    Present-day central African forest is a legacy of the 19th century human history

    Julie Morin-Rivat et al.
    The cessation of major anthropogenic disturbances since European colonization in the forests of central Africa leads to a canopy closing, and to the disappearance of certain light-demanding tree species.

    A remote sensing derived data set of 100 million individual tree crowns for the National Ecological Observatory Network

    Ben G Weinstein et al.
    A first continental data set of tree crown predictions is derived across the United States for the National Ecological Observatory Network.

    Vessel noise levels drive behavioural responses of humpback whales with implications for whale-watching

    Kate R Sprogis et al.
    Controlled exposure experiments reveal that underwater vessel noise level from a motorised vessel is an adequate driver of behavioural disturbance in humpback whales.

    Rarity is a more reliable indicator of land-use impacts on soil invertebrate communities than other diversity metrics

    Andrew Dopheide et al.
    Rarity metrics reveal pervasive negative impacts of agricultural land use on soil invertebrate communities, whereas widely-used richness and diversity metrics underestimate the magnitude of these impacts.

    Global gradients in intertidal species richness and functional groups

    Jakob Thyrring, Lloyd S Peck
    No discernible latitudinal diversity gradient in rocky intertidal α-diversity as local-scale physical and biological processes outweigh global-scale environmental gradients.

    Plant diversity maintains multiple soil functions in future environments

    Nico Eisenhauer et al.
    Empirical evidence shows that conserving local plant diversity is a robust strategy to maintain multiple valuable ecosystem services provided by soils in both present and future environmental conditions.

    Humans disrupt access to prey for large African carnivores

    Kirby L Mills, Nyeema C Harris
    The presence of humans induces behavioral modifications in many large carnivore and ungulate species, restructuring spatiotemporal relationships between African predators and their prey.

    Diversity and asynchrony in soil microbial communities stabilizes ecosystem functioning

    Cameron Wagg et al.
    Soil microbial diversity loss destabilizes the ability of the soil to function because greater diversity is needed to maintain temporal and functional asynchrony among different microbes.

    Carbon recovery dynamics following disturbance by selective logging in Amazonian forests

    Camille Piponiot et al.
    Carbon recovery in Amazonian forests disturbed by selective logging is higher in the Guiana Shield and in the west, and is mainly shaped by the carbon gain of trees that survived the disturbance.

    Combining agent-based, trait-based and demographic approaches to model coral-community dynamics

    Bruno Sylvain Carturan et al.
    A new agent-based model enables predicting how coral species richness and functional diversity affect the functioning and resilience of coral reef ecosystems.
