• Upscaling biodiversity: estimating the species-area relationship from small samples 

      Kunin, W.E.; Harte, J.; He, F.; Hui, C.; Jobe, R.T.; Ostling, A.; Polce, C.; Sizling, A.; Smith, A.B.; Smith, K.; Smart, S.M.; Storch, D.; Tjorve, E.; Ugland, K.-I.; Ulrich, W.; Varma, V. (Ecological Society of America, 2018)
      The challenge of biodiversity upscaling, estimating the species richness of a large area from scattered local surveys within it, has attracted increasing interest in recent years, producing a wide range of competing ...
    • Variability in life-history switch points across and within populations explained by Adaptive Dynamics 

      Landi, P.; Vonesh, J.R.V.; Hui, C. (The Royal Society Publishing, 2018)
      Understanding the factors that shape the timing of life-history switch points (SPs; e.g. hatching, metamorphosis and maturation) is a fundamental question in evolutionary ecology. Previous studies examining this question ...
    • A vision for global monitoring of biological invasions 

      Latombe, G.; Pyšek, P.; Jeschke, J.M.; Blackburn, T.M.; Bacher, W.; Capinha, C.; Costello, C.; Fernández, M.; Gregory, R.D.; Hobern, D.; Hui, C.; Jetz, W.; Kumschick, S.; McGrannachan, C.; Pergl, J.; Roy, H.E.; Scalera, R.; Squires, Z.E.; Wilson, J.R.U.; Winter, M.; Genovesi, P.; McGeoch, M.A. (Elsevier Ltd., 2017)
      Managing biological invasions relies on good global coverage of species distributions. Accurate information on alien species distributions, obtained from international policy and cross-border co-operation, is required to ...
    • Weakening density dependence from climate change and agricultural intensification triggers pest outbreaks: a 37-year observation of cotton bollworms 

      Ouyang, F.; Hui, C.; Ge, S.; Men, X. Y.; Zhoa, Z. H.; Shi, P. J.; Zhang, Y. S.; Li, B. L. (John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2014)
      Understanding drivers of population fluctuation, especially for agricultural pests, is central to the provision of agro-ecosystem services. Here, we examine the role of endogenous density dependence and exogenous factors ...
    • Why does not the leaf weight-area allometry of bamboos follos the 3/2-power law? 

      Lin, S.; Shao, L.; Hui, C.; Song, Y.; Reddy, G.V.P.; Gielis, J.; Li, F.; Ding, Y.; Wei, Q.; Shi, P. (Frontiers Media S.A., 2018)
      The principle of similarity (Thompson, 1917) states that the weight of an organism follows the 3/2-power law of its surface area and is proportional to its volume on the condition that the density is constant. However, ...
    • Zeta diversity as a concept and metric that unifies incidence-based biodiversity patterns 

      Hui, C.; McGeogh, M.A. (The American Society of Naturalists, 2014-11)
      Patterns in species incidence and compositional turnover are central to understanding what drives biodiversity. Here we propose zeta(ζ)diversity; the number of species shared by multiple assemblages, as a concept and metric ...
