Although the effects of species richness on ecosystem functioning have been extensively studied, there is increased interest in understanding how community assembly in a more general sense alters the functioning of ecosystems. We focus on two complementary approaches for evaluating how community assembly influences biomass production. The first quantifies the relative importance of complementarity and selection by contrasting monocultures with polycultures. The second identifies the effects of s...

Summary Gene flow is an enigmatic evolutionary force because it can limit adaptation but may also rescue small populations from inbreeding depression [1–3]. Several iconic examples of genetic rescue—increased population growth caused by gene flow [4, 5]—have reversed population declines [6, 7]. However, concerns about outbreeding depression and maladaptive gene flow limit the use of human-mediated gene flow in conservation [8, 9]. Rescue effects of immigration through demographic and/or genetic ...

Gene flow is an enigmatic evolutionary force because it can limit adaptation but can also help populations escape inbreeding depression. Manipulating gene flow for conservation purposes is a controversial, but potentially powerful management strategy. We use multigenerational pedigrees and genomics to test demographic and evolutionary consequences of manipulating gene flow in two isolated wild Trinidadian guppy populations. We found that on average, hybrids lived longer and reproduced more. Desp...

Experimentation at sea provides insight into which traits of ocean microbes are linked to performance in situ. Here we show distinct patterns in thermal tolerance of microbial phototrophs from adjacent water masses sampled in the south-west Pacific Ocean, determined using a fluorescent marker for reactive oxygen species (ROS). ROS content of pico-eukaryotes was assessed after 1, 5 and 25 h of incubation along a temperature gradient (15.6–32.1 °C). Pico-eukaryotes from the East Australian Current...

Biological diversity depends on the interplay between evolutionary diversification and ecological mechanisms allowing species to coexist. Current research increasingly integrates ecology and evolution over a range of timescales, but our common conceptual framework for understanding species coexistence requires better incorporation of evolutionary processes. Here, we focus on the idea of evolutionarily stable communities (ESCs), which are theoretical endpoints of evolution in a community context....

Heterocytous Cyanobacteria show high trait variation at the cellular, organismal, and population levels. Members of this group can produce specialized cells such as akinetes and heterocytes that influence their ecology, including bloom development and population survival. This study characterizes patterns of variation in the traits of these species, including the traits of specialized cells, to expand our ecological knowledge and predictive capacity for this group. We compiled and synthesized mo...

The research of a generation of ecologists was catalysed by the recognition that the number and identity of species in communities influences the functioning of ecosystems. The relationship between biodiversity and ecosystem functioning (BEF) is most often examined by controlling species richness and randomising community composition. In natural systems, biodiversity changes are often part of a bigger community assembly dynamic. Therefore, focusing on community assembly and the functioning of ec...
