L&O Special Issue – Mesocosms: bridging the gap between in-situ and laboratory studies

In a rapidly changing world, it is crucial that we examine the responses of aquatic organisms across the scales of individuals, communities, and trophic levels, on time scales relevant for responses to environmental change. Laboratory studies allow us to develop mechanistic understandings on individual organisms or groups thereof but are often limited in their ecological realism. In situ observations yield important information on environments in their current state but cannot […]

L&O Special Issue: Autonomous Instrumentation and Big Data: New Windows, Knowledge, and Breakthroughs in the Aquatic Sciences

  The development and deployment of autonomous instrumentation in the aquatic sciences, which has rapidly expanded during the last decade, has led to fantastic new insight into unexplored waters, increased understanding of temporal and spatial dynamics, and amazing discoveries across the aquatic sciences. These tools have allowed us to acquire more data, at higher frequency in time and space, and at a lower cost. Sensors deployed on gliders, autonomous underwater

L&O Special Issue: Carbon sequestration in aquatic ecosystems

Announcing the 2022 Limnology and Oceanography Special Issue Manuscripts due 1 October, 2021 Aquatic ecosystems from headwater streams to the deep ocean play a major role in the global carbon cycle. Long term carbon sequestration occurs through a variety of mechanisms in sediments of natural and artificial lakes, wetlands, estuaries, coastal vegetated habitats, and marine systems. Natural and anthropogenic carbon can also be stored as dissolved inorganic or organic carbon

Special Issue on Linking Metagenomics to Aquatic Microbial Ecology and Biogeochemical Cycles

A general aim of microbial ecology is to observe, understand, and predict the distribution and interactions of microorganisms in the context of environmental conditions. Taxonomic profiling of different microbial communities often reveals significant but unexplained variations across aquatic environments both in space and time. Functional differences among organisms are often invoked as an explanation; and variation in gene content (assessed by metagenomics) often reveals dynamic relationships between metabolic pathways and

Special Issue on Microplastics in marine and freshwater organisms: Presence and potential effects

Microplastics and microfibers (hereafter referred to as “microplastics”) are a pressing threat to aquatic ecosystems and have been the topic of much recent research. This research has documented quantities and locations of microplastic accumulation in many marine and freshwater environments. However, an important emerging topic is the extent to which these microplastics are making their way into the aquatic organisms that inhabit these environments and the potential consequences of their
