Comparative Studies of Abundance and Species Richness Patterns among Mammalian Nematodes

Principal Investigators:

Per Arneberg

My research interests are in the domain of macroecology. I am doing comparative studies of abundance and species richness patterns among mammalian nematodes. Papers have been published so far in The American Naturalist (Arneberg et al. 1998, 151: 497-513), Oikos (Arneberg et al. 1997, 80: 289-300) and Proceedings of The Royal Society of London, Series B (Arneberg et al. 1998, 265:1283-1289).

The questions I ask are about general determinants of abundance and species richness in communities of nematodes in mammals. Thus, I aim to focus directly... more
