Key species groups that affect major ecological processes are vital components of community diversity. Many such key groups are found in the soil, including the mycorrhizal fungi that may connect… Expand
Rapid Changes in Flowering Time in British Plants
The average first flowering date of 385 British plant species has advanced by 4.5 days during the past decade compared with the previous four decades: 16% of species flowered significantly earlier in… Expand

Biodiversity and ecosystem services: a multilayered relationship.
The relationship between biodiversity and the rapidly expanding research and policy field of ecosystem services is confused and is damaging efforts to create coherent policy. Using the widely… Expand
An arbuscular mycorrhizal fungus accelerates decomposition and acquires nitrogen directly from organic material
Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (order Glomales), which form mycorrhizal symbioses with two out of three of all plant species, are believed to be obligate biotrophs that are wholly dependent on the… Expand
Phosphate availability regulates root system architecture in Arabidopsis.
Plant root systems are highly plastic in their development and can adapt their architecture in response to the prevailing environmental conditions. One important parameter is the availability of… Expand

Plant root systems can respond to nutrient availability and distribution by changing the three-dimensional deployment of their roots: their root system architecture (RSA). We have compared RSA in… Expand
Environmental physiology of plants
This is the third edition of an established and successful university textbook. The original structure and philosophy of the book continue in this new edition, providing a genuine synthesis of modern… Expand
The characters of successful invaders
The character&tics of invading species were explored using the Ecological Flora Database, and by using comparisons available in other studies. Invasion success has been related to both abundance and… Expand
Are microorganisms more effective than plants at competing for nitrogen?
Plant scientists have long debated whether plants or microorganisms are the superior competitor for nitrogen in terrestrial ecosystems. Microorganisms have traditionally been viewed as the victors… Expand
