• Alien plant invasions in European woodlands 

      Wagner, V.; Chytry, M.; Jimenez-Alfaro, B.; Pergl, J.; Hennekens, S; et al.; Pysek, P. (John Wiley & Sons Ltd., 2017)
      Aim: Woodlands make up a third of European territory and carry out important ecosystem functions, yet a comprehensive overview of their invasion by alien plants has never been undertaken across this continent. Location: ...
    • High genetic diversity declines towards the geographic range periphery of Adonis vernalis, a Eurasian dry grassland plant 

      Hirsch, H.; Wagner, V.; Danihelka, J.; Ruprecht, E.; Sánchez-Gómez, P.; Seifert, M.; Hensen, I. (German Botanical Society and The Royal Botanical Society of the Netherlands, 2015)
      Genetic diversity is important for species’ fitness and evolutionary processes but our knowledge on how it varies across a species’ distribution range is limited. The abundant centre hypothesis (ACH) predicts that ...
    • Sex ratio rather than population size affects genetic diversity in Antennaria dioica 

      Rosche, C.; Schrieber, K.; Lachmuth, S.; Durka, W.; Hirsch, H.; Wagner, V.; Schleuning, M.; Hensen, I. (German Society for Plant Sciences and The Royal Botanical Society of the Netherlands, 2018)
      • Habitat fragmentation and small population size can lead to genetic erosion in threatened plant populations. Classical theory implies that dioecy can counteract genetic erosion as it decreases the magnitude of inbreeding ...
