Plant neighbours mediate bird predation effects on arthropod abundance and herbivory (pages 448–455)
Brice Giffard, Luc Barbaro, Hervé Jactel and Emmanuel Corcket
Since the iconoclastic days of Dan Simberloff, ecologists have tried much harder to test experimentally whether community-level interactions matter. An abundance of evidence has resulted, first from simple interspecific interactions and then from more complex ones. This nice experiment shows the complexity and conditionality of the tritrophic interactions based on oak trees and involving plant neighbours, insect herbivores and insectivorous birds.
