Eutrophication-induced changes in benthic algae affect the behaviour and fitness of the marine amphipod Gammarus locusta
This study, conducted in mesocosms, natural field sites, and in laboratory aquaria, showed that eutrophication altered the nutrient status and dominance patterns among marine macroalgae, which inExpand

Biomass response and changes in composition of ephemeral macroalgal assemblages along an experimental gradient of nutrient enrichment.
Most conceptual marine eutrophication models predict that ephemeral and epiphytic macroalgae will become substantially more abundant with increasing nutrient richness. This expectation is based onExpand

The Response of Experimental Rocky Shore Communities to Nutrient Additions
The aim of this study was to determine whether the experimental nutrient enrichment of littoral rocky shore communities would be followed by a predicted accumulation of fast-growing opportunisticExpand

Temporal stability of European rocky shore assemblages : variation across a latitudinal gradient and the role of habitat-formers
Compensatory dynamics, overyielding and statistical averaging are mechanisms promoting the temporal stability of natural communities. Using the model of European intertidal rocky shore assemblagesExpand

Differences in stress tolerance and brood size between a non-indigenous and an indigenous gammarid in the northern Baltic Sea
Differences in stress tolerance and reproductive traits may drive the competitive hierarchy between non-indigenous and indigenous species and turn the former ones into successful invaders. In theExpand

Are rocky shore ecosystems affected by nutrient-enriched seawater? Some preliminary results from a mesocosm experiment
The response of rocky shore ecosystems to increased nutrient availability was examined in eight land-based mesocosms designed for hard-bottom littoral communities built at Marine Research StationExpand

The filamentous green alga Cladophora glomerata as a habitat for littoral macro-fauna in the Northern Baltic Sea
Abstract Opportunistic filamentous algae are known to increase due to elevated nutrient levels (eutrophication) and to outcompete slow-growing perennial macroalgae in shallow coastal areas causingExpand

Model ecosystem replicability challenged by the “soft” reality of a hard bottom mesocosm
Abstract The concept of model ecosystem replicability is challenged by a case study of a land-based brackish-water mesocosm. Coefficients of variation (CVs) are calculated for a total of 50Expand

Non-native marine invertebrates are more tolerant towards environmental stress than taxonomically related native species: results from a globally replicated study.
To predict the risk associated with future introductions, ecologists seek to identify traits that determine the invasiveness of species. Among numerous designated characteristics, tolerance towardsExpand

Responses to nutrient enrichment, wave action and disturbance in rocky shore communities
Abstract A high degree of resistance against nutrient enrichment has previously been demonstrated for macroalgal-dominated rocky shore communities in the presence of moderate to large amounts ofExpand
