Micro and Macroscale Drivers of Nutrient Concentrations in Urban Streams in South, Central and North America

Global metrics of land cover and land use provide a fundamental basis to examine the spatial variability of human-induced impacts on freshwater ecosystems. However, microscale processes and site specific conditions related to bank vegetation, pollution sources, adjacent land use and water uses can have important influences on ecosystem conditions, in particular in smaller...

Absence of a prezygotic behavioural barrier to gene flow between the two sympatric morphs of the squat lobster Munida gregaria (Fabricius, 1793) (Decapoda: Anomura: Galatheidae)

Munida gregaria and M. subrugosa have been considered two different species for more than a century; however, after a recent molecular phylogenetic study, they are considered a single polymorphic species. Yet, the use of markers to diagnose species may be misleading when divergence between species is recent, since a speciation event may be obscured by the retention and stochastic...

Dual control of the levels of photoprotective compounds by ultraviolet radiation and temperature in the freshwater copepod Boeckella antiqua

Photoprotective compounds (PPCs), such as carotenoids and mycosporine-like amino acids (MAAs), confer photoprotection to aquatic organisms against harmful ultraviolet-B (UVB) radiation. The natural variability of these compounds in zooplankton has been related to temperature, radiation and diet, but the ultimate mechanisms regulating the observed patterns in the field are still...
