The relative importance of plant facilitation and competition during primary succession depends on the development of ecosystem nutrient pools, yet the interaction of these processes remains poorly understood. To explore how these mechanisms interact to drive successional dynamics, we devised a...
Forest Succession and Nutritional Carrying Capacity of Elk since the 1980 Eruption of Mount St. HelensDownload
There has been increasing concern over declines in habitat quality for elk (Cervus elaphus) on industrial timber lands west of Mount St. Helens due to canopy closure and the loss of nutritional resources related to succession of early seral stands created by the 1980 eruption. Vegetative...
Observations on Mount St Helens indicate that the spread of recolonizing lupin plants has been slowed due to the presence of insect herbivores and it is possible that the spread of lupins could be reversed in the future by intense insect herbivory [Fagan, W. F. and J. Bishop (2000). Trophic...
