New Special Issue: Ecological Effects of Environmental Change
Edited by: Marcel Holyoak and Michael Hochberg
Following on from the symposium on Ecological Effects of Environmental Change, held in Paris, June 2012, Ecology Letters has published its first Special Issue, which covers the diverse ecological effects of climate change. The CNRS and Ecology Letters sponsored-symposium held the aim that major contributors to the ecological effects of environmental change present and discuss their latest findings. This exciting Special Issue contains new invited Reviews and Syntheses and Ideas and Perspectives papers about the ecology of environmental change from leading researchers in the fields of global change and climate change.

From the BBC:
'Environmental change 'triggers rapid evolution', based on Ecology Letters paper Eco-evolutionary dynamics in response to selection on life-history
The paper A millennial-scale chronicle of evolutionary responses to cultural eutrophication in Daphnia has attracted the attention of global academics and researchers as discussed in The New York Times.
From National Geographic:
The paper Partner manipulation stabilises a horizontally transmitted mutualism has received widespread coverage, including by The National Geographic.
From The Guardian and more:
The paper Rates of projected climate change dramatically exceed past rates of climatic niche evolution among vertebrate species has generated widespread coverage in media including The Guardian, Rolling Stone, Science, The Scientist and Discovery News.
