Restoration of invaded California grasslands

Principal Investigators:

Eric Seabloom

The evolution of behavior and plant-community dynamics are two seemingly disparate elements in ecology. However, the movement of animals through a landscape can have strong impacts on the competitive coexistence of various plant life-history strategies, and the distribution of resources can alter animal-movement patterns. Accordingly, animal behavior and plant-community dynamics can be inextricably linked by the influence of animal movement on the composition of plant communities and, in the case of herbivores, the effects of plant-community composition... more
