How well does presence‐only‐based species distribution modelling predict assemblage diversity? A case study of the Tenerife flora
High levels of compositional error are found in overlays of presence-only-based models for many individual species in representing patterns of assemblage diversity, limiting the usefulness of this methodology in conservation planning.
How do different dispersal modes shape the species–area relationship? Evidence for between‐group coherence in the Macaronesian flora
Differences in dispersal ability influence the compositional dissimilarity between these islands, but not the rate of species increase with area, which may be because ISAR slopes are mostly determined by within-island processes of species accumulation, while differences in disperseal generate different betweenisland patterns.
Geographical, Temporal and Environmental Determinants of Bryophyte Species Richness in the Macaronesian Islands
The results indicate that for highly vagile taxa on oceanic islands, the dispersal process may be less important for successful colonization than the availability of suitable ecological conditions during the establishment phase.
Habitat distribution models for intertidal seaweeds: responses to climatic and non‐climatic drivers
Aim Because intertidal organisms often live close to their physiological tolerance limits, they are potentially sensitive indicators of climate‐driven changes in the environment. The goals of this…

It is concluded that the analysis of extensive databases is a useful tool in revealing the recording and taxonomic gaps, further showing that bryophyte inventories could still be incomplete in Terceira Island.

A species-level phylogeny of Odontoschisma (Jungermanniidae: Cephaloziaceae) was produced to revisit the infrageneric classification and delimit the species within the genus, revealing that a third genus, Anomoclada, is nested within it.
