4. Flip it and reverse it: reasonable changes in designated controls can flip synergisms to antagonisms.

Ecological systems are subjected to multiple stressors that can interact in complex ways resulting in "ecological surprises". We examine the pivotal role of 'control' assignment in the categorization of stressors into five classes: additive, +synergistic, -synergistic, +antagonistic, and...

6. Monoterpene enrichments have positive impacts on soil bacterial communities and the potential of application in bioremediation.

We study here how soil bacterial communities of different ecosystems respond to disturbances caused by enrichments with monoterpenes that are common essential oil constituents. We used fenchone, 1,8-cineol and α-pinene, and soils from phrygana, a typical Mediterranean-type ecosystem where aromatic...

15. Exploring interaction effects from mechanisms between climate and land-use changes and the projected consequences on biodiversity.

Changes in climate and land use are major drivers of biodiversity loss. These drivers likely interact and their mutual effects alter biodiversity. These interaction mechanisms are rarely considered in biodiversity assessments, as only the combined individual effects are reported. In this study, we...
