• Chemical variations in Quercus pollen as a tool for taxonomic identification: Implications for long-term ecological and biogeographical research 

      Muthreich, Florian; Zimmermann, Boris; Birks, Harry John Betteley; Vila-Vicosa, Carlos M; Seddon, Alistair (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Aim Fossil pollen is an important tool for understanding biogeographical patterns in the past, but the taxonomic resolution of the fossil‐pollen record may be limited to genus or even family level. Chemical analysis of ...
    • Dispersal syndromes are poorly associated with climatic niche differences in the Azorean seed plants 

      Leo, María; Steinbauer, Manuel; Borges, Paulo A.V.; de Azevedo, Eduardo B.; Gabriel, Rosalina; Schaefer, Hanno; Santos, Ana (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Aim Environmental niche tracking is linked to the species ability to disperse. While well investigated on large spatial scales, dispersal constraints also influence small-scale processes and may explain the difference ...
    • 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 ...
    • The flickering connectivity system of the north Andean páramos 

      Flantua, Suzette; O'Dea, Aaron; Onstein, Renske E; Giraldo, Catalina; Hooghiemstra, Henry (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-06-13)
      Aim: To quantify the effect of Pleistocene climate fluctuations on habitat connectivity across páramos in the Northern Andes. Location: Northern Andes. Methods: The unique páramos habitat underwent dynamic shifts in elevation ...
    • Species–area relationships in continuous vegetation: Evidence from Palaearctic grasslands 

      Dengler, Jürgen; Matthews, Thomas J.; Steinbauer, Manuel J.; Wolfrum, Sebastian; Boch, Steffen; Chiarucci, Alessandro; Conradi, Timo; Dembicz, Iwona; Marcenó, Corrado; García-Mijangos, Itziar; Nowak, Arkadiusz; Storch, David; Ulrich, Werner; Campos, Juan Antonio; Cancellieri, Laura; Carboni, Marta; Ciaschetti, Giampiero; De Frenne, Pieter; Doležal, Jiří; Dolnik, Christian; Essl, Franz; Fantinato, Edy; Filibeck, Goffredo; Grytnes, John-Arvid; Guarino, Riccardo; Güler, Behlül; Janišová, Monika; Klichowska, Ewelina; Kozub, Łukasz; Kuzemko, Anna; Manthey, Michael; Mimet, Anne; Naqinezhad, Alireza; Pedersen, Christian; Peet, Robert K.; Pellissier, Vincent; Pielech, Remigiusz; Potenza, Giovanna; Rosati, Leonardo; Terzi, Massimo; Valkó, Orsolya; Vynokurov, Denys; White, Hannah; Winkler, Manuela; Biurrun, Idoia (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-09-19)
      Aim: Species–area relationships (SARs) are fundamental scaling laws in ecology although their shape is still disputed. At larger areas, power laws best represent SARs. Yet, it remains unclear whether SARs follow other ...
    • Testing macroecological abundance patterns: The relationship between local abundance and range size, range position and climatic suitability among European vascular plants 

      Sporbert, Maria; Keil, Petr; Seidler, Gunnar; Bruelheide, Helge; Jandt, Ute; Aćić, Svetlana; Biurrun, Idoia; Campos, Juan Antonio; Čarni, Andraž; Chitrý, Milan; Ćušterevska, Renata; Dengler, Jürgen; Golub, Valentin; Jansen, Florian; Kuzemko, Anna; Lenoir, Jonathan; Marcenó, Corrado; Moeslund, Jesper Erenskjold; Pérez-Haase, Aaron; Rūsiņa, Solvita; Šilc, Urban; Tsiripidris, Ioannis; Vandvik, Vigdis; Vasilev, Kiril; Virtanen, Risto; Welk, Erik (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Aim A fundamental question in macroecology centres around understanding the relationship between species’ local abundance and their distribution in geographical and climatic space (i.e. the multi-dimensional climatic space ...
