Abstract

Breeding colonies of black terns (Chlidonias niger) have become increasingly rare in U.S. Great Lakes coastal wetlands since the mid-twentieth century, with an almost 90% decline in the number of active colony sites since 1991. Although the specific causes of this wetland species' decline are...

Abstract

Wetlands emit a large quantity of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere and contribute significantly to global warming. The Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, known as the "Third Pole" of the earth, contains abundant and diverse wetlands. Due to increasing human-induced pressures such as reclamation,...

Abstract

Extracellular polymeric substances (EPS) are ubiquitous on tidal flats but their impact on sediment erosion has not been fully understood. Laboratory-controlled sediment beds were incubated with Bacillus subtilis for 5, 10, 16, and 22 days before the erosion experiments, to study the temporal and...

Abstract

Quantifying the risk of extinction due to habitat loss is an increasingly urgent task for the design and implementation of effective conservation interventions. Methods based on species- and endemics-area relationships are well developed, but applications to date have concentrated primarily on the...

Abstract

The world's largest area of tropical peatland ecosystems is found in South-East Asia. These peatlands have globally significant carbon stocks and play an important role in regional and global climate systems. Despite the valuable social and economic services and ecosystem biodiversity these...

Abstract

Conservation Compliance ties eligibility for most Federal farm program benefits to soil and wetland conservation. To be eligible for farm program benefits, farmers must apply an approved soil conservation system on highly erodible cropland (Highly Erodible Land Conservation, or HELC) and refrain...

Abstract

Potential for habitat restoration is increasingly used as an argument for reintroducing ecosystem engineers. Beaver have well known effects on hydromorphology through dam construction, but their scope to restore wetland biodiversity in areas degraded by agriculture is largely inferred. Our study...

Abstract

The assimilation of wastewater effluent into wetlands is used to combat land loss in Southeast Louisiana. This study reports on changes in benthic insect diversity at a wetland assimilation site over the course of multiple years of sampling, during which time an initially healthy marsh degraded to...

Abstract

The Sefid-roud river is located in the Guilan province in the northern part of Iran and in the vicinity of the southern coastal region of the Caspian Sea. In recent years, due to a lack of watershed process and some geological reasons, a large amount of sediments have arrived in the Sefid-roud...
