Species–area relationship: separating the effects of species abundance and spatial distribution
Summary 1. The species‐area relationship (SAR) has long been used to describe biological diversity across spatial scales. Theoretically, we can describe SARs exhaustively from patterns of speciesExpand

ESTIMAP: A GIS-BASED MODEL TO MAP ECOSYSTEM SERVICES IN THE EUROPEAN UNION
Policies of the European Union which affect the use or protection of natural resources increasingly need spatial data on the supply, the flow and the demand of ecosystem services. The model ESTIMAPExpand

Spatial alternatives for Green Infrastructure planning across the EU: An ecosystem service perspective
Abstract Target 2 of the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020 aims at the deployment of Green Infrastructure (GI) and the restoration of at least 15% of degraded ecosystems. We assess differentExpand

Climate-driven spatial mismatches between British orchards and their pollinators: increased risks of pollination deficits
Understanding how climate change can affect crop-pollinator systems helps predict potential geographical mismatches between a crop and its pollinators, and therefore identify areas vulnerable to lossExpand
