Economic mapping and assessment of Cymodocea nodosa meadows as nursery grounds for commercially important fish species. A case study in the Canary Islands
03. September 2021 Case Study
One Ecosystem 6: e70919 DOI: 10.3897/oneeco.6.e70919 Authors: Enrique Casas, Laura Martín-García, Francisco Otero-Ferrer, Fernando Tuya, Ricardo Haroun, Manuel Arbelo Abstract: Cymodocea nodosa seagrass meadows provide several socio-economically ecosystem services, including nurseries for numerous species of commercial interest. These seagrasses are experiencing a worldwide decline, with global loss rates approaching 5% per year, mainly related to coastal human activities. Cymodocea nodosa, the predominant seagrass in the Canary Archipelago (Spain), is also exposed to...
Morphological features, productivity and pollution state of abandoned agricultural soils in the Russian Arctic (Yamal Region)
09. August 2021 Research Article
One Ecosystem 6: e68408 DOI: 10.3897/oneeco.6.e68408 Authors: Timur Nizamutdinov, Evgeny Abakumov, Evgeniya Morgun Abstract: Recently, questions about the return of the concept of Arctic agriculture in order to promote sustainable development of the northern regions and ensure food security have been raised more often. The re-involvement of previously-used and abandoned soils into agricultural usage can provide an essential contribution for the development of the Arctic regions. We conducted a comprehensive research of soils with different levels of abandonment in the...
A protocol for modelling generalised biological responses using latent variables in structural equation models
08. Juli 2021 Review Article
One Ecosystem 6: e67320 DOI: 10.3897/oneeco.6.e67320 Authors: James Grace, Magdalena Steiner Abstract: In this paper, we consider the problem of how to quantitatively characterise the degree to which a study object exhibits a generalised response. By generalised response, we mean a multivariate response where numerous individual properties change in concerted fashion due to some internal integration. In latent variable structural equation modelling (LVSEM), we would typically approach this situation using a latent variable to represent a general property of interest (e.g...
Organic matter temporal dynamics in the river ecosystem basin using remote sensing
06. Juli 2021 Research Article
One Ecosystem 6: e61357 DOI: 10.3897/oneeco.6.e61357 Authors: Tatiana Trifonova, Natalia Mishchenko, Pavel Shutov Abstract: Environmental research addresses ecosystems of various hierarchical levels. One of the ecosystem types is the river basin. The basin approach has been applied in the research. We consider the river basin as a single ecosystem of complex landscape structure. The research objective was to assess the biological processes in various landscapes within a holistic natural geosystem – a catchment area. The Klyazma River Basin (a part of the Volga River of 40...

Valuation of kelp forest ecosystem services in the Falkland Islands: A case study integrating blue carbon sequestration potential
14. Mai 2021 Research Article
One Ecosystem 6: e62811 DOI: 10.3897/oneeco.6.e62811 Authors: Daniel Bayley, Paul Brickle, Paul Brewin, Neil Golding, Tara Pelembe Abstract: Kelp forests provide many important ecosystem services to people, including mitigating storm damage, cycling nutrients, and providing commercially-harvestable resources. However, kelp forests’ ability to sequester carbon dioxide, and therefore help regulate the climate, has until recently, been overlooked in assessments of the beneficial services they provide. In this study we incorporate updated knowledge on the potential of kelp to...

Mapping the natural heritage as a source of recreation services at national scale in Bulgaria
29. September 2020 Research Article
One Ecosystem 5: e54621 DOI: 10.3897/oneeco.5.e54621 Authors: Ivo Ihtimanski, Stoyan Nedkov, Lidiya Semerdzhieva Abstract: Natural heritage includes natural features or natural areas of outstanding universal value. At a national level, this value refers to the importance of ecosystems which can be considered as the spatial units representing the natural heritage of the particular area in terms of their values to people. Nature-based outdoor recreation represents an important service that interests millions of people and contributes to connecting them to nature, but it may...
