CSPs: Herbivore damage on saplings of 23 tree and shrub species in the CSPs

Abstract:
This study was designed to quantify the degree of herbivore damage on saplings of different tree and shrub species in the 27 Comparative Study Plots. In June/July 2008, we selected 1,818 saplings (20-100 cm height) of 23 species and visually asses...

Functional and phylogenetic dissimilarity of woody plants drive insect herbivory in highly diverse forests

Abstract:
The degree of herbivore damage a plant species experiences has been shown to often be affected by the density of conspecific plant neighbors. However, host spectra of many herbivores often comprise a suite of related plant species, and generalist ...

Tree diversity promotes functional dissimilarity and maintains functional richness despite species loss in predator assemblages

The effects of species loss on ecosystems depend on the functional characteristics of the species, i.e. the functional diversity, in a community. However, how functional diversity is impacted by environmental changes in natural ecosystems is only ...

Tree diversity promotes predator but not omnivore ants in a subtropical Chinese forest

Abstract:
1. Epigeic ants are functionally important arthropods in tropical and subtropical forests, particularly by acting as predators. High predation pressure has been hypothesized to be a mechanism facilitating high diversity across trophic levels. 2. ...
