Urban ponds as an aquatic biodiversity resource in modified landscapes

Journal Article
Hill, M. J., Biggs, J., Thornhill, I., Briers, R. A., Gledhill, D. G., White, J. C., …Hassall, C. (2017)
Urban ponds as an aquatic biodiversity resource in modified landscapes. Global Change Biology, 23(3), 986-999. https://doi.org/10.1111/gcb.13401

Mangroves in Kenya provide a wide range of valuable services to coastal communities despite their relatively small total area. Studies at single sites show reductions in exten...

The lateral extent of the subsidy from an upland stream to riparian lycosid spiders

Journal Article
Briers, R. A., Cariss, H. M., Geoghegan, R., & Gee, J. H. R. (2005)
The lateral extent of the subsidy from an upland stream to riparian lycosid spiders. Ecography, 28(2), 165-170. doi:10.1111/j.0906-7590.2005.04020.x
Adult aquatic insects emerging from streams can subsidize riparian food webs, but little is known of the spatial extent of these subsidies. Stable isotope (15N) enrichment of ...
