Spatial pattern analysis in ecology based on Ripley's K-function: Introduction and methods of edge correction
Spatial pattern analysis based on Ripley's K-func- tion is a second-order analysis of point patterns in a two- dimensional space. The method is increasingly used in studies of spatial distributionExpand

Facilitation and succession under the canopy of a leguminous shrub, Retama sphaerocarpa, in a semi-arid environment in south-east Spain
frequently with a growth of herbs in its understorey which contrasts with the surrounding areas by its higher biomass and diversity. We examined the relationships between the shrub and the herbsExpand

Slow, but steady: dispersal of freshwater molluscs
Molluscs are the proverbial examples of slow movement. In this review, dispersal distances and speed were assessed from literature data. Active upstream movement can occur both individually and inExpand

Phylogeography of the montane caddisfly Drusus discolor: evidence for multiple refugia and periglacial survival
We studied the genetic population structure and phylogeography of the montane caddisfly Drusus discolor across its entire range in central and southern Europe. The species is restricted to mountainExpand

Facilitation between Higher Plant Species in a Semiarid Environment
A major role of facilitation between higher plant species, particularly in stressful environments, has recently been reported in several papers that suggest that ben- eficial interactions could beExpand

Spatial patterns in a two‐tiered semi‐arid shrubland in southeastern Spain
Single species and bivariate distribution patterns in a semi-arid shrubland in southeastern Spain, dominated by the tall leguminous shrub Retama sphaerocarpa, were investi- gated by second-orderExpand

Cryptic biodiversity loss linked to global climate change
Climate impacts on biodiversity are usually assessed at the morphospecies level. An analysis of the distribution and mitochondrial DNA variability of nine montane aquatic insect species in EuropeExpand

Modelling distribution in European stream macroinvertebrates under future climates.
Climate change is predicted to have profound effects on freshwater organisms due to rising temperatures and altered precipitation regimes. Using an ensemble of bioclimatic envelope models (BEMs), weExpand

Effect of the canopy of Retama sphaerocarpa on its understorey in a semiarid environment
Summary 1. A dense understorey of annual and perennial herbs grow under the canopy of Retama sphaerocarpashrubs in semiarid environments of south-east Spain, influencing plant productivity andExpand

Climate‐change winners and losers: stream macroinvertebrates of a submontane region in Central Europe
Summary 1. Freshwater ecosystems will be profoundly affected by global climate change, especially those in mountainous areas, which are known to be particularly vulnerable to warming temperatures.Expand
