Global pollinator declines: trends, impacts and drivers.
Pollinators are a key component of global biodiversity, providing vital ecosystem services to crops and wild plants. There is clear evidence of recent declines in both wild and domesticatedExpand

How landscape structure, land-use intensity and habitat diversity affect components of total arthropod diversity in agricultural landscapes
1. Agricultural intensification poses a serious threat to biodiversity as a consequence of increased land-use intensity, decreased landscape heterogeneity and reduced habitat diversity. AlthoughExpand

Differences in the climatic debts of birds and butterflies at a continental scale
Climate changes have profound effects on the distribution of numerous plant and animal species(1-3). However, whether and how different taxonomic groups are able to track climate changes at largeExpand

Life-history traits predict species responses to habitat area and isolation: a cross-continental synthesis.
There is a lack of quantitative syntheses of fragmentation effects across species and biogeographic regions, especially with respect to species life-history traits. We used data from 24 independentExpand

Climate change impacts on bumblebees converge across continents
Bucking the trend Responses to climate change have been observed across many species. There is a general trend for species to shift their ranges poleward or up in elevation. Not all species, however,Expand

Climate change can cause spatial mismatch of trophically interacting species.
Climate change is one of the most influential drivers of biodiversity. Species-specific differences in the reaction to climate change can become particularly important when interacting species areExpand

Phylogenetic diversity and nature conservation: where are we?
To date, there is little evidence that phylogenetic diversity has contributed to nature conservation. Here, we discuss the scientific justification of using phylogenetic diversity in conservation andExpand

Challenging urban species diversity: contrasting phylogenetic patterns across plant functional groups in Germany.
Cities are hotspots of plant species richness, harboring more species than their rural surroundings, at least over large enough scales. However, species richness does not necessarily cover allExpand

Quantifying the impact of environmental factors on arthropod communities in agricultural landscapes across organizational levels and spatial scales
1. In landscapes influenced by anthropogenic activities, such as intensive agriculture, knowledge of the relative importance and interaction of environmental factors on the composition and functionExpand
