  • Nutrient scarcity strengthens soil fauna control over leaf litter decomposition in tropical rainforests. [Journal Article]
    Proc Biol Sci 2019; 286(1910):20191300Peguero G, Sardans J, … Peñuelas J
  • Soil fauna is a key control of the decomposition rate of leaf litter, yet its interactions with litter quality and the soil environment remain elusive. We conducted a litter decomposition experiment across different topographic levels within the landscape replicated in two rainforest sites providing natural gradients in soil fertility to test the hypothesis that low nutrient availability in litte…
  • Conversion of rainforest to oil palm and rubber plantations alters energy channels in soil food webs. [Journal Article]
    Ecol Evol 2019; 9(16):9027-9039Susanti WI, Pollierer MM, … Potapov A
  • In the last decades, lowland tropical rainforest has been converted in large into plantation systems. Despite the evident changes above ground, the effect of rainforest conversion on the channeling of energy in soil food webs was not studied. Here, we investigated community-level neutral lipid fatty acid profiles in dominant soil fauna to track energy channels in rainforest, rubber, and oil palm …
  • Bioassessment of a northwest Florida USA estuary using benthic macroinvertebrates. [Journal Article]
    Integr Environ Assess Manag 2019Nestlerode JA, Murrell MC, … Lisa JA
  • Benthic invertebrate community composition was surveyed across the salinity gradient of the Pensacola Bay Estuary, Florida during summer 2016. Macrofauna densities ranged from 1000 to 9300 individuals m-2 , with highest densities occurring at the upper estuary and the lowest in the mid- and lower estuary. Taxonomic richness and Shannon diversity were lowest in the upper estuary and increased alon…
  • Oceanic Microplankton Do Not Adhere to the Latitudinal Diversity Gradient. [Journal Article]
    Microb Ecol 2019Moss JA, Henriksson NL, … Jeffrey WH
  • A latitudinal biodiversity gradient has captivated ecologists for years, and has become a widely recognized pattern in biogeography, manifest as an increase in biodiversity from the poles to the tropics. Oceanographers have attempted to discern whether these distribution patterns are shared with marine biota, and a lively debate has emerged concerning the global distribution of microbes. Limitati…
  • Salinity drives meiofaunal community structure dynamics across the Baltic ecosystem. [Journal Article]
    Mol Ecol 2019; 28(16):3813-3829Broman E, Raymond C, … Nascimento FJA
  • Coastal benthic biodiversity is under increased pressure from climate change, eutrophication, hypoxia, and changes in salinity due to increase in river runoff. The Baltic Sea is a large brackish system characterized by steep environmental gradients that experiences all of the mentioned stressors. As such it provides an ideal model system for studying the impact of on-going and future climate chan…
  • Mechanisms of soil macrofauna community sustainability in temperate rice-growing systems. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep 2019; 9(1):10197Korobushkin DI, Gongalsky KB, … Zaitsev AS
  • Rice growing requires highly destructive and highly invasive field management negatively affecting soil biota and its functions. We aimed to compare taxonomic and functional trait compositions of soil macrofauna at different stages of rice cropping cycles in the three temperate rice-growing regions in Russia. Samples were collected in 2016 at four different biotopes in each region: flooded rice p…
