Shrubs as foundation species in a high tropical alpine ecosystem: a multi-scale analysis of plant spatial interactions
(Plant Ecology and Diversity, 2014-09)
Background: Studies on plant–plant interactions in alpine ecosystems show a strong bias for temperate vs. tropical latitudes and pay limited attention to the implications of biophysical heterogeneity beyond the local plant ...
The context-dependence of beneficiary feedback effects in plant facilitations
(New Phytologist: DOI: 10.1111/nph.12908, 2014-05-20)
Facilitative effects of some species on others are a major driver of biodiversity. These positive effects of a benefactor on its beneﬁciary can result in negative feedback effects of the beneﬁciary on the benefactor and ...

Freezing avoidance in tropical Andean bamboos
(The Journal of the American Bamboo Society 27:1-10., 2014)
Frost resistance was compared in five species of different life forms in the neotropical woody bamboo genus Chusquea growing along a cloud forest-paramo gradient, between 2250-4010 m a.s.l. in the Venezuelan Andes. C. ...

Modeling microbial exchanges between forms of soil nitrogen in contrasting ecosystems
(Biogeosciences Discussions, 10(3): 5749-5780, 2013-03-25)
Although nitrogen (N) is often linked to carbon (C) in organic molecules, C is carried from the tmosphere to the soil through plants while N is carried from the soil to plants by microbial transformations. Many schemes ...
