• Evolutionary winners are ecological losers among oceanic island plants 

      Fernández-Palacios, José María; Otto, Rüdiger; Borregaard, Michael K.; Kreft, Holger; Price, Jonathan; Steinbauer, Manuel; Weigelt, Patrick; Whittaker, Robert J. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Aim Adaptive radiation, in which successful lineages proliferate by exploiting untapped niche space, provides a popular but potentially misleading characterization of evolution on oceanic islands. Here we analyse the ...
    • Global endemics-area relationships of vascular plants 

      Hobohm, Carsten; Janišová, Monika; Steinbauer, Manuel; Landi, Sara; Field, Richard; Vanderplank, Sula; Beierkuhnlein, Carl; Grytnes, John-Arvid; Vetaas, Ole Reidar; Fidelis, Alessandra; de Nascimento, Lea; Clark, Vincent Ralph; Fernández-Palacios, José María; Franklin, Scott; Guarino, Riccardo; Huang, Jihong; Krestov, Pavel V.; Ma, Keping; Onipchenko, Vladimir G.; Palmer, Michael W.; Fragomeni Simon, Marcelo; Stolz, Christian; Chiarucci, Alessandro (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Endemics–Area Relationships (EARs) are fundamental in theoretical and applied biogeography for understanding distribution patterns and promoting biodiversity conservation. However, calculating EARs for vascular plant species ...
    • The human dimension of biodiversity changes on islands 

      Nogué, Sandra; Santos, Ana; Birks, Harry John Betteley; Björck, Svante; Castilla-Beltrán, Alvaro; Connor, Simon; de Boer, Erik J.; de Nascimento, Lea; Felde, Vivian Astrup; Fernández-Palacios, José María; Froyd, Cynthia; Haberle, Simon G.; Hooghiemstra, Henry; Ljung, Karl; Norder, Sietze J.; Peñuelas, Josep; Prebble, Matthew; Stevenson, Janelle; Whittaker, Robert J.; Willis, Kathy J.; Wilmshurst, Janet M.; Steinbauer, Manuel (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Islands are among the last regions on Earth settled and transformed by human activities, and they provide replicated model systems for analysis of how people affect ecological functions. By analyzing 27 representative ...
    • Impacts of forest fire on understory species diversity in canary pine ecosystems on the island of La Palma 

      Weiser, Frank; Sauer, Anna; Gettueva, Daria; Field, Richard; Irl, Severin D. H.; Vetaas, Ole Reidar; Chiarucci, Alessandro; Hoffmann, Samuel; Fernández-Palacios, José María; Otto, Rüdiger; Jentsch, Anke; Provenzale, Antonello; Beierkuhnlein, Carl (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021-11-25)
      Forest fires are drivers of spatial patterns and temporal dynamics of vegetation and biodiversity. On the Canary Islands, large areas of pine forest exist, dominated by the endemic Canary Island pine, Pinus canariensis C. ...
    • Scientific floras can be reliable sources for some trait data in a system with poor coverage in global trait databases 

      Cutts, Vanessa; Hanz, Dagmar M.; Barajas-Barbosa, Martha P.; Algar, Adam C.; Steinbauer, Manuel; Irl, Severin D.H.; Kreft, Holger; Weigelt, Patrick; Fernández-Palacios, José María; Field, Richard (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Aim Trait-based approaches are increasingly important in ecology and biogeography, but progress is often hampered by the availability of high-quality quantitative trait data collected in the field. Alternative sources of ...
