Oh Neal, sorry, but don't worry. That was partly the point of the sarcasm.
I'll test it out later at home, but if you can't get to a free abstract
from a DOI, then the journal probably ought not to be doing it that way.
Obviously more obtuse than I thought.

Try: http://www.esajournals.org/doi/abs/10.1890/11-1448.1

(Actually another thing that puzzles me is why one can't look up something
to find the publisher when there's a bad DOI)
