Tropical forests host a rich diversity of plant and animal life and process vast amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2). Therefore, researchers have been particularly interested in how these ecosystems might be affected by climate change. Some have hypothesized that the rise in atmospheric CO2 is promoting carbon uptake by these forests, making them important carbon sinks. Evidence is mounting, however, that the balance of cost and benefit is reaching a tipping point, and global warming will soon...

Shallow lake ecosystems can shift from a clear-water state dominated by macrophytes (good state) to a turbid state dominated by phytoplankton (nuisance state), with loss of key functions and services. The alternative states shift could be due to multiple stressors, such as climate change, eutrophication and alteration in fish communities. However, whether climate warming with other stressors interactively affect macrophytes and trigger regime shifts remains unexplored.
