A distance-based framework for measuring functional diversity from multiple traits.
A new framework for measuring functional diversity (FD) from multiple traits has recently been proposed. This framework was mostly limited to quantitative traits without missing values and toExpand

Conservation of species interaction networks
We summarise the attributes of web structure that are predicted to confer stability or increased function to a system and highlight those (such as nestedness and connectance) that could easily be incorporated into conservation monitoring. Expand

Land-use intensification reduces functional redundancy and response diversity in plant communities.
Ecosystem resilience depends on functional redundancy (the number of species contributing similarly to an ecosystem function) and response diversity (how functionally similar species respondExpand

Reinforcing loose foundation stones in trait-based plant ecology
The promise of “trait-based” plant ecology is one of generalized prediction across organizational and spatial scales, independent of taxonomy. This promise is a major reason for the increasedExpand

Foliar nutrient concentrations and resorption efficiency in plants of contrasting nutrient‐acquisition strategies along a 2‐million‐year dune chronosequence
Summary Long-term pedogenesis leads to important changes in the availability of soil nutrients, especially nitrogen (N) and phosphorus (P). Changes in the availability of micronutrients can alsoExpand

Package 'fd' Title Measuring Functional Diversity (fd) from Multiple Traits, and Other Tools for Functional Ecology
Description FD is a package to compute different multidimensional FD indices. It implements a distance-based framework to measure FD that allows any number and type of functional traits, and can alsoExpand

Diversity of plant nutrient-acquisition strategies increases during long-term ecosystem development
Plant species diversity increases as soil phosphorus availability declines during long-term ecosystem development1,2. The increase in plant species diversity is associated with a decline inExpand

Leaf manganese accumulation and phosphorus-acquisition efficiency.
Plants that deploy a phosphorus (P)-mobilising strategy based on the release of carboxylates tend to have high leaf manganese concentrations ([Mn]). This occurs because the carboxylates mobilise notExpand

Soil Development and Nutrient Availability Along a 2 Million-Year Coastal Dune Chronosequence Under Species-Rich Mediterranean Shrubland in Southwestern Australia
Soil chronosequences provide valuable model systems to investigate pedogenesis and associated effects of nutrient availability on biological communities. However, long-term chronosequences occurringExpand
