  • Ecological and environmental transition across the forested-to-open bog ecotone in a west Siberian peatland

    Ratcliffe, Joshua Lee; Creevy, Angela; Andersen, Roxane; Zarov, Evgeny; Gaffney, Paul P.J.; Taggart, Mark A.; Mazei, Yuri; Tsyganov, Andrey N.; Rowson, James G.; Lapshina, Elena D.; Payne, Richard J. (Elsevier, 2017)
    Climate change may cause increasing tree cover in boreal peatlands, and the impacts of this encroachment will be noted first at forested-to-open bog ecotones. We investigate key metrics of ecosystem function in five such ...
  • A modest addendum to the english sediment core meta-database

    Woodhouse, Eleanor L.; Ratcliffe, Joshua Lee; Andersen, Roxane; Suggitt, Andrew; Maclean, Ilya; Payne, Richard J. (2017)
    Compilations of previous studies provide researchers with a source of valuable secondary data for re-analysis, an access route to identify relevant literature and an opportunity to systematically evaluate the research which ...
  • Revisiting Elton's copepods: lake construction has altered the distribution and composition of calanoid copepods in the British Isles

    Duggan, Ian C.; Payne, Richard J. (Regional Euro-Asian Biological Invasions Centre - REABIC, 2017)
    It is now widely accepted that the construction of new lakes, ponds and reservoirs facilitates the invasion of non-indigenous aquatic species, due largely to low biotic resistance from native communities. The role played ...
  • Tree encroachment may lead to functionally-significant changes in peatland testate amoeba communities

    Payne, Richard J.; Creevy, Angela; Malysheva, Elena; Ratcliffe, Joshua Lee; Andersen, Roxane; Tsyganov, Andrey N.; Rowson, James G.; Marcisz, Katarzyna; Zielinska, Małgorzata; Lamentowicz, Mariusz; Lapshina, Elena D.; Mazei, Yuri (Elsevier, 2016)
    Climate change is likely to cause increased tree recruitment on open peatlands but we currently have little idea what consequences this vegetation change may have below-ground. Here we use transects across forested to open ...
