A new method to assess water trophy and organic pollution – the Macrophyte Biological Index for Rivers (IBMR): its application to different types of river and pollution
The paper presents a new index for assessing water trophy and organic pollution. It is based on only true aquatic macrophytes – being calculated on species score, coefficient of ecological amplitudeExpand

On the challenge of treating various types of variables: application for improving the measurement of functional diversity
Functional diversity is at the heart of current research in the field of conservation biology. Most of the indices that measure diversity depend on variables that have various statistical types (e.g.Expand

Using biological traits to assess how urbanization filters plant species of small woodlands
Question: Which biological traits (persistence, regeneration, dispersion traits and resource requirements) may explain the distribution of woodland flora along an urban–rural gradient? Location:Expand

The effects of urban or rural landscape context and distance from the edge on native woodland plant communities
The increasing rate of urban sprawl continues to fragment European landscapes threatening the persistence of native woodland plant communities. The dynamics of woodland edges depend on theExpand

Plant species response to urbanization: comparison of isolated woodland patches in two cities of North-Western France
The effect of urbanization on species distribution has been extensively documented, but a main challenge in urban ecology is to better understand the factors causing different distributions amongExpand

Combined effects of environmental factors and regulation on macrophyte vegetation along three rivers in western France
The longitudinal changes of richness and composition of aquatic plants have been studied from headwaters to the fifth stream order in three rivers in western Brittany (France), the Orne, Selune andExpand

Distribution of three indigenous fern species along a rural–urban gradient in the city of Angers, France
Abstract The preservation of wild plants and animals in urban environments can be a good means to meet the demand for natural areas for recreational purposes. However, the impacts of urbanisation onExpand

Relationships between macrophytic vegetation and physical features of river habitats: the need for a morphological approach
The aim of this paper is to study the relationships between the physical features of rivers and the distribution of macrophyte vegetation. Field work was undertaken at 207 stations along the ScorffExpand

Are vineyards important habitats for birds at local or landscape scales
In Europe, monitoring indicates that farmland bird populations are declining. Numerous studies at different spatial scales have considered bird ecology in farmland, but viticulture has receivedExpand
