Greetings OpenChannels Community Members,

Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences has published a new Open Access paper, Marine regime shifts: drivers and impacts on ecosystems services. The authors reviewed "13 types of marine regime shifts and used networks to conduct an analysis of co-occurrence of drivers and ecosystem service impacts." You may download the full-text using the link above.

As always, if we've missed anything, please feel free to let me know. You may simply reply to this message, or you may email me directly at nwehner [at] openchannels.org.

Happy reading,
-Nick Wehner, OpenChannels Project Manager
