Novel and disrupted trophic links following invasion in freshwater ecosystems
12 May 2017
Freshwater ecosystems are under threat from many stressors, including climate change, pollution, habitat destruction and the invasion of non-native species. These stressors can have direct impacts on individuals (e.g. survival, reproduction), populations (e.g. range, abundance) and communities (e.g. biodiversity, richness). The effects of stressors on higher levels of organisation (e.g. food webs, ecosystem functioning), however, are less well known.
