• Capturing the ‘droopy tail’ in the occupancy-abundance relationship 

      Hui, Cang; McGeoch, Melodie A. (2007)
      The intraspecific occupancy–abundance relationship is a widely used descriptor of species distributions, with potential value to conservation and pest management for predicting species abundance from occurrence data. Six ...
    • Ecogeographical rules: elements of a synthesis 

      Gaston, K.J.; Chown, S.L.; Evans, K.L. (Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
      The development of a more synthetic approach to understanding spatial patterns in biogeography, particularly of the way in which these patterns interact, constitutes a major challenge for the field. Here we propose some ...
    • Frontiers of Biogeography: taking its place as a journal of choice for the publication of high quality biogeographical research articles 

      Whittaker, R.J.; Horal, J.; Sax, D.F.; Currie, D.J.; Richardson, D.M.; Stigall, A.L.; Dawson, M.N. (CC-BY 4.0, 2018)
      Through this editorial we seek your support and engagement as authors, readers and reviewers as we take the next steps in developing Frontiers of Biogeography as a leading international journal of biogeography and related ...
    • Greater focus needed on alien plant impacts in protected areas. 

      Hulme, P.E.; Pysek, P.; Pergl, J.; Jarosik, V.; Schaffner, U.; Vila, M. (Wiley Periodicals, Inc, 2014)
      Alien plants pose significant threats to protected areas worldwide yet many studies only describe the degree to which these areas have become invaded. Research must move toward a better understanding of alien plant impacts ...
    • Macrophysiology for a changing world 

      Chown, S.L.; Gaston, K.J. (The Royal Society, 2008)
      The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment (MA) has identified climate change, habitat destruction, invasive species, overexploitation and pollution as the major drivers of biodiversity loss and sources of concern for human ...
    • Macrophysiology: A Conceptual Reunification 

      Gaston, K.J.; Chown, S.L.; Calosi, P.; Bernardo, J.; Bilton, D.T.; Clarke, A.; Clusella-Trullas, S.; Ghalambor, C.K.; Konarzewski, M.; Peck, L.S.; Porter, W.P.; Portner, H.O.; Rezende, E.L.; Schulte, P.M.; Spicer, J.I.; Stillman, J.H.; Terblanche, J.S.; van Kleunen, M. (2009-11)
      Widespread recognition of the importance of biological studies at large spatial and temporal scales, particularly in the face of many of the most pressing issues facing humanity, has fueled the argument that there is a ...
    • Phenology predicts the native and invasive range limits on common ragweed 

      Chapman, D.S.; Haynes, T.; Beal, S.; Essl, F.; Bullock, J.M. (John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2014-01)
      Accurate models for species’ distributions are needed to forecast the progress and impacts of alien invasive species and assess potential range-shifting driven by global change. Although this has traditionally been achieved ...
    • The relative importance of environment, human activity and space in explaining species richness of South African bird orders 

      Wilson, J.W.; van Rensburg, B.J.; Ferguson, J.W.H.; Keith, M. (Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2008)
      Aim To assess the relative importance of environmental (climate, habitat heterogeneity and topography), human (population density, economic prosperity and land transformation) and spatial (autocorrelation) influences, and ...
    • The world’s biogeographical regions: cluster analyses based on bat distributions 

      Proches, S. (Blackwell Publishing Ltd, 2005)
      Aim: Both floral kingdoms and faunal regions have so far been intuitively defined. This study was conducted to compare these with an analytical regionalization based on cluster analyses in a fairly homogeneous, globally ...
    • Zeta diversity as a concept and metric that unifies incidence-based biodiversity patterns 

      Hui, C.; McGeogh, M.A. (The American Society of Naturalists, 2014-11)
      Patterns in species incidence and compositional turnover are central to understanding what drives biodiversity. Here we propose zeta(ζ)diversity; the number of species shared by multiple assemblages, as a concept and metric ...
