Examples

  • An obvious example of an allogenic engineer is the beaver and its impact on riparian systems through the construction of dams.

    Species influences upon ecosystem function

  • According to proponents of the ecosystem engineer story, the example should be retold: otters change the effect of an allogenic engineer – urchins – upon an autogenic engineer – kelp beds; the change in kelp bed structure causes the rest of the cascade of effects.
