EARLY EMERGENCE ENHANCES PLANT FITNESS: A PHYLOGENETICALLY CONTROLLED META‐ANALYSIS
The results show that early emergence differentially affects components of plant fitness, with no effect on seedling survival but large benefits to seedling growth and fecundity.
A meta-analysis of the effect of gut treatment on seed germination.
In this review, Traveset analysed the results of studies on nearly 200 plant species in 68 families, using a slight variation of the ‘vote-counting’ method, which changes the capacity of germination and/or the speed at which seeds germinate.
The Jungle of Methods for Evaluating Phenotypic and Phylogenetic Structure of Communities
A unifying framework on methods for community structure based on the relationships between four key concepts: phylogeny, phenotype, environment, and co-occurrence is provided.

The results indicate a microbial community massively dominated by the high-light-adapted Prochlorococcus marinus subsp.

The plant-AMF interaction pattern is interpreted in the context of how plant- AMF associations can be underlying mechanisms shaping plant community assemblages, and both plants and AMF show a nested structure, although AMFs have lower nestedness than plants.

It is shown that male trees invest more resources to growth than female trees only after reaching sexual maturity, and they use these resources in a different temporal way.
Fire drives phylogenetic clustering in Mediterranean Basin woody plant communities
Fire is a strong driving force in assembling HiFi communities while other forces, such as competitive interactions, are the main assembly mechanisms in LowFi communities, which supports the role of recurrent disturbances as filters driving phylogenetic community structure.
The Nested Assembly of Plant Facilitation Networks Prevents Species Extinctions
It is shown that facilitation networks behave as mutualistic networks do, characterized by a nonrandom, nested structure of plant‐plant interactions in which a few generalist nurses facilitate a large number of species while the rest of the nurses facilitate only a subset of them.
Ecological and evolutionary differences between Mediterranean seeders and resprouters

Results show that seeders from the Mediterranean Basin grow significantly faster and allocate more biomass to leaf plus paracotyledons than resprouters.
