; Bracken, Matthew; Borer, Elizabeth; Bolker, Benjamin (2008-07)
      Nutrient availability and consumption by herbivores control the biomass of primary producer communities to varying degrees across ecosystems. Ecological theory, individual experiments in many different systems, and ...
    • Herbivore metabolism and stoichiometry each constrain herbivory at different organizational scales across ecosystems 

      Hillebrand, Helmut; Borer, Elizabeth; Bracken, Matthew; Cardinale, Brad; Cebrian, Just; Cleland, Elsa; Elser, James; Gruner, Daniel; Harpole, Stanley; Ngai, Jackie; Sandin, Stuart; Seabloom, Eric; Shurin, Jonathan; Smith, Jennifer; Smith, Melinda (Ecology Letters, 2009)
      Plant-herbivore interactions mediate the trophic structure of ecosystems. We use a comprehensive data set extracted from the literature to test the relative explanatory power of two contrasting bodies of ecological theory, ...
