Long term plankton community dynamics in the face of climate change

Principal Investigators:

Elizabeth M. Wolkovich

Changing climate has brought earlier springs and later winters to most regions of the globe, with associated changes documented in many ecological communities. Research primarily has examined these community shifts in light of individual species’ environmental tolerances, and interspecific interactions. However, changes to dynamic links between spatially or temporally linked food webs may also be critical to understanding community-scale responses to climate change. Across systems winter food webs - under ice or snow - can provide key trophic... more
