The dimensionality of ecological networks
How many dimensions (trait-axes) are required to predict whether two species interact? This unanswered question originated with the idea of ecological niches, and yet bears relevance today for understanding what determines ...
Reconstructing past ecological networks: the reconfiguration of seed-dispersal interactions after megafaunal extinction
The late Quaternary megafaunal extinction impacted ecological communities worldwide, and affected key ecological processes such as seed dispersal. The traits of several species of large-seeded plants are thought to have ...
Rewilding ecological communities and rewiring ecological networks
Rewilding encompasses management actions such as reintroductions and translocations with the purpose of restoring ecological processes and ecosystem functions that were lost when species were locally extirpated. The success ...
MODULAR: software for the autonomous computation of modularity in large network sets
Disentangling the co-structure of multilayer interaction networks: degree distribution and module composition in two-layer bipartite networks
(Nature Publishing Group, 2017-11)
Species establish different interactions (e.g. antagonistic, mutualistic) with multiple species, forming multilayer ecological networks. Disentangling network co-structure in multilayer networks is crucial to predict how ...
Ecological networks - beyond food webs
The network structure of myrmecophilic interactions
1. Ants establish mutualistic interactions involving a wide range of protective relationships (myrmecophily), in which they provide defence against enemies and partners provide food rewards and/or refuge. Although similar ...
Processes entangling interactions in communities: forbidden links are more important than abundance in a hummingbird-plant network
