    • Diapause may promote coexistence of zooplankton competitors 

      Aránguiz Acuña, Adriana; Ramos Jiliberto, Rodrigo (Oxford University Press, 2014)
      Production of diapausing eggs in many zooplankton species occurs after partial switching from parthenogenesis to sexual reproduction. Storage effect theory predicts the stable long-term coexistence of competitors ...
    • Experimental evidence that induced defenses promote coexistence of zooplanktonic populations 

      Aránguiz Acuña, Adriana; Bustamante Araya, Ramiro; Ramos Jiliberto, Rodrigo (Oxford University Press, 2011)
      Theoretical predictions suggest that adaptive phenotypic plasticity, and induced defenses in particular, exert a stabilizing effect on ecological systems and increase the likelihood of species coexistence. Nonetheless, ...
