Biodiversity under threat in glacier-fed river systems
In many regions climate change is reducing the glacial meltwater contribution to river flow, but the effect of these changes on specialized glacier-fed river communities is poorly quantified. Now…

This review revisits this phenomenon to provide a comprehensive description of the nature of binding and of spectral modifications occurring in copigmentation complexes, in which charge transfer plays an important role.

It is suggested that a more vigorous analysis and discussion of the factors discouraging IPM adoption in developing countries may accelerate the progress needed to bring about its full potential.
Impacts of stream acidification on litter breakdown: implications for assessing ecosystem functioning
Measuring leaf breakdown rate may be developed into a simple, powerful and low-cost tool for assessing a critical component of ecosystem functioning and is advocated for the routine biomonitoring of freshwaters affected by, or recovering from, other anthropogenic stresses.
Species richness–decomposition relationships depend on species dominance
Investigation of spatial and temporal variability of leaf decomposition rates and community metrics of leaf-eating invertebrates (shredders) in streams finds that shredder community composition dramatically influenced the diversity‐ function relationship.
Functional plasticity of benthic macroinvertebrates: implications for trophic dynamics in acid streams

It was showed that acid streams unexpectedly had very few specialised leaf-shredding species (e.g., Chaetopteryx villosa) that could explain the slow leaf detritus processing rates observed in these systems.
Genetic bottleneck in invasive species: the potato tuber moth adds to the list
It is found that the genetic homogenization in T. solanivora was among the strongest reported and discussed factors that can explain the success of invasive populations with low genetic diversity.
