Biotic and abiotic variables influencing plant litter breakdown in streams: a global study
(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 ...
Plant species richness controls arthropod food web: Evidence from an experimental model system
(Oxford University Press on behalf of Entomological Society of America, 2019)
The effects of plant species richness on the function and stability of ecosystems have been an area of focus in recent decades. Arthropod community is one of the most important components in agroecosystems and can provide ...
Similar compositional turnover but distinct insular environmental and geographical drivers of native and exotic ants in two oceans
Aim This study aims to quantify the patterns in compositional turnover of native and exotic ants on small islands in two oceans, and to explore whether such patterns are driven by similar environmental, geographical and ...
