      Tredennick, Andrew T.; Adler, Peter B.; Grace, James B.; Harpole, W. Stanley; Borer, Elizabeth T.; Seabloom, Eric W.; Anderson, T. Michael; Bakker, Jonathan D.; Biederman, Lori A.; Brown, Cynthia S.; Buckley, Yvonne M.; Chu, Chengjin; Collins, Scott L.; Crawley, Michael J.; Fay, Philip A.; Firn, Jennifer; Gruner, Daniel S.; Hagenah, Nicole; Hautier, Yann; Hector, Andy; Hillebrand, Helmut; Kirkman, Kevin; Knops, Johannes M. H.; Laungani, Ramesh; Lind, Eric M.; MacDougall, Andrew S.; McCulley, Rebecca L.; Mitchell, Charles E.; Moore, Joslin L.; Morgan, John W.; Orrock, John L.; Peri, Pablo Luis; Prober, Suzanne M.; Risch, Anita C.; Schütz, Martin; Speziale, Karina L.; Standish, Rachel J.; Sullivan, Lauren L.; Wardle, Glenda M.; Williams, Ryan J.; Yang, Louie H. (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2016-01-29)
      Fraser et al. (Reports, 17 July 2015, p. 302) report a unimodal relationship between productivity and species richness at regional and global scales, which they contrast with the results of Adler et al. (Reports, 23 September ...
    • Dominant native and non‐native graminoids differ in key leaf traits irrespective of nutrient availability 

      Broadbent, Arthur A.D.; Firn, Jennifer L.; McGree, James M.; Borer, Elizabeth T.; Buckley, Yvonne M.; Harpole, William Stanley; Komatsu, Kimberly J.; MacDougall, Andrew S., Andrew S.; Orwin, Kate H.; Ostle, Nicholas J.; Seabloom, Eric William; Bakker, Jonathan D.; Biederman, Lori; Caldeira, Maria C.; Eisenhauer, Nico; Hagenah, Nicole; Hautier, Yann; Moore, Joslin L.; Nogueira, Carla; Peri, Pablo Luis; Risch, Anita C.; Roscher, Christiane; Schütz, Martin; Stevens, Carly J. (Wiley, 2020-03-12)
      Nutrient enrichment is associated with plant invasions and biodiversity loss. Functional trait advantages may predict the ascendancy of invasive plants following nutrient enrichment but this is rarely tested. Here, we ...
    • Herbivores safeguard plant diversity by reducing variability in dominance 

      Mortensen, Brent; Danielson, Brent; Harpole, William Stanley; Alberti, Juan; Arnillas, Carlos Alberto; Biederman, Lori; Borer, Elizabeth T.; Cadotte, Marc William; Dwyer, John Matthew; Hagenah, Nicole; Hautier, Yann; Peri, Pablo Luis; Seabloom, Eric William (2018-01)
      Reductions in community evenness can lead to local extinctions as dominant species exclude subordinate species; however, herbivores can prevent competitive exclusion by consuming otherwise dominant plant species, thus ...
    • Leaf nutrients, not specific leaf area, are consistent indicators of elevated nutrient inputs 

