Felipe de Vargas Ribeiro: Kelps As Gatekeepers Of Temperate Reefs

In our latest post, Felipe de Vargas Ribeiro presents his latest article “Shield wall: Kelps are the last stand against corals in tropicalized reefs.” He discusses his group’s results from studying Australian Kelp forests, the importance of biotic interactions in novel communities, and encourages his Brazilian fellows to endure in science. About the paper Coastal ecosystems provide food and shelter to many species, along with … Continue reading Felipe de Vargas Ribeiro: Kelps As Gatekeepers Of Temperate Reefs

Simulated winter warming negatively impacts survival of Antarctica’s only endemic insect: Podcast Transcript

In this podcast for Functional Ecology, Assistant Editor, Frank Harris, sits down with Jack J. Devlin—an early career researcher from the University of Kentucky—to discuss his recently published paper ‘Simulated winter warming negatively impacts survival of Antarctica’s only endemic insect.’ With warmer winters expected to become more common with climate change, this study’s results indicate that winter warming could negatively impact cold-adapted insects like the … Continue reading Simulated winter warming negatively impacts survival of Antarctica’s only endemic insect: Podcast Transcript

Emerging relationships among microbes, soil carbon storage and climate change: Podcast transcript

In this podcast for Functional Ecology, Assistant Editor, Frank Harris, sits down with two Guest Editors—Pablo García-Palacios and Ji Chen— to discuss our recently published Special Feature on soil carbon storage. The Special Feature identifies emerging findings from soil microbial ecology and climate change research that can be used to reduce uncertainty if incorporated into theory and models. Frank: Today, I have Pablo García-Palacios and … Continue reading Emerging relationships among microbes, soil carbon storage and climate change: Podcast transcript
