Spatial variability of phyllosphere fungal assemblages: genetic distance predominates over geographic distance in a European beech stand (Fagus sylvatica)
Abstract Despite being major drivers of the dynamics and diversity of plant populations and communities, the spatial variability of phyllosphere fungal assemblages has been seldom explored. We usedExpand

The composition of phyllosphere fungal assemblages of European beech (Fagus sylvatica) varies significantly along an elevation gradient.
Little is known about the potential effect of climate warming on phyllosphere fungi, despite their important impact on the dynamics and diversity of plant communities. The structure of phyllosphereExpand

Effects of plant phylogenetic diversity on herbivory depend on herbivore specialization
Summary 1. Pest regulation is an important ecosystem service provided by biodiversity, as plants growing in species-rich communities often experience associational resistance to herbivores. However,Expand

Impact of ecological factors on the initial invasion of Bt transgenes into wild populations of birdseed rape (Brassica rapa)
The inevitable escape of transgenic pollen from cultivated fields will lead to the emergence of transgenic crop-wild plant hybrids in natural patches of wild plants. The fate of these hybrids andExpand

Deciphering the Pathobiome: Intra- and Interkingdom Interactions Involving the Pathogen Erysiphe alphitoides
Plant-inhabiting microorganisms interact directly with each other, forming complex microbial interaction networks. These interactions can either prevent or facilitate the establishment of newExpand

Leaf and Root-Associated Fungal Assemblages Do Not Follow Similar Elevational Diversity Patterns
The diversity of fungi along environmental gradients has been little explored in contrast to plants and animals. Consequently, environmental factors influencing the composition of fungal assemblagesExpand

Modelling the spatial configuration of refuges for a sustainable control of pests: a case study of Bt cotton
Abstract The ‘high‐dose‐refuge’ (HDR) strategy is widely recommended by the biotechnology industry and regulatory authorities to delay pest adaptation to transgenic crops that produce BacillusExpand

Architecture of an Antagonistic Tree/Fungus Network: The Asymmetric Influence of Past Evolutionary History
Background Compartmentalization and nestedness are common patterns in ecological networks. The aim of this study was to elucidate some of the processes shaping these patterns in a well resolvedExpand

Foliar fungal communities strongly differ between habitat patches in a landscape mosaic
Background Dispersal events between habitat patches in a landscape mosaic can structure ecological communities and influence the functioning of agrosystems. Here we investigated whetherExpand
