Herbivores in a small world: Network theory highlights vulnerability in the function of herbivory on coral reefs

Bathgate (previously Fox), Rebecca; Bellwood, David

Description

Summary: The application of network theory within the field of ecology has predominantly been based around the examination of species interactions (e.g. food webs). Extension of networks to spatial ecology is currently limited, yet the approach has significant potential as a framework for analysing habitat connectivity and ecosystem stability. Examination of network structures characterizing the spatial dynamics of organisms has the potential to highlight the relative robustness or...[Show more]
