Lemoine, N. P. (2021). Phenology dictates the impact of climate change on geographic distributions of six co‐occurring North American grasshoppers. Ecology and Evolution, 11(24), 18575–18590. doi:10.1002/ece3.8463 https://doi.org/10.1002/ece3.8463

Throughout the last century, climate change has altered the geographic distributions of many species. Insects, in particular, vary in their ability to track changing climates, and it is likely that phenology is an important determinant of how well insects can either expand or shift their geographic …

Ortego, J., & Knowles, L. L. (2021). Geographic isolation versus dispersal: Relictual alpine grasshoppers support a model of interglacial diversification with limited hybridization. Molecular Ecology. doi:10.1111/mec.16225 https://doi.org/10.1111/mec.16225

Alpine biotas are paradigmatic of the countervailing roles of geographic isolation and dispersal during diversification. In temperate regions, repeated distributional shifts driven by Pleistocene climatic oscillations produced both recurrent pulses of population fragmentation and opportunities for g…

Ortego, J., Noguerales, V., Tonzo, V., González-Serna, M. J., & Cordero, P. J. (2021). Broadly Distributed but Genetically Fragmented: Demographic Consequences of Pleistocene Climatic Oscillations in a Common Iberian Grasshopper. Insect Systematics and Diversity, 5(5). doi:10.1093/isd/ixab009 https://doi.org/10.1093/isd/ixab009

Although the genetic consequences of contemporary landscape composition and range shifts driven Pleistocene climatic oscillations have been studied fairly well in alpine organisms, we know much less about how these factors have shaped the demography of taxa with broader climatic niches and distribut…

Hochmair, H. H., Scheffrahn, R. H., Basille, M., & Boone, M. (2020). Evaluating the data quality of iNaturalist termite records. PLOS ONE, 15(5), e0226534. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0226534 https://doi.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0226534

Citizen science (CS) contributes to the knowledge about species distributions, which is a critical foundation in the studies of invasive species, biological conservation, and response to climatic change. In this study, we assessed the value of CS for termites worldwide. First, we compared the abunda…

Uludag, A., Aksoy, N., Yazlık, A., Arslan, Z. F., Yazmış, E., Uremis, I., … Brundu, G. (2017). Alien flora of Turkey: checklist, taxonomic composition and ecological attributes. NeoBiota, 35, 61–85. doi:10.3897/neobiota.35.12460 https://doi.org/10.3897/neobiota.35.12460

The paper provides an updated checklist of the alien flora of Turkey with information on its structure. The alien flora of Turkey comprises 340 taxa, among which there are 321 angiosperms, 17 gymnosperms and two ferns. Of the total number of taxa, 228 (68%) are naturalized and 112 (32%) are casual. …
