Mienna, I. M., Speed, J. D. M., Bendiksby, M., Thornhill, A. H., Mishler, B. D., & Martin, M. D. (2019). Differential patterns of floristic phylogenetic diversity across a post‐glacial landscape. Journal of Biogeography. doi:10.1111/jbi.13789 https://doi.org/10.1111/jbi.13789

Aim: In this study, we explored spatial patterns of phylogenetic diversity (PD) and endemism in the flora of Norway and tested hypothesized post‐glacial environmental drivers of PD, including temperature, precipitation, edaphic factors and time since glacial retreat. Location: Norway. Taxon: Vascula…

Exposito-Alonso, M., Burbano, H. A., Bossdorf, O., Nielsen, R., & Weigel, D. (2019). Natural selection on the Arabidopsis thaliana genome in present and future climates. Nature, 573(7772), 126–129. doi:10.1038/s41586-019-1520-9 https://doi.org/10.1038/s41586-019-1520-9

Through the lens of evolution, climate change is an agent of natural selection that forces populations to change and adapt, or face extinction. However, current assessments of the risk of biodiversity associated with climate change1 do not typically take into account how natural selection influences…

Rotllan-Puig, X., & Traveset, A. (2019). Determining the Minimal Background Area for Species Distribution Models: MinBAR Package. doi:10.1101/571182 https://doi.org/10.1101/571182

One of the crucial choices when modelling species distributions using pseudo-absences approaches is the delineation of the background area to fit the model. We hypothesise that there is a minimum background area around the centre of the species distribution that characterizes well enough the range o…

Sheppard, C. S., & Schurr, F. M. (2018). Biotic resistance or introduction bias? Immigrant plant performance decreases with residence times over millennia. Global Ecology and Biogeography. doi:10.1111/geb.12844 https://doi.org/10.1111/geb.12844

Aim: Invasions are dynamic processes. Invasive spread causes the geographical range size of alien species to increase with residence time. However, with time native competitors and antagonists can adapt to invaders. This build‐up of biotic resistance may eventually limit the invader’s performance an…

Joffard, N., Massol, F., Grenié, M., Montgelard, C., & Schatz, B. (2018). Effect of pollination strategy, phylogeny and distribution on pollination niches of Euro‐Mediterranean orchids. Journal of Ecology, 107(1), 478–490. doi:10.1111/1365-2745.13013 https://doi.org/10.1111/1365-2745.13013

1.Pollination niches are important components of ecological niches and have played a major role in the diversification of Angiosperms. In this study, we focused on Euro‐Mediterranean orchids, which use diverse pollination strategies and interact with various functional groups of insects. In these or…
