Biodiversity in a complex world: consolidation and progress in functional biodiversity research.
The global decline of biodiversity caused by human domination of ecosystems worldwide is supposed to alter important process rates and state variables in these ecosystems. However, there is… Expand
Effects of sea surface warming on marine plankton.

Ocean warming has been implicated in the observed decline of oceanic phytoplankton biomass. Some studies suggest a physical pathway of warming via stratification and nutrient flux, and others a… Expand
Effects of increased CO2 concentration on nutrient limited coastal summer plankton depend on temperature
- Carolin Paul, Ulrich Sommer, Jessica Garzke, Maria Moustaka-Gouni, Allanah J Paul, Birte Matthiessen
- 1 May 2016
Increasing seawater temperature and CO2 concentrations both are expected to increase coastal phytoplankton biomass and carbon to nutrient ratios in nutrient limited seasonally stratified summer… Expand
Effects of experimental warming on biodiversity depend on ecosystem type and local species composition
Climatic warming is a primary driver of change in ecosystems worldwide. Here, we synthesize responses of species richness and evenness from 187 experimental warming studies in a quantitative… Expand
Community composition has greater impact on the functioning of marine phytoplankton communities than ocean acidification.

Ecosystem functioning is simultaneously affected by changes in community composition and environmental change such as increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2 ) and subsequent ocean acidification.… Expand
Diel and habitat-dependent resource utilisation by deep-sea fishes at the Great Meteor seamount: niche overlap and support for the sound scattering layer interception hypothesis
Interspecific relationships of 4 dominant fish species of the Great Meteor seamount fish community (subtropical NE Atlantic, 30°N, 28.5°W), Macroramphosus spp. Lacepede 1803, Capros aper (L. 1758),… Expand
Temperature effects on seaweed-sustaining top-down control vary with season
Rising seawater temperature and CO2 concentrations (ocean acidification) represent two of the most influential factors impacting marine ecosystems in the face of global climate change. In ecological… Expand
Warming, but not enhanced CO2 concentration, quantitatively and qualitatively affects phytoplankton biomass
We investigated the impacts of predicted ocean acidification and future warming on the quantity and nutritional quality of a natural phytoplankton autumn bloom in a mesocosm experiment. Since the… Expand
Dispersal frequency affects local biomass production by controlling local diversity.
Dispersal is a major factor regulating the number of coexisting species, but the relationship between species diversity and ecosystem processes has mainly been analysed for communities closed to… Expand
A heat wave and dispersal cause dominance shift and decrease biomass in experimental metacommunities
In experimental metacommunities with marine benthic microalgae, we tested whether heat stress changes effects of connectivity and habitat heterogeneity on metacommunity structure and functioning, by… Expand
