Homogenization of forest plant communities and weakening of species–environment relationships via agricultural land use
Summary 1 Disturbance may cause community composition across sites to become more or less homogenous, depending on the importance of different processes involved in community assembly. In… Expand
A hierarchical framework for integrating invasibility experiments incorporating different factors and spatial scales
Results from experiments studying different factors determining invasibility (e.g. land use, disturbance, biotic interactions) at different spatial scales are mainly used in isolation, probably… Expand
Effects of a warmer climate on seed germination in the subarctic.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS In a future warmer subarctic climate, the soil temperatures experienced by dispersed seeds are likely to increase during summer but may decrease during winter due to expected… Expand
On the use of weather data in ecological studies along altitudinal and latitudinal gradients
Global warming has created a need for studies along climatic gradients to assess the effects of temperature on ecological processes. Altitudinal and latitudinal gradients are often used as such,… Expand
The effect of landscape fragmentation and forest continuity on forest floor species in two regions of Denmark
- B. Graae
- 1 December 2000
. Forest species composition was recorded in 82 forests in the Himmerland and Hornsherred regions in Denmark and analysed with respect to isolation (distance to other forests and areas of forest),… Expand
Latitudinal gradients as natural laboratories to infer species' responses to temperature
Macroclimatic variation along latitudinal gradients provides an excellent natural laboratory to investigate the role of temperature and the potential impacts of climate warming on terrestrial… Expand

Significance Around the globe, climate warming is increasing the dominance of warm-adapted species—a process described as “thermophilization.” However, thermophilization often lags behind warming of… Expand
Putting plant resistance traits on the map: a test of the idea that plants are better defended at lower latitudes.

• It has long been believed that plant species from the tropics have higher levels of traits associated with resistance to herbivores than do species from higher latitudes. A meta-analysis recently… Expand
Correlations between physical and chemical defences in plants: tradeoffs, syndromes, or just many different ways to skin a herbivorous cat?
Most plant species have a range of traits that deter herbivores. However, understanding of how different defences are related to one another is surprisingly weak. Many authors argue that defence… Expand
Critical periods for impact of climate warming on early seedling establishment in subarctic tundra
Climate warming is expected to shift bioclimatic zones and plant species distribution. Yet, few studies have explored whether seedling establishment is a possible bottleneck for future migration and… Expand
