Extinction debt

Future extinction of species due to events in the past.

Biodiversity of a coral reef. Corals adapt to and modify their environment by forming calcium carbonate skeletons. This provides growing conditions for future generations and forms a habitat for many other species.

The term extinction debt was first used in 1994 in a paper by David Tilman, Robert May, Clarence Lehman and Martin Nowak, although Jared Diamond used the term "relaxation time" to describe a similar phenomenon in 1972.

Robert H. MacArthur Award

Biennial prize given by the Ecological Society of America to ecologists for their pivotal contributions to their field.

1996 David Tilman, United States

Ramon Margalef Prize in Ecology

Prize awarded annually to recognize an exceptional scientific career or discovery in the field of ecology or other environmental science.

Biodiversity of a coral reef. Corals adapt to and modify their environment by forming calcium carbonate skeletons. This provides growing conditions for future generations and forms a habitat for many other species.

R* rule (ecology)

Hypothesis in community ecology that attempts to predict which species will become dominant as the result of competition for resources.

A bear with a salmon. Interspecific interactions such as predation are a key aspect of community ecology.

The hypothesis was formulated by American ecologist David Tilman.

Plant strategies

Plant strategies include mechanisms and responses plants use to reproduce, defend, survive, and compete on the landscape.

Here the relation between genotype and phenotype is illustrated, using a Punnett square, for the character of petal colour in a pea plant. The letters B and b represent alleles for colour and the pictures show the resultant flowers. The diagram shows the cross between two heterozygous parents where B represents the dominant allele (purple) and b represents the recessive allele (white).

G. David Tilman developed the R* rule in support of resource competition theory.
