Rivers play an important role in our environment: regulating flood risks, transporting sediments and supporting biodiversity. Many of these services are linked to factors that indicate river health such as river flow and connectivity.

Abstract Animal migrations are of global ecological significance, providing mechanisms for the transport of nutrients and energy between distant locations. In much of the deep sea (> 200 m water depth) the export of nutrients from the surface ocean provides a crucial but seasonally‐variable energy source to seafloor ecosystems. Seasonal faunal migrations have been hypothesised […]
