    Author : Peter Eklöv; Gary G. Mittelbach; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; predator-prey interactions; behavioural flexibility; habitat complexity; foraging mode; sit-and-wait; group foraging; Perea fluviatilis; Esox lucius; Rutilus rutilus; size-structured interactions; species-specific antipredator behaviour; proximate cues; habitat distribution; temporal patterns;

  2. 2. Fish population responses to climate change : Causes and consequences

    Author : Matilda L. Andersson; Peter Eklöv; Brian Hayden; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; browning; climate change; DOC; intraspecific variation; metabolism; resource use; warming;

    Abstract : Lake environments are heterogeneous, and animals show a variety of adaptations to deal with this heterogeneity. Fish often show intraspecific variation in diet, metabolism, and behavior, corresponding to their habitat use. READ MORE

  3. 3. Ecology across Boundaries : Food web coupling among and within ecosystems

    Author : Pia Bartels; Peter Eklöv; Lars J. Tranvik; Daniel E. Schindler; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; cross-ecosystem; food web; habitat coupling; terrestrial-aquatic linkages; subsidy; allochthonous; lake ecosystem; population divergence; trait variation; Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; Terrestrisk; limnisk och marin ekologi; Freshwater ecology; Limnisk ekologi; Biology; Biologi; Biologi med inriktning mot limnologi; Biology with specialization in Limnology;

    Abstract : Cross-boundary movements of energy and material are ubiquitous. Freshwater ecosystems receive nutrients, dissolved, and particulate organic matter from adjacent terrestrial ecosystems, whereas terrestrial ecosystems mainly receive prey organisms and detritus deposited by physical processes such as floods from freshwater ecosystems.

  4. 4. Bottom-up and top-down regulation of heterogeneous lake food webs

    Author : Fernando Chaguaceda; Peter Eklöv; Kristin Scharnweber; Lars Tranvik; Blake Matthews; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; food webs; resource coupling; ontogenetic diet shifts; resource specialization; bottom-up; top-down; browning; eutrophication; lake; mesocosms; fatty acids; apparent competition; Biology with specialization in Limnology; Biologi med inriktning mot limnologi;

    Abstract : Food webs are networks of organisms linked by trophic interactions that regulate the responses of ecosystems to environmental change. Such regulation is a result of the effects of resources on the abundance of their consumers (i.e. bottom-up effects) and/or the influence of consumers on the abundance of their resources (i.

  5. 5. Climate change impacts on production and dynamics of fish populations

    Author : Per Hedström; Pär Byström; Jan Karlsson; Peter Eklöv; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Temperature; terrestrial dissolved organic carbon; light extinction; GPP; recruitment; winter mortality; metabolism; cohort competition; fish production; fish biomass;

    Abstract : Ongoing climate change is predicted to increase water temperatures and export of terrestrial dissolved matter (TDOM) to aquatic ecosystems influencing ecosystem productivity, food web dynamics and production of top consumers. Ecosystem productivity is mainly determined by the rates of primary production (GPP) in turn controlled by nutrients, light availability and temperature, while temperature alone affect vital rates like consumption and metabolic rates and maintenance requirements of consumers.
