Announcing the 2023 L&O Special Issue on climate change

Cascading, interactive, and indirect effects of climate change on aquatic communities, habitats, and ecosystems Climate change is rapidly altering the biogeochemistry and physical forcing of aquatic environments; however, quantifying and predicting the effects of these changes on aquatic organisms remains a major and pressing challenge. While changing seawater chemistry and temperature have been shown to have profound direct effects on aquatic organisms, our insight into feedbacks and indirect and interactive …

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 …
