Fire disturbance disrupts an acacia ant–plant mutualism in favor of a subordinate ant species
(Wiley and sons, 2017-03)
Although disturbance theory has been recognized as a useful framework in examining the stability of ant–plant mutualisms, very few studies have examined the effects of fire disturbance on these mutualisms. In myrmecophyt ...
Synergistic effects of fire and elephants on arboreal animals in an African savanna
(British Ecological Society, 2015)
Relationships Between Cattle and Biodiversity in Multiuse Landscape Revealed by Kenya Long-Term Exclosure Experiment
On rangelands worldwide, cattle interact with many forms of biodiversity, most obviously with vegetation and other large herbivores. Since 1995, we have been manipulating the presence of cattle, mesoherbivores, and ...
Tree resprout dynamics following fire depend on herbivory by wild ungulate herbivores
(Journal of Ecology, 2019-04)
1. Savanna tree cover is dynamic due to disturbances such as fire and herbivory. Frequent fires can limit a key demographic transition from sapling to adult height classes in savanna trees. Saplings may be caught in a ‘fire ...
Synergistic effects of long-term herbivory and previous fire on fine-scale heterogeneity of prescribed grassland burns
Grassland and savanna ecosystems, important for both livelihoods and biodiversity conservation, are strongly affected by ecosystem drivers such as herbivory, fire, and drought. Interactions among fire, herbivores and ...
