EFFECTS OF BIODIVERSITY ON ECOSYSTEM FUNCTIONING: A CONSENSUS OF CURRENT KNOWLEDGE
TLDR
Understanding this complexity, while taking strong steps to minimize current losses of species, is necessary for responsible management of Earth's ecosystems and the diverse biota they contain.
Global biodiversity scenarios for the year 2100.
TLDR
This study identified a ranking of the importance of drivers of change, aranking of the biomes with respect to expected changes, and the major sources of uncertainties in projections of future biodiversity change.

“Sight‐unseen” detection of rare aquatic species using environmental DNA
TLDR
Quantitative comparisons with traditional fisheries surveillance tools illustrate the greater sensitivity of eDNA and reveal that the risk of invasion to the Laurentian Great Lakes is imminent.

Ecological Predictions and Risk Assessment for Alien Fishes in North America
TLDR
A quantitative approach to target prevention efforts on species most likely to cause damage to the Great Lakes if introduced from unintentional (ballast water) or intentional pathways (sport, pet, bait, and aquaculture industries) is developed.
Biological invasions: recommendations for U.S. policy and management.
TLDR
The Ecological Society of America recommends that the federal government take the following six actions: use new information and practices to better manage commercial and other pathways to reduce the transport and release of potentially harmful species, and establish a National Center for Invasive Species Management.
Ecological forecasts: an emerging imperative.
TLDR
Access to reliable forecasts of ecosystem state, ecosystem services, and natural capital will increase the ability to forecast ecosystem change and create a capacity to produce, evaluate, and communicate forecasts of critical ecosystem services.
From Greenland to green lakes: Cultural eutrophication and the loss of benthic pathways in lakes
Benthic community responses to lake eutrophication are poorly understood relative to pelagic responses. We compared phytoplankton and periphyton productivity along a eutrophication gradient in
