Gene Flow and Introgression from Domesticated Plants into Their Wild Relatives
A literature review of the world's most important food crops shows that 12 of these crops hybridize with wild relatives in some part of their agricultural distribution, and suggests ways of assessing the likelihood of hybridization, introgression, and the potential for undesirable gene flow from crops into weeds or rare species.
A global meta-analysis of the relative extent of intraspecific trait variation in plant communities.
A meta-analysis of the relative extent of ITV within and among plant communities worldwide, using a data set encompassing 629 communities (plots) and 36 functional traits highlights global patterns in the relative importance of ITV.
Contrasting changes in taxonomic, phylogenetic and functional diversity during a long‐term succession: insights into assembly processes
Functionally deterministic assembly suggests that it may be possible to predict future post-disturbance changes in biodiversity, and associated ecosystem attributes, on the basis of species’ functional traits but not phylogeny.
Sparing Land for Biodiversity at Multiple Spatial Scales
A common approach to the conservation of farmland biodiversity and the promotion of multifunctional landscapes, particularly in landscapes containing only small remnants of non-crop habitats, has…
Structure of allozyme variation in Nordic Silene nutans (Caryophyllaceae): population size, geographical position and immigration history
Investigation of allozyme variation in 34 populations of the perennial herb Silene nutans from Sweden and northern Finland, areas that were ice-covered during the last (Weichselian) glaciation, suggests two major postglacial immigration routes into Sweden.
Gene diversity and demographic turnover in central and peripheral populations of the perennial herb Gypsophila fastigiata
Within-population gene diversity (HS) was estimated (using allozyme markers) for 16 populations of the perennial, outcrossing plant, Gypsophila fastigiata, on the Baltic island of Oland. The popula…
History matters: village distances, grazing and grassland species diversity
1. Temperate semi-natural grasslands are characterized by high levels of species diversity and have a high conservation value. Plant species diversity in grazed semi-natural grasslands is known to be…
Semi-natural grassland continuity, long-term land-use change and plant species richness in an agricultural landscape on Öland, Sweden
Small-scale plant species richness and evenness in semi-natural grasslands respond differently to habitat fragmentation.