      Firn, Jennifer L.; McGree, James M.; Harvey, Eric; Flores-Moreno, Habacuc; Schütz, Martin; Buckley, Yvonne M.; Borer, Elizabeth T.; Seabloom, Eric William; La Pierre, Kimberly J.; MacDougall, Andrew S.; Prober, Suzanne M.; Stevens, Carly J.; Sullivan, Lauren L.; Porter, Erica; Ladouceur, Emma; Allen, Charlotte; Moromizato, Karine H.; Morgan, John W.; Harpole, William Stanley; Hautier, Yann; Eisenhauer, Nico; Wright, Justin P.; Adler, Peter B.; Arnillas, Carlos Alberto; Bakker, Jonathan D.; Biederman, Lori; Broadbent, Arthur A.D.; Brown, Cynthia S.; Bugalho, Miguel N.; Caldeira, Maria C.; Cleland, Elsa E.; Ebeling, Anne; Fay, Philip A.; Hagenah, Nicole; Kleinhesselink, Andrew R.; Mitchell, Rachel; Moore, Joslin L.; Nogueira, Carla; Peri, Pablo Luis; Roscher, Christiane; Smith, Melinda D.; Wragg, Peter D.; Risch, Anita C. (Nature Research, 2019)
      Leaf traits are frequently measured in ecology to provide a ‘common currency’ for predicting how anthropogenic pressures impact ecosystem function. Here, we test whether leaf traits consistently respond to experimental ...
    • Nutrient availability controls the impact of mammalian herbivores on soil carbon and nitrogen pools in grasslands 

      Sitters, Judith; Wubs, E.R. Jasper; Bakker, Elisabeth S.; Crowther, Thomas W.; Adler, Peter B.; Bagchi, Sumanta; Bakker, Jonathan D.; Biederman, Lori; Borer, Elizabeth T.; Cleland, Elsa E.; Eisenhauer, Nico; Firn, Jennifer L.; Gherardi, Laureano A.; Hagenah, Nicole; Hautier, Yann; Hobbie, Sarah E.; Knops, Johannes M.H.; MacDougall, Andrew S.; McCulley, Rebecca L.; Moore, Joslin L.; Mortensen, Brent; Peri, Pablo Luis; Prober, Suzanne M.; Riggs, Charlotte E.; Risch, Anita C.; Schütz, Martin; Seabloom, Eric William; Siebert, Julia; Stevens, Carly J.; Veen, G.F. (Ciska) (Wiley, 2020-02)
      Grasslands are subject to considerable alteration due to human activities globally, including widespread changes in populations and composition of large mammalian herbivores and elevated supply of nutrients. Grassland soils ...
    • Sensitivity of global soil carbon stocks to combined nutrient enrichment 

      Crowther, Thomas W.; Riggs, Charlotte E.; Lind, Eric M.; Borer, Elizabeth T.; Seabloom, Eric William; Hobbie, Sarah E.; Wubs, Engel Reinder Jasper; Adler, Peter B.; Firn, Jennifer L.; Gherardi, Laureano A.; Hagenah, Nicole; Hofmockel, Kirsten S.; Knops, Johannes M.H.; McCulley, Rebecca L.; MacDougall, Andrew S.; Peri, Pablo Luis; Prober, Suzanne M.; Stevens, Carly J.; Routh, Devin (Wiley, 2019-06)
      Soil stores approximately twice as much carbon as the atmosphere and fluctuations in the size of the soil carbon pool directly influence climate conditions. We used the Nutrient Network global change experiment to examine ...
    • Spatial heterogeneity in species composition constrains plant community responses to herbivory and fertilisation 

      Hodapp, Dorothee; Borer, Elizabeth T.; Harpole, William Stanley; Lind, Eric M.; Seabloom, Eric William; Adler, Peter B.; Alberti, Juan; Arnillas, Carlos Alberto; Bakker, Jonathan D.; Biederman, Lori; Cadotte, Marc; Cleland, Elsa E.; Collins, Scott; Fay, Philip A.; Firn, Jennifer L.; Hagenah, Nicole; Hautier, Yann; Iribarne, Oscar; Knops, Johannes M.H.; McCulley, Rebecca L.; MacDougall, Andrew S.; Moore, Joslin L.; Morgan, John W.; Mortensen, Brent; La Pierre, Kimberly J.; Risch, Anita C.; Schütz, Martin; Peri, Pablo Luis; Stevens, Carly J.; Wright, Justin P.; Hillebrand, Helmut (Wiley, 2018-09)
      Environmental change can result in substantial shifts in community composition. The associated immigration and extinction events are likely constrained by the spatial distribution of species. Still, studies on environmental ...
