A note on the configuration of the digital ecosystem in Latin America
(Instituto Tecnológico de Costa Rica, 2022)
Role of reef-building, ecosystem engineering polychaetes in shallow water ecosystems
(MDPI AG, 2019-09)
Although the effect of ecosystem engineers in structuring communities is common in several systems, it is seldom as evident as in shallow marine soft-bottoms. These systems lack abiotic three-dimensional structures but ...
Determinants of Consumers´ Perceived Trust in IT-Ecosystems
(Universidad de Talca, 2010)
The emergence of the ecosystem management function in B2B firms
Ecosystem management (EM) encompasses all the activities required to design and manage ecosystems for distributed value creation. Although the literature represents a growing body of knowledge on the unique challenges ...
Crab Burrowing Limits Surface Litter Accumulation in a Temperate Salt Marsh: Implications for Ecosystem Functioning and Connectivity
Burial of aboveground plant litter by animals reduces the amount available for surface transport and places it into a different environment, affecting decomposition rates and fluxes of organic matter to adjacent ecosystems. ...
Toward an integrated ecosystem perspective of invasive species impacts
(Gauthier-villars/editions Elsevier, 2014-01)
Progress in the study of ecosystem impacts of invasive species can be facilitated by moving from the evaluation of invasive species impacts on particular processes to the analysis of their overall effects on ecosystem ...
The ecosystem functioning dimension in conservation: Insights from remote sensing
An important goal of conservation biology is the maintenance of ecosystem processes. Incorporating quantitative measurements of ecosystem functions into conservation practice is important given that it provides not only ...
Incorporating plant functional diversity effects in ecosystem service assessments
(National Academy of Sciences, 2007-12)
Global environmental change affects the sustained provision of a wide set of ecosystem services. Although the delivery of ecosystem services is strongly affected by abiotic drivers and direct land use effects, it is also ...
