  • Paap, Trudy; Burgess, Treena I.; Rolo, Victor; Steel, Emma; Hardy, Giles E. St. J. (Elsevier, 2018-10)
    Forest ecosystems characterised by higher tree species diversity have been linked to a reduced susceptibility to pathogens. Conversely, endemic pathogens contribute to forest ecosystem dynamics and process. In the face of ...
  • Six, Diana L.; Poulsen, Michael; Hansen, Allison K.; Wingfield, Michael J.; Roux, Jolanda; Eggleton, Paul; Slippers, Bernard; Paine, Timothy D. (Springer, 2011)
    The influence of humans on ecosystem dynamics has been, and continues to be, profound. Anthropogenic effects are expected to amplify as human populations continue to increase. Concern over these effects has given rise to ...
