13 p, 798.2 KB Nematode distributions as spatial null models for macroinvertebrate species richness across environmental gradients : a case from mountain lakes / Mendoza, Guillermo de (Centre d'Estudis Avançats de Blanes) ; Traunspurger, Walter (Bielefeld Universität. Department of Animal Ecology) ; Palomo González, Alejandro (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia) ; Catalan, Jordi (Centre de Recerca Ecològica i d'Aplicacions)
Nematode species are widely tolerant of environmental conditions and disperse passively. Therefore, the species richness distribution in this group might largely depend on the topological distribution of the habitats and main aerial and aquatic dispersal pathways connecting them. [...]

Plant carbon (C) and nitrogen (N) stoichiometry play an important role in the maintenance of ecosystem structure and function. To decipher the influence of changing environment on plant C and N stoichiometry at the subcontinental scale, we studied the shoot and root C and N stoichiometry in two widely distributed and dominant genera along a 2,200-km climatic gradient in China's grasslands.

13 p, 863.3 KB Early-life foraging : behavioral responses of newly fledged albatrosses to environmental conditions / Grissac, Sophie de (Centre national de la recherche scientifique (França).

Centre d'Etudes Biologiques de Chizé) ; Weimerskirch, Henri (Centre national de la recherche scientifique (França). Centre d'Etudes Biologiques de Chizé)
In order to survive and later recruit into a population, juvenile animals need to acquire resources through the use of innate and/or learnt behaviors in an environment new to them. For far-ranging marine species, such as the wandering albatross Diomedea exulans, this is particularly challenging as individuals need to be able to rapidly adapt and optimize their movement strategies in response to the highly dynamic and heterogeneous nature of their open-ocean pelagic habitats.

The emission of floral terpenes plays a key role in pollination in many plant species. We hypothesized that the floral phyllospheric microbiota could significantly influence these floral terpene emissions because microorganisms also produce and emit terpenes. [...]

In this study, we compare annual fluxes of methane (CH₄), nitrous oxide (N₂O) and soil respiratory carbon dioxide (CO₂) measured at nine European peatlands (n = 4) and shrublands (n = 5). The sites range from northern Sweden to Spain, covering a span in mean annual air temperature from 0 to 16 °C, and in annual precipitation from 300 to 1300 mm yr⁻¹. [...]
