• 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 ...
    • From a crisis to an opportunity: Eight insights for doing science in the COVID‐19 era and beyond 

      Chacón-Labella, Julia; Boakye, Mickey; Enquist, Brian J.; Farfan-Rios, William; Gya, Ragnhild; Halbritter Rechsteiner, Aud Helen; Middleton, Sara L.; von Oppen, Jonathan; Pastor-Ploskonka, Samuel; Strydom, Tanya; Vandvik, Vigdis; Geange, Sonya Rita (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      The COVID-19 crisis has forced researchers in Ecology to change the way we work almost overnight. Nonetheless, the pandemic has provided us with several novel components for a new way of conducting science. In this perspective ...
    • Globally important plant functional traits for coping with climate change 

      Kühn, Nicola; Tovar, Carolina; Carretero, Julia; Vandvik, Vigdis; Enquist, Brian J.; Willis, Katherine Jane (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      The last decade has seen a proliferation of studies that use plant functional traits to assess how plants respond to climate change. However, it remains unclear whether there is a global set of traits that can predict ...
    • Multiscale mapping of plant functional groups and plant traits in the High Arctic using field spectroscopy, UAV imagery and Sentinel-2A data 

      Thomson, Eleanor R.; Spiegel, Marcus P.; Althuizen, Inge; Bass, Polly; Chen, Shuli; Chmurzynski, Adam; Rechsteiner, Aud Helen Halbritter; Henn, Jonathan J.; Jónsdóttir, Ingibjörg S.; Klanderud, Kari; Li, Yaoqi; Maitner, Brian S.; Michaletz, Sean T.; Niittynen, Pekka; Roos, Ruben Erik; Telford, Richard James; Enquist, Brian J.; Vandvik, Vigdis; Macias-Fauria, Marc; Malhi, Yadvinder (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the planet, leading to rapid changes in species composition and plant functional trait variation. Landscape-level maps of vegetation composition and trait distributions ...
    • Next-generation field courses: Integrating Open Science and online learning 

      Geange, Sonya Rita; von Oppen, Jonathan; Strydom, Tanya; Boakye, Mickey; Gauthier, Tasha-Leigh J.; Gya, Ragnhild; Halbritter Rechsteiner, Aud Helen; Jessup, Laura H.; Middleton, Sara L.; Navarro, Jocelyn; Peirfederici, Maria Elisa; Chacón-Labella, Julia; Cotner, Sehoya Harris; Farfan-Rios, William; Maitner, Brian S.; Michaletz, Sean T.; Telford, Richard; Enquist, Brian J.; Vandvik, Vigdis (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      As Open Science practices become more commonplace, there is a need for the next generation of scientists to be well versed in these aspects of scientific research. Yet, many training opportunities for early career researchers ...
    • Plant traits and vegetation data from climate warming experiments along an 1100 m elevation gradient in Gongga Mountains, China

(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Functional trait data enhance climate change research by linking climate change, biodiversity response, and ecosystem functioning, and by enabling comparison between systems sharing few taxa. Across four sites along a ...
