Effect of Anthropogenic Disturbance on Floristic Homogenization in the Floodplain Landscape: Insights from the Taxonomic and Functional Perspectives
Anthropogenic disturbances pose significant threats to biodiversity. However, limited information has been acquired regarding the degree of impact human disturbance has on the β-diversity of plant
Specific indicator invertebrates of urbanized habitats in tributary streams of the Luján River basin (Buenos Aires, Argentina)
The increase of urbanized areas produces disturbances in rivers and streams, and its widespread effects reduce water quality and threaten aquatic biota. The aim of this study was to analyze changes
Enhancing urban and sub-urban riparian areas through ecosystem services and ecotourism activities
Riparian ecosystems in urban environments are usually degraded. Their sustainable management can reduce water pollution, mitigate climate change while providing recreation opportunities. This study
Placed-based interpretation of the sustainable development goals for the land-river interface
The land–river interface (LRI) is important for sustainable development. The environmental processes that define the LRI support the natural capital and ecosystem services that are linked directly to
Application of Polyaluminium Chloride Coagulant in Urban River Water Treatment Influenced the Microbial Community in River Sediment
Polyaluminium chloride (PAC) has been widely used as a chemical coagulant in water treatment. However, little is known about the impact of PAC performance on the microbial community in sediments. In

Multiple stressors in coupled river–floodplain ecosystems
SUMMARY 1. Riverine floodplains are highly complex, dynamic and diverse ecosystems. At the same time they are among the world’s most threatened ecosystems because of the pervasiveness of dams, levees
Net effects of multiple stressors in freshwater ecosystems: a meta‐analysis
A possible explanation for more antagonistic responses by freshwater biota to stressors is that the inherent greater environmental variability of smaller aquatic ecosystems fosters greater potential for acclimation and co-adaptation to multiple stressors.
Multiple stressors in freshwater ecosystems
Summary 1. The fundamental importance of freshwater resources, the rapid extinction rate among freshwater species and the pronounced sensitivity of freshwater ecosystems to climate change together
Effects of Emerging Contaminants on Biodiversity, Community Structure, and Adaptation of River Biota
Most river ecosystems are under the joint effects of co-occurring stressors, and attributing the mechanisms by which multiple stressors interact and produce individual and combined effects can be
Assessing and conserving groundwater biodiversity: synthesis and perspectives
Summary 1. This paper is a synthesis of a special issue on groundwater biodiversity with a focus on obligate subterranean species, the stygobionts. The series of papers constitutes a great leap
Big data opportunities and challenges for assessing multiple stressors across scales in aquatic ecosystems
A conceptual framework for assessing multiple stressors across ecosystems using emerging sources of big data is introduced and a range of available big-data types that could support models formultiple stressors are critiqued.
Urbanization effects on stream fish assemblages in Maryland, USA
Abstract We examined patterns in Maryland fish assemblages in 1st- through 3rd-order nontidal streams along an urbanization gradient in the Eastern Piedmont (EP) and Coastal Plain (CP) physiographic
Impact of urbanization on coastal wetland structure and function
Urbanization is a major cause of loss of coastal wetlands. Urbanization also exerts significant influences on the structure and function of coastal wetlands, mainly through modifying the hydrological
The ecological significance of exchange processes between rivers and groundwater
1. This review focuses on the connectivity between river and groundwater ecosystems, viewing them as linked components of a hydrological continuum. Ecological processes that maintain the integrity of
