Green turtle grazing and seagrass carbon capture across Caribbean meadows

Journal of Ecology recently published an exciting new research paper by Johnson et al. “Seagrass ecosystem metabolic carbon capture in response to green turtle grazing across Caribbean meadows.” Author Robert Johnson discusses this research in more detail and presents further insights into how green turtle grazing affects carbon dynamics, within seagrass ecosystems. Green turtle abundance is…

Harper Review 2016 – meet the author

This year we published the first of our annual Harper Review series. The series is named after past BES President and Journal of Ecology Editorial Board member, the late John L.

Steve Hovick – Predicting invasiveness using a multivariate experimental approach

In the next Journal of Ecology podcast I interview Steve Hovick about his paper exploring prediction of invasiveness in plants using traits based on an ordination approach, accounting simultaneously for many traits.  Check out the paper in the journal here.  This interview took place on 20 November, 2012. As always let us know what you think in the comments…

Interview with Lauren Urgenson

In the next Journal of Ecology podcast I interview Lauren Urgensonabout her paper showing that an invasive plant species (Polygonum X bohemicum; bohemian knotweed) has different effects on plants of different seral stages. Check out the paper in the journal here.  This interview took place at ESA 2012 in Portland, OR. As always let us know what you…
