Wetland Animal Ecology
(University of California Press, 2016)
Reinforcing abiotic and biotic time constraints facilitate the broad distribution of a generalist with fixed traits
(Ecological Society of America, 2009-06-16)
Abstract. Many species are habitat specialists along environmental gradients as a result of contrasting selection pressures, but others maintain broad distributions along such gradients. Phenotypic plasticity explains the ...
Effects of larval energetic resources on life history and adult allocation patterns in a caddisfly (Trichoptera: Phryganeidae)
(The Royal Entomological Society, 2007-07-20)
1. How populations respond to environmental change depends, in part, on the connection between environmental variance during early life stages and its effect on subsequent life-history traits. For example, environmental ...
Caddisfly life histories along permanence gradients in high-altitude wetlands in Colorado (U.S.A.)
1. Larvae of cased caddisflies (Limnephilidae and Phryganeidae) are among the most abundant and conspicuous invertebrates in northern wetlands. Although species replacements are often observed along permanence gradients, ...
The role of larval cases in reducing aggression and cannibalism among caddisflies in temporary wetlands
Larvae of wetland caddisflies supplement their detrital diets with animal material. In some species this supplement is obtained by preying on other caddisflies. In this study, we conducted a series of laboratory experiments ...
Foraging trade-offs along a predator-permanence gradient in subalpine wetlands
(Ecological Society of America, 1999-09)
We conducted a series of field and laboratory experiments to determine the direct and indirect effects of a top predator, the tiger salamander (Ambystoma tigrinum nebulosum), on larvae of two species of limnephilid caddisflies ...
