Antagonistic effects of intraspecific cooperation and interspecific competition on thermal performance
Hsiang-Yu Tsai et al.
By integrating theoretical and empirical approaches, the results show that linking abiotic factor and biotic interactions on the niche width will be critical for understanding species-specific responses to climate change.
Eco-evolutionary dynamics of nested Darwinian populations and the emergence of community-level heredity
Guilhem Doulcier et al.
Artificial selection on communities drives the evolution of interactions and establishes community-level inheritance.
Temperature stress induces mites to help their carrion beetle hosts by eliminating rival blowflies
Syuan-Jyun Sun, Rebecca M Kilner
Temperature, the presence of an enemy species and the density of the mutualistic partner species interact to determine the expression of a protective mutualism.
Caterpillar-induced rice volatiles provide enemy-free space for the offspring of the brown planthopper
Xiaoyun Hu et al.
The brown planthopper has evolved a highly adaptive oviposition strategy by exploiting caterpillar-induced plant volatiles that provide safe havens for its offspring.
Pest Control: Hiding in plain smell
Youngsung Joo, Meredith C Schuman
A common rice pest can avoid its natural parasite by settling on plants that smell like they have been damaged by a species of caterpillar.
Biodiversity mediates the effects of stressors but not nutrients on litter decomposition
Léa Beaumelle et al.
The consequences of real-world biodiversity change for ecosystem functioning depend on the type of global change driver and can be particularly significant when human activities decrease biodiversity.
Diversity-decomposition relationships in forests worldwide
Liang Kou et al.
Carbon dynamics and the relative availability of key nutrients during litter decomposition are modified by changing biodiversity in the Earth’s forests.
Ecosystems: The diversity of decay
Emma J Sayer, Ralf Schäfer
To predict how species loss will affect ecosystems, it is important to consider how biodiversity influences processes such as decomposition.
Physics of Living Systems
Revealing the structure of information flows discriminates similar animal social behaviors
Gabriele Valentini et al.
Information theory reveals that apparently similar signaling behaviors in ants and termites are instead governed by distinct communication protocols explaining their underlying different functions.
Climate change and intensive land use reduce soil animal biomass via dissimilar pathways
Rui Yin et al.
Climate change and land-use intensification have negative but largely independent effects on soil animal biomass.
