atetra, a new software program to analyse tetraploid microsatellite data: comparison with tetra and tetrasat
Despite the importance of tetraploid species, most population genetic studies deal with diploid ones because of difficulties in analysing codominant microsatellite data in tetraploid species. WeExpand

Global Pseudomonas aeruginosa biodiversity as reflected in a Belgian river.
The biodiversity of the bacterium Pseudomonas aeruginosa in an aquatic environment (the Woluwe River, Brussels, Belgium) was analysed. Surface water was sampled bimonthly over a 1-year periodExpand

Impact of three aquatic invasive species on native plants and macroinvertebrates in temperate ponds
Biological plant invasions pose a serious threat to native biodiversity and have received much attention, especially in terrestrial habitats. In freshwater ecosystems impacts of invasive plantExpand

Genetic diversity in adult and seedling populations of Primula vulgaris in a fragmented agricultural landscape
Habitat fragmentation is known to generally reduce the size of plant populations and increase their isolation, leading to genetic erosion and increased between-population genetic differentiation. InExpand

Do linear landscape elements in farmland act as biological corridors for pollen dispersal
Summary 1. Habitat fragmentation in agricultural landscapes has reduced the population sizes of many plant species while increasing their spatial isolation. Restoration or maintenance of theExpand

Reduced reproductive success in small populations of the self‐incompatible Primula vulgaris
Summary 1 Habitat fragmentation and the resulting decline in population size can affect biotic interactions and reproductive success of plant species. We investigated the impact of habitat type,Expand

Fine-scale genetic structure of the common Primula elatior (Primulaceae) at an early stage of population fragmentation.
Many rare species are threatened by habitat fragmentation; however, less is known about effects of fragmentation on common species, despite their potential role in ecosystem productivity andExpand

Genetic consequences of habitat fragmentation in an agricultural landscape on the common Primula veris, and comparison with its rare congener, P. vulgaris
In Flanders (northern Belgium), the common (butlocally rare) P. veris and its rarerelative Primula vulgaris, twoself-incompatible perennials, mainly occur infragmented habitats of the intensivelyExpand

Regional groundwater discharge: phreatophyte mapping, groundwater modelling and impact analysis of land-use change
The relationship between groundwater recharge and discharge is one of the most important aspects in the protection of ecologically valuable areas. Knowledge of groundwater systems is therefore aExpand
