Strong bottom-up and top-down control of early life stages of macroalgae
In contrast to most pelagic primary producers, benthic macrophytes pass through morphologically distinct life stages, which can be subject to different ecological controls. Using factorial field experiments, we investigated ...
Complex interactions of climatic and ecological controls on macroalgal recruitment.
Little is known about the cumulative effects of multiple (>2) environmental controls on species performance and interactions in aquatic ecosystems. We asked how changes in climatic (temperature, ultraviolet radiation) and ...
Coastal food web structure, carbon storage, and nitrogen retention regulated by consumer pressure and nutrient loading
By factorial field experiments we analyzed the relative effects of increased nutrient (N+P) loading and natural grazing pressure on species composition, carbon storage, and nitrogen retention in the Baltic Sea littoral ...
Effects of eutrophication, grazing, and algal blooms on rocky shores
Eutrophication can profoundly change rocky shore communities. These changes often cause the replacement of perennial, canopy-forming algae such as Fucus spp. with annual, bloom-forming algae such as Enteromorpha spp. ...
