Ecology has to do with interactions in nature. It is the study of how organisms (such as animals, plants and microorganisms) live and work within their habitats, and of how they depend on each other and their surrounding environments. Environmental factors may range from weather, climate, and soil to topography and ocean currents.
Umeå researchers show that carbon emissions from rivers and lakes exceed coal exports to the Arctic Ocean.
Maria Myrstener shows that this has the potential to decrease primary productivity of these ecosystems.
This has been shown by researchers in a new study published in “Environmental Research Letters”.
