    • Four Centuries of Change in Northeastern United States Forests 

      Thompson, Jonathan R.; Carpenter, Dunbar N.; Cogbill, Charles V.; Foster, David R. (Public Library of Science, 2013)
      The northeastern United States is a predominately-forested region that, like most of the eastern U.S., has undergone a 400-year history of intense logging, land clearance for agriculture, and natural reforestation. This ...
    • Genetic Diversity in the Interference Selection Limit 

      Good, Benjamin H.; Walczak, Aleksandra M.; Neher, Richard A.; Desai, Michael M. (Public Library of Science, 2014)
      Pervasive natural selection can strongly influence observed patterns of genetic variation, but these effects remain poorly understood when multiple selected variants segregate in nearby regions of the genome. Classical ...
    • Integrating Stand and Soil Properties to Understand Foliar Nutrient Dynamics during Forest Succession Following Slash-and-Burn Agriculture in the Bolivian Amazon 

      Broadbent, Eben N.; Almeyda Zambrano, Angélica M.; Asner, Gregory P.; Soriano, Marlene; Field, Christopher B.; de Souza, Harrison Ramos; Peña-Claros, Marielos; Adams, Rachel I.; Dirzo, Rodolfo; Giles, Larry (Public Library of Science, 2014)
      Secondary forests cover large areas of the tropics and play an important role in the global carbon cycle. During secondary forest succession, simultaneous changes occur among stand structural attributes, soil properties, ...
    • Multiple Browsers Structure Tree Recruitment in Logged Temperate Forests 

      Faison, Edward K.; DeStefano, Stephen; Foster, David R.; Rapp, Joshua M.; Compton, Justin A. (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      Historical extirpations have resulted in depauperate large herbivore assemblages in many northern forests. In eastern North America, most forests are inhabited by a single wild ungulate species, white-tailed deer (Odocoileus ...
    • Testing the Efficacy of Global Biodiversity Hotspots for Insect Conservation: The Case of South African Katydids 

      Bazelet, Corinna S.; Thompson, Aileen C.; Naskrecki, Piotr (Public Library of Science, 2016)
      The use of endemism and vascular plants only for biodiversity hotspot delineation has long been contested. Few studies have focused on the efficacy of global biodiversity hotspots for the conservation of insects, an ...
