  • Eutrophication and Geochemistry Drive Pelagic Calcite Precipitation in Lakes 

    Khan, Hares; Laas, Alo; Marcé, Rafael; Sepp, Margot; Obrador, Biel (MDPI, 2021)
    Pelagic calcification shapes the carbon budget of lakes and the sensitivity of dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) responses to lake metabolism. This process, being tightly linked to primary production, needs to be understood ...
  • A proposed order-level classification in Oligochaeta (Annelida, Clitellata) 

    Schmelz, Rüdiger M.; Erséus, Christer; Martin, Patrick; Van Haaren, Ton; Timm, Tarmo (Magnolia Press, 2021)
    The purpose of our contribution is to propose a robust and practical order-level classification of the families of Oligochaeta, that is, non-leech Clitellata. The order level is mandatory in Linnaean rank-based classification ...
