Ecological plant epigenetics: Evidence from model and non-model species, and the way forward.
Growing evidence shows that epigenetic mechanisms contribute to complex traits, with implications across many fields of biology. In plant ecology, recent studies have attempted to merge ecologicalExpand

Effects of Land Use on Bat Diversity in a Complex Plantation—Forest Landscape in Northeastern Brazil
In fragmented areas, the persistence of different species depends on their ability to use the surrounding matrix either as a corridor or as a foraging habitat. We assessed how species richness andExpand

Altitudinal gradients, biogeographic history and microhabitat adaptation affect fine-scale spatial genetic structure in African and Neotropical populations of an ancient tropical tree species
The analysis of fine-scale spatial genetic structure (FSGS) within populations can provide insights into eco-evolutionary processes. Restricted dispersal and locally occurring genetic drift are theExpand

Effects of zoochory on the spatial genetic structure of plant populations
Spatial genetic structure (SGS) of plants results from the nonrandom distribution of related individuals. SGS provides information on gene flow and spatial patterns of genetic diversity withinExpand

Anonymous and EST-based microsatellite DNA markers that transfer broadly across the fig tree genus (Ficus, Moraceae).
PREMISE OF THE STUDY We developed a set of microsatellite markers for broad utility across the species-rich pantropical tree genus Ficus (fig trees). The markers were developed to study populationExpand

Key ecological research questions for Central European forests
Abstract Forests are under pressure from accelerating global change. To cope with the multiple challenges related to global change but also to further improve forest management we need a betterExpand

Ecological plant epigenetics: Evidence from model and non-model species, and the way forward
Growing evidence makes a strong case that epigenetic mechanisms contribute to complex traits, with implications across many fields of biology from dissecting developmental processes to understandingExpand

A Reference Genome Sequence for the European Silver Fir (Abies alba Mill.): A Community-Generated Genomic Resource
Silver fir (Abies alba Mill.) is a keystone conifer of European montane forest ecosystems that has experienced large fluctuations in population size during during the Quaternary and, more recently,Expand

Linking dendroecology and association genetics in natural populations: Stress responses archived in tree rings associate with SNP genotypes in silver fir (Abies alba Mill.)
Genetic association studies in forest trees would greatly benefit from information on the response of trees to environmental stressors over time, which can be provided by dendroecological analysis.Expand

Detection of SNPs based on transcriptome sequencing in Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst)
A novel set of SNPs was derived from transcriptome data of ten Norway spruce (Picea abies) trees from the Bavarian Forest National Park in Germany (BaFoNP). SNPs were identified by mapping against aExpand
