      Plue, Jan; Van Calster, Hans; Auestad, Inger; Basto, Sofia; Bekker, Renee M.; Bruun, Hans Henrik; Chevalier, Richard; Decocq, Guillaume; Grandin, Ulf; Hermy, Martin; Jacquemyn, Hans; Jakobsson, Anna; Jankowska‐Błaszczuk, Małgorzata; Kalamees, Rein; Koch, Marcus A.; Marrs, Rob H.; Marteinsdóttir, Bryndís; Milberg, Per; Måren, Inger Elisabeth; Pakeman, Robin J.; Phoenix, Gareth K.; Thompson, Ken; Vandvik, Vigdis; Wagner, Markus; Auffret, Alistair G. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Aim: Climate and land use are key determinants of biodiversity, with past and ongoing changes posing serious threats to global ecosystems. Unlike most other organism groups, plant species can possess dormant life‐history ...
    • 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 ...
    • Trait-based responses to land use and canopy dynamics modify long-term diversity changes in forest understories 

      Happonen, Konsta; Muurinen, Lauralotta; Virtanen, Risto; Kaakinen, Eero; Grytnes, John Arvid; Kaarlejärvi, Elina; Parisot, Philippe; Wolff, Matias; Maliniemi, Tuija (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Aim: Land use is the foremost cause of global biodiversity decline, but species do not respond equally to land-use practices. Instead, it is suggested that responses vary with species traits, but long-term data on the ...
