A conceptual framework for testing theories for the latitudinal gradient of species richness in terms of variation in functional diversity at the alpha, beta, and gamma scales is presented and suggests that multiple processes have shaped trait diversity in trees, reflecting no consistent support for any one theory.
World checklist of hornworts and liverworts
The first-ever worldwide checklist for liverworts and hornworts is presented that includes 7486 species in 398 genera representing 92 families from the two phyla, providing a valuable tool for taxonomists and systematists, analyzing phytogeographic and diversity patterns, aiding in the assessment of floristic and taxonomic knowledge, and identifying geographical gaps.
The bien r package: A tool to access the Botanical Information and Ecology Network (BIEN) database
An r package that provides easy access to large-scale botanical data in the BIEN database by turning user inputs into optimised PostgreSQL functions and developing a protocol for providing customised citations and herbarium acknowledgements for data downloaded through the bien r package.
Cyberinfrastructure for an integrated botanical information network to investigate the ecological impacts of global climate change on plant biodiversity
The grand challenge is to assemble and share the world’s rapidly accumulating botanical information from plots and collections to create a distributed, web-accessible, readily analyzable data resource that will answer major questions of direct relevance to plant ecology, plant evolution, plant geography, conservation, global change biology, and protection of biodiversity and ecosystem services.

A new sectional classification of subgenus Xenolejeunea is proposed (sections Gigantae, Meyenianae, and Xenolejunea), which is known from Australasia, Oceania and tropical Asia, and a nomenclator and discussion is provided for each species.
