    • Asynchrony among local communities stabilises ecosystem function of metacommunities 

      Wilcox, Kevin R.; Tredennick, Andrew T.; Koerner, Sally E.; Grman, Emily; Hallett, Lauren M.; Avolio, Meghan L.; La Pierre, Kimberly J.; Houseman, Gregory R. (Wiley, 2017-12)
      Temporal stability of ecosystem functioning increases the predictability and reliability of ecosystem services, and understanding the drivers of stability across spatial scales is important for land management and policy ...
    • A comprehensive approach to analyzing community dynamics using rank abundance curves 

      Avolio, Meghan L.; Carroll, Ian T.; Collins, Scott L.; Houseman, Gregory R.; Hallett, Lauren M.; Isbell, Forest I.; Koerner, Sally E.; Komatsu, Kimberly J.; Smith, Melinda D.; Wilcox, Kevin R. (Wiley-Blackwell, 2019-10-17)
      Univariate and multivariate methods are commonly used to explore the spatial and temporal dynamics of ecological communities, but each has limitations, including oversimplification or abstraction of communities. Rank ...
    • A framework for quantifying the magnitude and variability of community responses to global change drivers 

      Avolio, Meghan L.; La Pierre, Kimberly J.; Houseman, Gregory R.; Koerner, Sally E.; Grman, Emily; Isbell, Forest; Johnson, David Samuel; Wilcox, Kevin R. (Ecological Society of America, 2015-12-21)
      A major challenge in global change ecology is to predict the trajectory and magnitude of community change in response to global change drivers (GCDs). Here, we present a new framework that not only increases the predictive ...
