I just wanted to give a heads up that I am planning on expanding this site to include a more detailed intro as well as a few subsections: mechanisms behind IDH, alternative hypotheses for coexistence, testing the IDH and applications for management. Sound good?—Preceding unsigned comment added by Biota007 (talkcontribs) 22:58, 4 March 2007

Sure, but please be sure to sign your comments, otherwise we don't know who is offering to expand it or when they did so. Richard001 06:48, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

This page needs the figure[edit]

that is used to explain the change in diversity with different levels of disturbance. If you have it please post it...Avram Primack (talk) —Preceding undated comment was added at 18:53, 23 October 2008 (UTC).

first proposed by...

Hutchinson 1953; "All these elements can be found in Hutchinson (1953), except the idea that there are few species when disturbance is too severe, which Hutchinson probably took for granted." (Wilson B J, 1994)

also the theory name was first coined by Connell, also meantioned in the article

I plan on adding further detail about IDH model and examples to typecast different levels of disturbances. Also so the underlying connection between disturbance and specie richness. Cristina Chinchayan {talk}

I have found two studies to support the IDH with regards to marine coral reef and macroalgal communities. Lyssie3 (talk) 23:42, 10 October 2012 (UTC)

I would like to expand on the history section. The article that talks about the controversy over the originator of the hypothesis goes into a lot more depth about when and where the idea originated. Ezambetti (talk) 14:56, 11 October 2012 (UTC)
