How successful are plant species reintroductions
Abstract Reintroduction of native species has become increasingly important in conservation worldwide for recovery of rare species and restoration purposes. However, few studies have reported theExpand
Extreme climatic events and vegetation: the role of stabilizing processes
Current climatic trends involve both increasing temperatures and climatic variability, with extreme events becoming more frequent. Increasing concern on extreme climatic events has triggered researchExpand
Structural equation modelling: an alternative for assessing causal relationships in threatened plant populations
Structural equation modelling (SEM) is a powerful tool to explore and contrast hypotheses on causal relationships among variables using observational data. It constitutes an alternative toExpand
Plant conservation: old problems, new perspectives
A review is given of the major conceptual changes that have taken place during the last 50 years in our understanding of the nature of plant conservation and of the principal methodological advancesExpand
Spatial analysis of genetic diversity as a tool for plant conservation
Development of suitable approaches to the analysis of genetic diversity in a spatial context, where factors such as pollination, seed dispersal, breeding system, habitat heterogeneity and humanExpand
Weighted-Interaction Nestedness Estimator (WINE): A new estimator to calculate over frequency matrices
We propose a new nestedness estimator that takes into account the weight of the interactions, that is, it runs over frequency matrices. Expand
Genetic structure of an endangered plant, Antirrhinum microphyllum (Scrophulariaceae): allozyme and RAPD analysis.
Thirteen allozyme loci and 68 random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers were analyzed to assess the genetic diversity and population structure of threatened Antirrhinum microphyllumExpand
Reproductive limits of a late-flowering high-mountain Mediterranean plant along an elevational climate gradient.
Mountain plants are particularly sensitive to climate warming because snowmelt timing exerts a direct control on their reproduction. Current warming is leading to earlier snowmelt dates and longerExpand
Pollination patterns limit hybridization between two sympatric species of Narcissus (Amaryllidaceae).
Natural hybrids between rare and common sympatric species are commonly eradicated to avoid the potential extinction of the rare species, although there is currently no clear predictive framework toExpand
