      The causes and consequences of genome reduction in animals are unclear because our understanding of this process mostly relies on lineages with often exceptionally high rates of evolution. Here, we decode the compact ...
    • Consistent trait-environment relationships within and across tundra plant communities 

      Kemppinen, Julia; Niittynen, Pekka; le Roux, Peter C.; Momberg, Mia; Happonen, Konsta; Aalto, Juha; Rautakoski, Helena; Enquist, Brian J.; Vandvik, Vigdis; Rechsteiner, Aud Helen Halbritter; Maitner, Brian S.; Luoto, Miska (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      A fundamental assumption in trait-based ecology is that relationships between traits and environmental conditions are globally consistent. We use field-quantified microclimate and soil data to explore if trait–environment ...
    • Strengthening the evidence base for temperature-mediated phenological asynchrony and its impacts 

      Samplonius, Jelmer; Atkinson, Angus; Hassall, Christopher; Keogan, Katherine; Thackeray, Stephen J.; Assmann, Jakob J.; Burgess, Malcolm D.; Macphie, Kirsty H; Pearce-Higgins, James W.; Simmonds, Emily Grace; Johansson, Jacob; Varpe, Øystein; Weir, James C; Childs, Dylan Z.; Cole, Ella F.; Daunt, Francis; Hart, Tom; Lewis, Owen T.; Pettorelli, Nathalie; Sheldon, Ben C.; Phillimore, Albert B. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Climate warming has caused the seasonal timing of many components of ecological food chains to advance. In the context of trophic interactions, the match–mismatch hypothesis postulates that differential shifts can lead to ...
