Eutrophic status influences the impact of pesticide mixtures and predation on Daphnia pulex populations

Andreu Rico, Talles Oliveira Dos Anjos, Francesco Polazzo, Alba Arenas-Sánchez, Laura Cherta, Roberto Ascari, Sonia Migliorati & Marco Vighi
Pesticides, nutrients, and ecological stressors such as competition or predation co-occur in freshwater ecosystems impacted by agricultural pollution. The extent to which combinations of these stressors affect aquatic populations and the role of nutrients availability in modulating these responses requires further understanding. In this study, we assessed how pesticides affecting different taxonomic groups and predation influence the response of Daphnia pulex populations under different trophic conditions. An outdoor experiment was designed following a factorial design,...

Combining conservation status and species distribution models for planning assisted colonisation under climate change

Effects of climate change are particularly important in the Mediterranean Biodiversity hotspot where rising temperatures and drought are negatively affecting several plant taxa, including endemic species. Assisted Colonisation (AC) represents a useful tool for reducing the effect of climate change on endemic plant species threatened by climate change. We combined SDMs for 188 taxa endemic to Italy with the IUCN red listing range loss threshold under criterion A (30%) to define: a) the number of...
