Transport Distance of Invertebrate Environmental DNA in a Natural River
Environmental DNA (eDNA) monitoring is a novel molecular technique to detect species in natural habitats. Many eDNA studies in aquatic systems have focused on lake or ponds, and/or on largeExpand

Choice of capture and extraction methods affect detection of freshwater biodiversity from environmental DNA
Environmental DNA (eDNA) is used to detect biodiversity by the capture, extraction, and identification of DNA shed to the environment. However, eDNA capture and extraction protocols vary widelyExpand

Environmental DNA metabarcoding: Transforming how we survey animal and plant communities
The genomic revolution has fundamentally changed how we survey biodiversity on earth. High‐throughput sequencing (“HTS”) platforms now enable the rapid sequencing of DNA from diverse kinds ofExpand

Diversity in riverine metacommunities: a network perspective
The influence of spatial processes on diversity and community dynamics is generally recognized in ecology and also applied to conservation projects involving forest and grassland ecosystems. RiverineExpand

Dendritic connectivity controls biodiversity patterns in experimental metacommunities
Biological communities often occur in spatially structured habitats where connectivity directly affects dispersal and metacommunity processes. Recent theoretical work suggests that dispersalExpand

Tell me what you eat and I'll tell you when you fly: diet can predict phenological changes in response to climate change.
Changes in phenology are correlated with climate change. However, we still struggle to understand the traits making species susceptible to climate change, and the implications of species' reactionsExpand

The ecological forecast horizon, and examples of its uses and determinants
Forecasts of ecological dynamics in changing environments are increasingly important, and are available for a plethora of variables, such as species abundance and distribution, community structureExpand

Impacts of urbanisation on biodiversity: the role of species mobility, degree of specialisation and spatial scale
Urbanisation has an important impact on biodiversity, mostly driving changes in species assemblages, through the replacement of specialist with generalist species, thus leading to bioticExpand
