  • Changes in ecosystem function across sedimentary gradients in estuaries

    Pratt, Daniel Robert; Lohrer, Andrew M.; Pilditch, Conrad A.; Thrush, Simon F. (Springer, 2014)
    The input of terrestrial silt and clay (hereafter mud) into coastal environments can alter sediment grain size distribution affecting the structure and functioning of benthic communities. The relationship between sediment ...
  • Context-specific bioturbation mediates changes to ecosystem functioning

    Needham, Hazel Rosemary; Pilditch, Conrad A.; Lohrer, Andrew M.; Thrush, Simon F. (Springer, 2011)
    Species are often grouped according to their biological or functional traits to better understand their contribution to ecosystem functioning. However, it is becoming clear that a single species can perform different roles ...
  • Density and habitat dependent effects of crab burrows on sediment erodibility

    Needham, Hazel Rosemary; Pilditch, Conrad A.; Lohrer, Andrew M.; Thrush, Simon F. (Elsevier, 2013)
    Despite biological interactions being highlighted as a key process in determining particle fluxes, relatively few studies have attempted to establish the links between burrow building bioturbators and sediment stability. ...
  • Detecting subtle shifts in ecosystem functioning in a dynamic estuarine environment

    Pratt, Daniel Robert; Lohrer, Andrew M.; Thrush, Simon F.; Hewitt, Judi E.; Townsend, Michael; Cartner, Katie; Pilditch, Conrad A.; Harris, Rachel Joy; van Colen, Carl; Rodil, Iván F. (Public Library of Science, 2015)
    Identifying the effects of stressors before they impact ecosystem functioning can be challenging in dynamic, heterogeneous ‘real-world’ ecosystems. In aquatic systems, for example, reductions in water clarity can limit the ...
  • Effect of nutrient enrichment and turbidity on interactions between Microphytobenthos and a key bivalve: implications for higher trophic levels

    Hope, Julie A.; Hewitt, Judi E.; Pilditch, Conrad A.; Savage, Candida; Thrush, Simon F. (Frontiers Media SA, 2020)
    Benthic diatoms are a high-quality food resource providing essential fatty acids to benthic grazers. Different stressors may alter the proportion of diatoms and other microalgae and thus can affect the quality as well as ...
