Seed germination traits can contribute better to plant community ecology
Analyses of functional traits have become fundamental tools for understanding patterns and processes in plant community ecology. In this context, regenerative seed traits play an important, yet overlooked, role because ...
The dimensionality of ecological networks
How many dimensions (trait-axes) are required to predict whether two species interact? This unanswered question originated with the idea of ecological niches, and yet bears relevance today for understanding what determines ...
Trait contributions to fish community assembly emerge from trophic interactions in an individual-based model
Community ecology seeks to understand and predict the characteristics of communities that can develop under different environmental conditions, but most theory has been built on analytical models that are limited in the ...
The bacterial community structure of hydrocarbon-polluted marine environments as the basis for the definition of an ecological index of hydrocarbon exposure
(Japanese Soc Microbial Ecology, 2014-06-24)
The aim of this study was to design a molecular biological tool, using information provided by amplicon pyrosequencing of 16S rRNA genes, that could be suitable for environmental assessment and bioremediation in marine ...
Lambari Aquaculture as a Means for the Sustainable Development of Rural Communities in Brazil
The challenge of developing rural communities is to combine socioeconomic enhancement and environmental conservation. Sustainable aquaculture using low-trophic level native small fish could be an important tool to aid in ...
A critical analysis of the ubiquity of linear local-regional richness relationships
Synthesis Despite theoretical criticisms, the ubiquity of linear relationships between local and regional species richness has long been used to justify it as a valid framework to conclude that local communities are not ...
