  • The stability of ecosystems under global environmental change 

    Ross, Samuel Robert (Trinity College Dublin. School of Natural Sciences. Discipline of Zoology, 2022)
    Through global environmental change, humans are modifying the planet at an unprecedented rate and scale, triggering the ongoing biodiversity and climate crises. Ecological stability and the consistency of nature s contributions ...
  • Evaluating the status and prospects of blue carbon in Ireland and the North-East Atlantic 

    Dolliver, Jessica Poppy (Trinity College Dublin. School of Natural Sciences. Discipline of Zoology, 2022)
    Since its conception in 2011, the concept of blue carbon has been valuable to focus the field of ecosystem services on carbon sequestration by marine macrophytic communities, which has been historically overlooked. In ...
  • Taxonomy and ecology of epilithic diatoms in Irish lakes 

    Kennedy, Bryan (Trinity College Dublin. School of Natural Sciences. Discipline of Zoology, 2021)
    Benthic algae are significant primary producers and important in biogeochemical cycling in shallow lakes in particular, but epilithic diatom ecology is poorly understood compared to phytoplankton and higher trophic levels. ...
  • General mechanisms for non-additivity between multiple stressors at higher temporal and biological scales 

    Orr, James (Trinity College Dublin. School of Natural Sciences. Discipline of Zoology, 2021)
    Multiple anthropogenic stressors threaten the diversity, stability and functioning of ecosystems worldwide. The combined effects of these stressors can, however, be surprisingly difficult to predict due to complex interactions ...
  • The role of helminth parasites in host invasion: a freshwater fish system 

    Tierney, Paula Angela (Trinity College Dublin. School of Natural Sciences. Discipline of Zoology, 2021)
    With the incidence of species invasions set to increase in the coming decades, it is increasingly important that research on invasive species impacts captures the complexity of natural ecosystems, including the influence ...
