Lead concentrations in feathers and blood of common blackbirds (Turdus merula) and in earthworms inhabiting unpolluted and moderately polluted urban areas.
TLDR
It is suggested that Pb may still be of environmental concern for blackbirds in urban areas because of the persistence of Pb in soils and its transfer through the food chain. Expand
Above- and belowground linkages in Sphagnum peatland: climate warming affects plant-microbial interactions.
TLDR
It is suggested that warming will destabilize C and nutrient recycling of peatlands via changes in above- and belowground linkages, and therefore, the microbial food web associated with mosses will feedback positively to global warming by destabilizing the carbon cycle. Expand
Persistence of bromadiolone anticoagulant rodenticide in Arvicola terrestris populations after field control.
TLDR
It is indicated that an important risk of poisoning of nontarget species does exist during large-scale field control operations with bromadiolone, which is contradictory to results obtained from laboratory experiments in the early 1980s and consistent with the secondary poisoning hazards due to repeated exposure regularly reported during the past 20 years.

Dietary response of Barn Owls (Tyto alba) to large variations in populations of common voles (Microtus arvalis) and European water voles (Arvicola terrestris)
TLDR
The diet of the Barn Owl was studied over an 8-year period in the Jura mountains of France, during two population surges of its main rodent prey, confirming that T. alba is generally opportunistic but prey selection of a focal species can be affected by the density or availability of the other prey species. Expand
Microbial diversity and ecological networks as indicators of environmental quality
Evaluating the quality of ecosystems in terms of biological patrimony and functioning is of critical importance in the actual context of intensified human activities. Microbial diversity is commonlyExpand
Atmospheric phenanthrene transfer and effects on two grassland species and their root symbionts: A microcosm study
TLDR
Neither biomass accumulation nor symbiotic association was affected in ryegrass, probably due to a lower sensitivity of this species to PHE exposure, and Perspectives of carbon allocation and nitrogen nutrition perturbations are suggested in clovers. Expand
Effects of Experimental Lead Pollution on the Microbial Communities Associated with Sphagnum fallax (Bryophyta)
TLDR
The community approach used here complements classical ecotoxicological studies by providing clues to the complex effect of pollutant-affecting organisms both directly and indirectly through trophic effects and could potentially find applications for pollution monitoring. Expand
Responses of Arvicola terrestris scherman populations to agricultural practices, and to Talpa europaea abundance in eastern France
TLDR
This study indicates that A. terrestris population dynamics patterns was governed by multifactorial processes and may help to rethink population outbreak control through farming practices complementary to other methods. Expand
Dietary response of barn owls (Tyto alba) to large variations in Microtus arvalis and Arvicola terrestris prey populations
TLDR
The diet of the Barn Owl was studied over an 8-year period in the Jura mountains of France, during two population surges of its main rodent prey, confirming that T. alba is generally opportunistic but prey selection of a focal species can be affected by the density or availability of the other prey species. Expand
To What Extent Do Food Preferences Explain the Trophic Position of Heterotrophic and Mixotrophic Microbial Consumers in a Sphagnum Peatland?
TLDR
Overall, the results show that testate amoebae occupy different trophic levels within the microbial food web, depending on their feeding behavior, the density of their food resources, and their metabolism, which should lead to improved models of microbial community function. Expand
