Global synthesis of the temperature sensitivity of leaf litter breakdown in streams and rivers
Streams and rivers are important conduits of terrestrially derived carbon (C) to atmospheric and marine reservoirs. Leaf litter breakdown rates are expected to increase as water temperatures rise in response to climate ...
Ecological Restoration in an Era of Ecological Disequilibrium
(Asian Journal of Experimental Sciences, 2006)
The current rate of ecological destruction greatly exceeds the rate of ecological repair, a situation that obviously cannot continue indefinitely. In addition, the rate of biotic impoverishment makes finding suitable species ...
The effects of hypolimnetic anoxia on the diel vertical migration of freshwater crustacean zooplankton
(Ecological Society of America, 2018-07)
Lakes and reservoirs worldwide are increasingly experiencing depletion of dissolved oxygen (anoxia) in their bottom waters (the hypolimnion) because of climate change and eutrophication, which is altering the dynamics of ...
