Abstract

The uptake rates of methane (CH4) in alpine regions remain highly uncertain. Southeast Tibet holds one of the highest alpine forest ecosystems worldwide, which provides us with an ideal experimental site for CH4 uptake rates observation. Therefore, we conducted a two-year observation from August...

Abstract

Under the ongoing warmer and wetter climate in the arid and semi-arid Altai Mountains, the key to understanding and predicting how forest growth responds to the changing climate in this area is to explore the dynamics of xylem formation and its climate drivers. However, such precise and high-time...

Abstract

Methane (CH4), one of the key long-lived atmospheric greenhouse gases, is primarily produced from organic matter. Accordingly, net primary production of organic matter sets the boundaries for CH4 emissions. Plants, being dominant primary producers, are thereby indirectly sustaining most global CH4...

Abstract

Classic ecological theory has proven that temperature, precipitation and productivity organize ecosystems at broad scales and are generalized drivers of biodiversity within different biomes. At local scales, the strength of these predictors is not consistent across different biomes. To better...

Abstract

Rhizosphere microorganisms and their interactions with plants in wetlands have recently attracted much attention due to their importance in enhancing plant environmental adaptation, removing wetland pollutants, and alleviating climate change. However, the fluctuating hydrological environment of...

Abstract

Climate change forecasts indicate that the frequency and intensity of extreme climate events will increase in the future; these changes will have important effects on ecosystem stability and function. An important arid region of the world, Central Asia has ecosystems that are extremely vulnerable...

Abstract

Some research assesses the spatial and temporal variations in microplastic pollution in specific ecosystems, such as the estuarine regions of Thiruvananthapuram and Kollam, taking into account its potential effects on the aquatic ecosystem and the lack of information on the abundances of...

Abstract

Benthic indices have been widely used across different coastal ecosystems to assess ecological quality and detect anthropic impacts, but very few studies investigated their effectiveness on sandy beaches. Here, we evaluated and compared the efficacy of 12 assemblage-based benthic indices in...

Abstract

In many countries the use of lead-based ammunition is prevalent, and results in exposure and poisoning of waterfowl and other species of birds. In waterfowl hunting areas large quantities of spent shot may be deposited in wetland and terrestrial habitats. These pellets can undergo transformations,...
