Abstract Pesticide residues are found ubiquitously in Queensland east coast and Great Barrier Reef (GBR) waterbodies. The highest concentrations, often above Australian guidelines, are found adjacent to and downstream of areas of intensive cropping, largely sugarcane cultivation and horticulture. Due to the iconic status of the GBR more information on pesticide levels, risk to ecosystems and management solutions are available than in other parts of Australia. Freshwater bodies being, in general,...

Abstract Mangroves are ecosystems that are seriously threatened by climate change, particularly sea level rise and an increase of droughts. They are resilient to short droughts but their response to longer ones remains arguable. In this work, we studied the responses of R. mangle dominated forests on a carbonate island (El Rosario Island) to climate anomalies and their drivers at inter-annual, decadal and inter-decadal scales during the last centuries. Palynological analysis of a sediment core r...

Abstract Rising temperatures due to climate change are expected to drive shifts in species composition, phenological patterns and the productivity of mangrove trees. During early life history stages, such as dispersal and settlement, temperature may affect the survival of propagules and, consequently, drive the distribution of mangrove species. The aim of this work was to evaluate whether low water and air temperatures experienced by propagules during the dispersal and settlement stages, respect...

Abstract Microbially-colonized sediments tend to be more resistant to erosional events than mostly abiotic sediments. However, the effect of complex microbial associations, such as microbial mats over sediments and the protection they offer, has not been extensively explored partly due to the difficulty that studies considering the consortia in toto pose. This difficulty prompts the gathering of an approximation to rheological properties of microbially-colonized sediments mostly through lab cult...

Abstract The Rhone river represents the most important source of freshwater, nutrients and organic matter to the northwestern (NW) Mediterranean Sea and riverine input markedly affects biogeochemistry and ecosystem functioning in the estuarine and coastal zone. Structures of low salinity waters (LSW) originating near the river plume can also be transported along the continental shelf and offshore. The objective of the present study was to investigate the influence of LSW distant from their sourc...

Abstract Coastal lagoons are important aquatic systems with strong physicochemical gradients, where the participation of microorganisms in biogeochemical cycles has been well recognised; however, to date, the microbial diversity and distribution in these environments remains under-investigated. Here, three distinguished regions (oligohaline, marine and the mixing) of a transitional coastal lagoon were explored to characterise the structure and composition of benthic microbial communities through...

Abstract In response to increasing greenhouse gases emissions, the global climate is undoubtedly changing. As a consequence of rising temperatures, mean sea level also shows an increasing tendency globally, still, uncertainties in relation to its regional specific trends can be identified. Besides that, uncertainties also remain regarding regional and local coastal response to sea level rise. Coastal geomorphology (topography, bathymetry, and sediment texture) plays a relevant role, especially i...

Abstract A comprehensive analytical screening has been applied for the first time to surficial sediment samples collected from seven lagoons of the Po River Delta. This screening has been used to gain further insights into the exposure conditions potentially present in the Po lagoons. Despite a certain degree of variability was observable within the lagoons, this study confirmed the general tendency that the northernmost Caleri lagoon is less contaminated than the other lagoons of the delta, whi...

Abstract Reef fish resources provide numerous ecosystem services in the northern Gulf of Mexico (nGOM) large marine ecosystem. Artificial reefs (ARs) have been distributed across the nGOM in attempts to enhance reef fish habitat and increase fishery productivity, but few data exist to distinguish ecological from fishery functions of ARs compared to natural reefs (NRs), particularly at the regional scale. Therefore, we conducted remotely operated vehicle surveys of reef fish communities at 47 ree...

Abstract High-resolution ecological databases are only rarely available for tropical estuaries, so details of their ecological variability are often poorly understood. We studied twelve hours of continuous variability salinity, water temperature, pH, dissolved oxygen, NO3–N, and the copepod community (size > 200 μm) of the Ganges River Estuary (GRE) of India. We hypothesized that short-term environmental variability affects copepod community and its most and least abundant populations. We record...
