Data from: An in situ approach for measuring biogeochemical fluxes in structurally complex benthic communitiesFlorian Roth, Christian Wild, Susana Carvalho, Nils Rädecker, Christian R. Voolstra, Benjamin Kurten, Holger Anlauf, Yusuf C. El-Khaled, Ronan Carolan, Burton H. Jones & Yusuf C. El‐Khaled
1. The exchange of energy and nutrients are integral components of ecological functions of benthic shallow-water ecosystems and are directly dependent on in situ environmental conditions. Traditional laboratory experiments cannot account for the multidimensionality of interacting processes when assessing metabolic rates and biogeochemical fluxes of structurally complex benthic communities. Current in situ chamber systems are expensive, limited in their functionality, and the deployment is often restricted to planar habitats (e.g., sediments or seagrass meadows) only....
Data from: With Ellenberg indicator values towards the north: does the indicative power decrease with distance from Central Europe?Per-Ola Hedwall, Jörg Brunet & Martin Diekmann
Aim: Ellenberg indicator values (EIV) are frequently used in regions outside their Central European origin as proxies for environmental conditions, a practice further boosted by the increasing scientific focus on global change. The performance of EIV outside their geographic origin and over long gradients has, however, rarely been tested. The aim of this study was to evaluate if the indicative power of EIV changes over a large geographic gradient and to analyze the potential causes...
Data from: High ecosystem service delivery potential of small woodlands in agricultural landscapesAlicia Valdés, Jonathan Lenoir, Pieter De Frenne, Emilie Andrieu, Jorg Brunet, Olivier Chabrerie, Sara Cousins, Marc Deconchat, Pallieter De Smedt, Martin Diekmann, Steffen Ehrmann, Emilie Gallet-Moron, Stefanie Gaertner, Brice Giffard, Karin Hansen, Martin Hermy, Annette Kolb, Vincent Leroux, Jaan Liira, Jessica Lindgren, Ludmilla Martin, Tobias Naaf, Taavi Paal, Willem Proesmans, Michael Scherer-Lorenzen … & Guillaume Decocq
Global forest loss and fragmentation have strongly increased the frequency of forest patches smaller than a few hectares. Little is known about the biodiversity and ecosystem service supply potential of such small woodlands in comparison to larger forests. As it is widely recognized that high biodiversity levels increase ecosystem functionality and the delivery of multiple ecosystem services, small, isolated woodlands are expected to have a lower potential for ecosystem service delivery than large forests hosting...
Egg laying rather than host quality or host feeding experience drives habitat estimation in the parasitic wasp Nasonia vitripennisMareike Koppik, Andra Thiel & Thomas S. Hoffmeister
In variable environments, sampling information on habitat quality is essential for making adaptive foraging decisions. In insect parasitoids, females foraging for hosts have repeatedly been shown to employ behavioral strategies that are in line with predictions from optimal foraging models. Yet, which cues exactly are employed to sample information on habitat quality, has rarely been investigated. Using the gregarious parasitoid Nasonia vitripennis (Walker) (Hymenoptera: Pteromalidae), we provided females with different cues about hosts to elucidate,...
