Native thistles: expendable or integral to ecosystem resistance to invasion? / S.M. Louda and T.A. Rand -- The overriding importance of environmental context in determining the outcome of species-deletion experiments / B.A. Menge -- Species importance and context: spatial and temporal variation in species interactions / C.D.G. Harley -- Effects on removing a vertebrate versus an invertebrate predator on a food web, and what is their relative importance / T.W. Schoener and D.A. Spiller -- Understanding the effects of reduced biodiversity: a comparison of two approaches / J.T. Wootton and A.L. Downing -- Models of ecosystem reliability and their implications for the question of expendability / S. Naeem -- Predicting the effects of species loss on community stability / D. Doak and M. Marvier -- One fish, two fish, old fish, new fish: which invasions matter? / J.L. Ruesink -- Ecological gambling: expendable extinctions versus acceptable invasions / M.J. Wonham -- Rarity and functional importance in a phytoplankton community / D.E. Schindler ... [et al.] -- Community and ecosystem impacts of single-species extinctions / D. Simberloff -- Social conflict, biological ignorance, and trying to agree which species are expendable / E.G. Leigh Jr. -- Which mutualists are most essential? Buffering of plant reproduction against the extinction of pollinators / W.F. Morris -- The expendability of species: a test case based on the caterpillars on goldenrods / R.B. Root -- An evolutionary perspective on the importance of species: why ecologists care about evolution / S.R. Palumbi -- Recovering species of conservation concern-are populations expendable? / M.
