(The Royal Society Publishing, 2016)
      Plant litter breakdown is a key ecological process in terrestrial and freshwater ecosystems. Streams and rivers, in particular, contribute substantially to global carbon fluxes. However, there is little information available ...
    • Latitudinal gradient of nestedness and its potential drivers in stream detritivores 

      Boyero, L.; Pearson, R.G.; Swan, C.M.; Hui, C.; Albarino, R.J.; Arunachalam, M.; Callisto, M.; Chara, J.; Chara-Serna, A.M.; Chauvet, E.; Cornejo, A.; Dudgeon, D.; Encalada, A.C.; Ferreira, V.; Gessner, M.O.; Goncalves Jr., J.F.; Graca, M.A.S.; Helson, J.E.; Mathooko, J.M.; McKie, B.G.; Moretti, M.S.; Yule, C.M. (John Wiley & Sons, 2015)
      Understanding what mechanisms shape the diversity and composition of biological assemblages across broad-scale gradients is central to ecology. Litter-consuming detritivorous invertebrates in streams show an unusual diversity ...
