      Aims Understanding fine-grain diversity patterns across large spatial extents is fundamental for macroecological research and biodiversity conservation. Using the GrassPlot database, we provide benchmarks of fine-grain ...
    • Climate-Driven Plant Response and Resilience on the Tibetan Plateau in Space and Time: A Review 

      Bhattarai, Prakash; Zheng, Zhoutao; Bhatta, Kuber Prasad; Adhikari, Yagya Prasad; Zhang, Yangjian (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Climate change variation on a small scale may alter the underlying processes determining a pattern operating at large scale and vice versa. Plant response to climate change on individual plant levels on a fine scale tends ...
    • Does tree canopy closure moderate the effect of climate warming on plant species composition of temperate Himalayan oak forest? 

      Bhatta, Kuber Prasad; Vetaas, Ole Reidar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016-09)
      Question: We ask if there are significant changes in plant species composition after 20 yr of documented temperature increase (~1 °C), and if the temporal changes are different in closed temperate oak forest compared to ...
    • Downhill shift of alpine plant assemblages under contemporary climate and land-use changes 

      Bhatta, Kuber Prasad; Grytnes, John-Arvid; Vetaas, Ole Reidar (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-01-10)
      Compositional changes in Himalayan vegetation in response to the major drivers of biodiver- sity loss, climate change and land-use change, are barely documented. We quantify temporal changes in the alpine vegetation of ...
    • Global acceleration in rates of vegetation change over the past 18,000 years 

      Mottl, Ondrej; Flantua, Suzette; Bhatta, Kuber Prasad; Felde, Vivian Astrup; Giesecke, Thomas; Goring, Simon; Grimm, Eric C.; Haberle, Simon G.; Hooghiemstra, Henry; Ivory, Sarah J; Kuneš, Petr; Wolters, Steffen; Seddon, Alistair William Robin; Williams, John W. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Global vegetation over the past 18,000 years has been transformed first by the climate changes that accompanied the last deglaciation and again by increasing human pressures; however, the magnitude and patterns of rates ...
    • A pan-Himalayan test of predictions on plant species richness based on primary production and water-energy dynamics 

      Bhatta, Kuber Prasad; Robson, Benjamin Aubrey; Suwal, Madan Krishna; Vetaas, Ole Reidar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Spatial variation in plant species diversity is well-documented but an overarching first-principles theory for diversity variation is lacking. Chemical energy expressed as Net Primary Production (NPP) is related to a ...
    • Rate-of-change analysis in palaeoecology revisited: a new approach 

      Mottl, Ondrej; Grytnes, John Arvid; Seddon, Alistair William Robin; Steinbauer, Manuel; Bhatta, Kuber Prasad; Felde, Vivian Astrup; Flantua, Suzette; Birks, Harry John Betteley (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Dynamics in the rate of compositional change (rate-of-change; RoC), preserved in paleoecological sequences, are thought to reflect changes due to exogenous (climate and human forcing) or endogenous (local dynamics and ...
    • Spatiotemporal dynamics of plant assemblages under changing climate and land-use regimes in central Nepal Himalaya 

      Bhatta, Kuber Prasad (Doctoral thesis, 2018-08-31)
      The trajectories of vegetation and landscape dynamics have been redirected globally by climate change and land-use change. The drivers and mechanisms of the spatiotemporal changes are likely scale dependent and are most ...
    • Weighted average regression and environmental calibration as a tool for quantifying climate-driven changes in vegetation 

      Bhatta, Kuber Prasad; Birks, Harry John Betteley; Grytnes, John-Arvid; Vetaas, Ole Reidar (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Aims: Studies of the climatic responses of plant assemblages via vegetation-based environmental reconstructions by weighted averaging (WA) regression and calibration are a recent development in modern vegetation ecology. ...
