Temporal pesticide dynamics alter specific eukaryotic taxa in a coastal transition zone

Vincent Hervé, Pierre Sabatier, Josie Lambourdière, Jérôme Poulenard and Pascal Jean Lopez

  • Land use change alters the rates of sediment transport, which in turn modifies biodiversity in coastal transition zones.
  • Read abundance, alpha and beta diversity of eukaryotes are influenced by sedimentation regime and pesticide fluxes.
  • Members of the green and brown food communities present contrasting temporal dynamics over two last decades.
  • Shift in the sedimentation regime related to glyphosate use differentially impacts the coastal microeukaryotic communities.
