We sampled the water column of the Dendre stone pit lake (Belgium) in spring, summer, autumn and winter. Depth profiles of several physico-chemical variables, nutrients, dissolved gases (CO2, CH4, N2O), sulfate, sulfide, iron and manganese concentrations and d13C-CH4 were determined. We performed incubation experiments to quantify CH4 oxidation rates, with a focus on anaerobic CH4 oxidation (AOM), without and with an inhibitor of sulfate reduction (molybdate). The evolution of nitrate and sulfate concentrations during the incubations was monitored. The water column was anoxic below 20 m throughout the year, and was thermally stratified in summer and autumn. High partial pressure of CO2 and CH4 and high concentrations of ammonium and phosphate were observed in anoxic waters. Important nitrous oxide and nitrate concentration maxima were also observed (up to 440 nmol L- 1 and 80 mmol L -1, respectively). Vertical profiles of d13C-CH4 unambiguously showed the occurrence of AOM. Important AOM rates (up to 14 mmol L -1 d- 1) were observed and often co-occurred with nitrate consumption peaks, suggesting the occurrence of AOM coupled with nitrate reduction. AOM coupled with sulfate reduction also occurred, since AOM rates tended to be lower when molybdate was added. CH4 oxidation was mostly aerobic (~80% of total oxidation) in spring and winter, and almost exclusively anaerobic in summer and autumn. Despite important CH4 oxidation rates, the estimated CH4 fluxes from the water surface to the atmosphere were high (mean of 732 mmol m- 2 d- 1 in spring, summer and autumn, and up to 12,482 mmol m- 2 d- 1 in winter).

Herbivore-infested plants often release a variety of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Here, we studied the effects of feeding Plutella xylostella (L.) (0, 3, 9, 20 pest larvae within 0-4 h and 4-8 h infestation, respectively) on the emission of sulfur-containing VOCs in Arabidopsis thaliana (L.) Heynh Col-0 (A.t. Col-0) by headspace solid-phase micro-extraction coupled to gas chromatography - mass spectrometry (HS-SPME-GC/MS). The analytical results showed that the relative emission of sulfur-containing metabolites increased significantly in Arabidopsis plants subjected to P. xylostella infestation according to the density and residence duration of pest larvae on shoot organs. The main compound from infested plants was dimethyl disulfide. We suggest that the correlations between the stress level (density and time infestation) and the sulfides observed in this study provide a means to understand the changes of VOCs profile of plant under chewer infestation.

The sesquiterpene (E)-beta-farnesene (E beta f) is the primary component of the alarm pheromone of most aphid species. It is released in response to physical stress including attack by natural enemies and causes aphids to cease feeding and disperse. E beta f also acts as a kairomonal cue for aphid natural enemies. In this study, we collected the headspace volatiles released by aphid colonies of different sizes. Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis demonstrated the presence of E beta f in the absence of predator attack. A quadratic relationship was found between the released (E)-beta-farnesene amounts and aphid colony size. Behavioural impact of aphid alarm pheromone towards Episyrphus balteatus female oviposition behaviour was also demonstrated in this work. These results highlight the primary role of the small but continuous release of aphid alarm pheromone in mechanisms of decision-making by aphid predators during their foraging and egg-laying behaviour.

In response to attack by natural enemies, most aphid species release an alarm pheromone that causes nearby conspecifics to cease feeding and disperse. The primary component of the alarm pheromone of most species studied is (E)-beta-farnesene. We recently demonstrated that the production and accumulation of (E)-beta-farnesene during development by juvenile aphids is stimulated by exposure to odor cues, most likely by (E)-beta-farnesene emitted by other colony members. Here, we tested whether the release of (E)-beta-farnesene can be triggered by exposure to the alarm pheromone of other individuals, thereby amplifying the signal. Such contagious emission might be adaptive under some conditions because the amount of (E)-beta-farnesene released by a single aphid may not be sufficient to alert an appropriate number of individuals of the colony to the presence of a potential threat. By using a push-pull headspace collection system, we quantified (E)-beta-farnesene released from Acyrthosiphon pisum aphids exposed to conspecific alarm signals. Typical avoidance behavior was observed following exposure to (E)-beta-farnesene (i.e., aphids ceased feeding and dropped from host-plant); however, no increase in alarm pheromone amount was detected, suggesting that contagious release of (E)-beta-farnesene does not occur.

Carbon gas balance was evaluated in an anthropogenically impacted (Mtoni) and a pristine (Ras Dege) mangrove forest in Tanzania. Exchange of carbon dioxide (CO2) was measured for inundated and air-exposed sediments during day and night using in situ and laboratory incubations. In situ methane (CH4) emissions were measured in the dark during air exposure only. Emission of CO2 and CH4 from open waters (e.g. creeks) was estimated from diurnal measurements of CO2, partial pressure (pCO2) and CH4 concentrations. CO2 emission from darkened sediments devoid of biogenic structures was comparable during inundation and air exposure (28 to 115 mmol m–2 d–1) with no differences between mangrove forests. Benthic primary production was low with only occasional net uptake of CO2 by the sediments. Emissions of CH4 from air-exposed sediment were generally 3 orders of magnitude lower than for CO2. Presence of pneumatophores and crab burrows increased low tide emissions several fold. Emissions from open waters were dependent on tidal level and wind speed. Lowest emission occurred during high tide (1 to 6 mmol CO2 m–2 d–1; 10 to 80 μmol CH4 m–2 d–1) and highest during low tide (30 to 80 mmol CO2 m–2 d–1; 100 to 350 μmol CH4 m–2 d–1) when supersaturated runoff from the forest floor and porewater seepage reached the creek water. Based on global average primary production and measured gas emissions, the carbon gas balance of the 2 mangrove forests was estimated. The densely vegetated Ras Dege forest appears to be an efficient sink of greenhouse carbon gases, while extensive clear-cutting at the Mtoni forest apparently has reduced its capacity to absorb CO2, although it is seemingly still a net sink for atmospheric CO2.
