1. Towards understanding organic matter fluxes and reactivity in surface waters: filtering impact on DOC and POC degradation.

Peatlands cover a very small area of the Earth, but store globally significant quantities of carbon and export disproportionate quantities of fluvial organic carbon, especially when the peatlands are degraded or disturbed. Peatland headwater catchments with high concentrations of dissolved and...

5. Short-term effects of thin-layer sand placement on salt marsh grasses: a marsh organ field experiment.

Salt marshes can build in elevation with sea-level rise through accumulation of inorganic sediment and organic matter, but marshes worldwide are under threat of drowning due to rapid rates of sea-level rise that outpace natural marsh building rates. The application of a thin layer of sediment to...

7. Management recommendations based on physical forces driving land-covers and habitat preferences of polychaete and bird assemblages for a mangrove-vegetated estuary.

Mangrove overexpansion monopolizes estuarine landscapes by diminishing land-cover type diversity and hence biodiversity. Preferences of land-cover types by polychaete and bird assemblages as they relate to associated physical driving forces warrant investigation. In a mangrove-vegetated nature...

12. Estimation of soil carbon stocks of urban freshwater wetlands in the Colombo ramsar wetland city and their potential role in climate change mitigation.

Wetlands hold significant potential for climate change mitigation due to their high capacity to sequester atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO2). Colombo, Sri Lanka was recently declared as one of the eighteen global Ramsar wetland cities. The current study represents the first attempt to quantify soil...

13. New insights into the influence of plant and microbial diversity on denitrification rates in a salt marsh.

Coastal salt marshes are some of the most productive ecosystems on Earth, providing numerous services such as soil carbon storage, flood protection and nutrient filtering, several of which are mediated by the sediment microbiome associated with marsh vegetation. Here, nutrient filtering (nitrate...

14. Economic valuation of the ecosystem services provided by the mangroves of the gulf of Nicoya using a hybrid methodology.

Due to the public good nature of many of mangrove's ecosystem services, markets for them do not exist and there is limited potential to manage them with conventional markets. Moreover, because of the difficulties in estimating the value of these non-marketed services, mangroves are often...

16. Sea level-driven marsh migration results in rapid net loss of carbon.

Sea level rise alters coastal carbon cycling by driving the rapid migration of coastal ecosystems, salinization of freshwater systems, and replacement of terrestrial forests with tidal wetlands. Wetland soils accumulate carbon (C) at faster rates than terrestrial soils, implying that sea level rise ...

17. Mean residence time of lagoons in shallow vegetated floodplains.

Lagoons interspersed within wetlands are expected to increase the residence time of the flow in the system which, in turn, will lead to enhanced pollutant removal thus ensuring a good ecological status of the ecosystem. In this study, lagoons interspersed in vegetated wetlands have been mimicked in ...
