Abstract

Climate change is now considered to be the greatest threat to biodiversity and ecological networks, but its impacts on the bacterial communities associated with plants and animals remain largely unknown. Here, we studied the consequences of climate warming on the gut bacterial communities of an ectotherm, the common lizard (Zootoca vivipara), using a semi-natural experimental approach. We found that 2-3 °C warmer climates cause a 34% loss of populations' microbiota diversity, with possible negative consequences for host survival.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 216. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 04 December 2019.
All research outputs
#83,264
of 15,909,307 outputs
Outputs from Nature Ecology & Evolution
#214
of 1,219 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#2,983
of 268,501 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Nature Ecology & Evolution
#11
of 95 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 15,909,307 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done particularly well and is in the 99th percentile: it's in the top 5% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 1,219 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a lot more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 149.7. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 268,501 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done particularly well, scoring higher than 98% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 95 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 88% of its contemporaries.
