Other Food Web Research
In previous food web research, in collaboration with Drs. Jim Estes and Donald Croll (U.C. Santa Cruz), we have examined how the historic introduction of foxes onto islands in the Aleutian archipeligo has disrupted nutrient subsidies brought in my nesting seasbirds, and how this has had strong cascading indirect effects on island plant communities and productivity (relevant publications: Croll et al. 2005, Maron et al. 2006).
