Beta diversity of plants, birds and butterflies is closely associated with climate and habitat structure
Aim The aim was to investigate the relationship between climate, topography and soil pH, as well as vegetation structure and the beta diversity of plants, butterflies and birds; and to investigateExpand

Global buffering of temperatures under forest canopies
Macroclimate warming is often assumed to occur within forests despite the potential for tree cover to modify microclimates. Here, using paired measurements, we compared the temperatures under theExpand

Remotely sensed forest structural complexity predicts multi species occurrence at the landscape scale
Along with plant species composition forest structural complexity is an important determinant of forest biodiversity, but difficult to predict in space from field data. We analyzed forest structuralExpand

Improved methods for measuring forest landscape structure: LiDAR complements field-based habitat assessment
Conservation and monitoring of forest biodiversity requires reliable information about forest structure and composition at multiple spatial scales. However, detailed data about forest habitatExpand

Predation risk shaped by habitat and landscape complexity in urban environments
1. Habitat loss and modification are hallmarks of anthropogenic ecosystems, but the consequences for ecosystem functioning and service provisioning often remain unclear. Understanding these links inExpand

Optimizing passive acoustic sampling of bats in forests
Passive acoustic methods are increasingly used in biodiversity research and monitoring programs because they are cost-effective and permit the collection of large datasets. However, the accuracy ofExpand

Advances in Monitoring and Modelling Climate at Ecologically Relevant Scales
Abstract Most ecological studies of the effects of climate on species are based on average conditions above ground level (measured by meteorological stations) averaged across 100 km 2 or largerExpand

Temperate Mountain Forest Biodiversity under Climate Change: Compensating Negative Effects by Increasing Structural Complexity
Species adapted to cold-climatic mountain environments are expected to face a high risk of range contractions, if not local extinctions under climate change. Yet, the populations of many endothermicExpand

From field surveys to LiDAR: Shining a light on how bats respond to forest structure
Abstract Detailed information about three-dimensional vegetation structure proves increasingly useful for studying species-habitat relationships in forest ecosystems. This particularly applies toExpand

Environmental predictors of species richness in forest landscapes: abiotic factors versus vegetation structure
Aim To investigate the performance and relative importance of abiotic and biotic predictors of species richness of three taxa in forest-dominated landscapes across an environmentally heterogeneousExpand
