Abstract
Citation patterns were examined for Worm et al. 2006 (Science 314∶787-790), a high-impact paper that focused on relationships between marine biodiversity and ecosystem services. This paper sparked much controversy through its projection, highlighted in the press release, that all marine fisheries would be collapsed by 2048.

The Soundscapes of Lakes across an Urbanization Gradient.

The Soundscapes of Lakes across an Urbanization Gradient.
PLoS One. 2013;8(2):e55661
Authors: Kuehne LM, Padgham BL, Olden JD
Abstract
BACKGROUND/METHODOLOGY: A significant implication of increasing urbanization is anthropogenic noise pollution. Although noise is strongly associated with disruption of animal communication systems and negative health effects for humans, the study of these consequences at ecologically relevant spatial and temporal scales (termed soundscape ecology) is in early stages of application.
