Essentials of Conservation Biology
TLDR
This book discusses conservation at the population level, the value of biodiversity, and the challenges of sustainable development at local and national levels.
Longevity of individual flowers
Etude de la longevite des fleurs selon les familles, l'habitat, la phenologie, le type de pollinisation
Leaf-out phenology of temperate woody plants: from trees to ecosystems.
TLDR
For most species, onset of leaf-out will continue to advance, although advancement may be slowed for some species because of unmet chilling requirements, and more information is needed to reduce the uncertainty in predicting the timing of future spring onset.
Herbarium specimens demonstrate earlier flowering times in response to warming in Boston.
TLDR
Flowering times became progressively earlier; plants flowered 8 d earlier from 1980 to 2002 than they did from 1900 to 1920; most of this shift toward earlier flowering times is explained by the influence of temperature.
Global warming and flowering times in Thoreau's Concord: a community perspective.
TLDR
To determine how North American species' flowering times respond to climate, a series of previously unstudied records of the dates of first flowering for over 500 plant taxa in Concord, Massachusetts, USA are analyzed.
Phylogenetic patterns of species loss in Thoreau's woods are driven by climate change
TLDR
Climate change has affected and will likely continue to shape the phylogenetically biased pattern of species loss in Thoreau's woods, and flowering-time response traits are shared among closely related species.
RELATIONSHIPS AMONG FLOWERS, FRUITS, AND SEEDS
TLDR
Systematists, ecologists, and evolutionary biologists have traditionally treated reproduction in flowering plants as constituted by three distinct phases, each associated with a large literature, but field researchers in reproductive ecology are beginning to extend the scope of their studies into a broader context, blurring the edges of the three phases.
Restoration Biology: A Population Biology Perspective
TLDR
Five research areas of particular importance to restoration biology that offer potentially unique opportunities to couple basic research with the practical needs of restorationists are discussed.
COMMUNITY STUDIES IN POLLINATION ECOLOGY IN THE HIGH TEMPERATE ANDES OF CENTRAL CHILE. I. POLLINATION MECHANISMS AND ALTITUDINAL VARIATION
TLDR
Low-altitude populations of melittophilous species with broad altitudinal ranges are invariably serviced by fewer bee species as compared with lower populations, and the rich bee fauna at the lower end of the Andean zone in central Chile appears to have resulted from upward colonization from that of the subtending lowland Mediterranean sclerophyllous woodland vegetation.
