- ... The stability of populations is a central, yet challenging concept in ecology. Here, we examine the stability of annual abundance for populations of nine native and four exotic lady beetle species (Coccinellidae) in a mixed landscape in Michigan, USA, over 23 yr. The species have similar life histories, live together in the same habitats, and have been disturbed by the sequential introduction of e ...

- ... 1. Global climate change models predict an increase in the frequency and magnitude of extreme temperature events. These temperature events, heatwaves for example, will impact a wide range of physiological and behavioural processes, particularly in ectotherms, and may therefore influence interactions between species. 2. Anti-predator responses may be more costly under more severe temperature regime ...

- ... 1. Most trophic interaction theory assumes that all predators are an abstract form of risk to which prey respond in a quantitatively similar manner. This conceptualization can be problematic because recent empirical work demonstrates that variation in the responses of prey to different predators can play a key role in structuring communities and regulating ecosystem function. 2. Predator identity ...
