• 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 ...
    • 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 ...
    • Snapshot isolation and isolation history challenge the analogy between mountains and islands used to understand endemism 

      Flantua, Suzette; Payne, Davnah; Borregaard, Michael Krabbe; Beierkuhnlein, Carl; Steinbauer, Manuel J.; Dullinger, Stefan; Essl, Franz; Irl, Severin D.H.; Kienle, David; Kreft, Holger; Lenzner, Bernd; Norder, Sietze J.; Rijsdijk, Kenneth F.; Rumpf, Sabine B.; Weigelt, Patrick; Field, Richard (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Aim Mountains and islands are both well known for their high endemism. To explain this similarity, parallels have been drawn between the insularity of “true islands” (land surrounded by water) and the isolation of habitats ...
