  1. Content type: Research Article

    Species richness affects processes and functions in many ecosystems. Since management of temperate grasslands is directly affecting species composition and richness, it can indirectly govern how systems respon...

    Authors: Carsten F. Dormann, Lars von Riedmatten and Michael Scherer-Lorenzen

    Citation: BMC Ecology 2017 17:23

    Published on:

  2. Content type: Research article

    Human food subsidies can provide predictable food sources in large quantities for wildlife species worldwide. In the boreal forest of Fennoscandia, gut piles from moose (Alces alces) harvest provide a potentially...

    Authors: Gjermund Gomo, Jenny Mattisson, Bjørn Roar Hagen, Pål Fossland Moa and Tomas Willebrand

    Citation: BMC Ecology 2017 17:22

    Published on:

  3. Content type: Research article

    Understanding how species adapt to new niches is a central issue in evolutionary ecology. Nutrition is vital for the survival of all organisms and impacts species fitness and distribution. While most Drosophila s...

    Authors: Nuno F. Silva-Soares, A. Nogueira-Alves, P. Beldade and Christen Kerry Mirth

    Citation: BMC Ecology 2017 17:21

    Published on:

  4. Content type: Research article

    Mass occurrences of cyanobacteria frequently cause detrimental effects to the functioning of aquatic ecosystems. Consequently, attempts haven been made to control cyanobacterial blooms through naturally co-occ...

    Authors: Sophie Groendahl and Patrick Fink

    Citation: BMC Ecology 2017 17:20

    Published on:

  5. Content type: Research Article

    Habitat fragmentation is considered to be a main reason for decreasing genetic diversity of plant species. However, the results of many fragmentation studies are inconsistent. This may be due to the influence ...

    Authors: Christoph Reisch, Sonja Schmidkonz, Katrin Meier, Quirin Schöpplein, Carina Meyer, Christian Hums, Christina Putz and Christoph Schmid

    Citation: BMC Ecology 2017 17:19

    Published on:

  6. Content type: Research Article

    Understanding whether species’ elevational range is shifting in response to directional changes in climate and whether there is a predictable pattern in that response is one of the major challenges in ecology....

    Authors: Zhixin Wen, Yi Wu, Deyan Ge, Jilong Cheng, Yongbin Chang, Zhisong Yang, Lin Xia and Qisen Yang

    Citation: BMC Ecology 2017 17:17

    Published on:

  7. Content type: Research Article

    Rodents of the genus Rattus are among the most pervasive and successful invasive species, causing major vicissitudes in native ecological communities. A broad and flexible generalist diet has been suggested as ke...

    Authors: Melanie Dammhahn, Toky M. Randriamoria and Steven M. Goodman

    Citation: BMC Ecology 2017 17:16

    Published on:

  8. Content type: Research Article

    Establishing populations in ecologically marginal habitats may require substantial phenotypic changes that come about through phenotypic plasticity, local adaptation, or both. West-Eberhard’s “plasticity-first...

    Authors: Daniel Johansson, Ricardo T. Pereyra, Marina Rafajlović and Kerstin Johannesson

    Citation: BMC Ecology 2017 17:14

    Published on:

  9. Content type: Research article

    Species recovery after disturbances depends on the strength and duration of disturbance, on the species traits and on the biotic interactions with other species. In order to understand these complex relationsh...

    Authors: Canan Karakoç, Alexander Singer, Karin Johst, Hauke Harms and Antonis Chatzinotas

    Citation: BMC Ecology 2017 17:13

    Published on:

  10. Content type: Research article

    At high densities, terrestrial and marine species often employ alternate reproductive tactics (ARTs) to maximize reproductive benefits. We describe ARTs in a high-density and unfished spawning aggregation of t...

    Authors: Rucha Karkarey, Amod Zambre, Kavita Isvaran and Rohan Arthur

    Citation: BMC Ecology 2017 17:10

    Published on:

  11. Content type: Research article

    In Europe, bank voles (Myodes glareolus) are widely distributed and can transmit Puumala virus (PUUV) to humans, which causes a mild to moderate form of haemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome, called nephropathia...

    Authors: Daniela Reil, Ulrike M. Rosenfeld, Christian Imholt, Sabrina Schmidt, Rainer G. Ulrich, Jana A. Eccard and Jens Jacob

    Citation: BMC Ecology 2017 17:9

    Published on:

  12. Content type: Research article

    Insect pollinators play an important role in crop pollination, but the relative contribution of wild pollinators and honey bees to pollination is currently under debate. There is virtually no information avail...

    Authors: Yi Zou, Haijun Xiao, Felix J. J. A. Bianchi, Frank Jauker, Shudong Luo and Wopke van der Werf

    Citation: BMC Ecology 2017 17:6

    Published on:

  13. Content type: Research article

    Herbivore-induced changes in plant traits can cause indirect interactions between spatially and/or temporally separated herbivores that share the same host plant. Feeding modes of the herbivores is one of the ...

    Citation: BMC Ecology 2017 17:5

    Published on:

  14. Content type: Research article

    Plant-parasitic nematodes (PPN) are major crop pests. On olive (Olea europaea), they significantly contribute to economic losses in the top-ten olive producing countries in the world especially in nurseries and u...
