Bioturbation enhances the aerobic respiration of lake sediments in warming lakes
While lakes occupy less than 2% of the total surface of the Earth, they play a substantial role in global biogeochemical cycles. For instance, shallow lakes are important sites of carbon metabolism.Expand

Effects of bioirrigation of non-biting midges (Diptera: Chironomidae) on lake sediment respiration
Bioirrigation or the transport of fluids into the sediment matrix due to the activities of organisms such as bloodworms (larvae of Diptera, Chironomidae), has substantial impacts on sedimentExpand

DNA metabarcoding reveals the complex and hidden responses of chironomids to multiple stressors
BackgroundChironomids, or non-biting midges, often dominate stream invertebrate communities in terms of biomass, abundance, and species richness and play an important role in riverine food webs.Expand

Complex and nonlinear climate-driven changes in freshwater insect communities over 42 years.
The ongoing biodiversity crisis becomes evident in the widely observed decline in abundance and diversity of species, profound changes in community structure and shifts in the species' phenology.Expand

Elevated temperatures translate into reduced dispersal abilities in a natural population of an aquatic insect.
1.Rising global temperatures force many species to shift their distribution ranges. However, whether or not (and how fast) such range shifts occur depends on species' dispersal capacities. In mostExpand
