• Do long-distance migratory birds track their niche through seasons? 

      Zurell, D.; Gallien, L.; Graham, C.H.; Zimmermann, N.E. (John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2018)
      Aim: Seasonal migration by animals is an extensively studied, global phenomenon.Yet, we still lack a general understanding whether migrants track their niche between summer and winter ranges (following fixed environmental ...
    • Frequency and intensity of facilitation reveal opposing patterns along a stress gradient 

      Gallien, L.; Zurell, D.; Zimmermann, N.E. (John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2018)
      Disentangling the different processes structuring ecological communities is a long-standing challenge. In species-rich ecosystems, most emphasis has so far been given to environmental filtering and competition processes, ...
    • Invasive plants threaten the least mobile butterflies in Switzerland 

      Gallien, L.; Altermatt, F.; Wiemers, M.; Schweiger, O.; Zimmermann, N.E. (John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2017)
      Aim Biological invasions are today the second-largest global threat for biodiversity. Once introduced, exotic plant species can modify ecosystem composition, structure and dynamics, eventually driving native species to ...
    • Long-distance migratory birds threatened by multiple independent risks from global change 

      Zurell, D.; Graham, C.H.; Gallien, L.; Thuiller, W.; Zimmermann, N.E. (Springer Nature Publishing, 2018)
      Many species migrate long distances annually between their breeding and wintering areas1. Although global change affects both ranges, impact assessments have generally focused on breeding ranges and ignored how environmental ...
    • Standards for distribution models in biodiversity assessments 

      Araujo, M.B.; Anderson, R.P.; Barbosa, A.M.; Beale, C.M.; Dormann, C.F.; Early, R.; Garcia, R.A.; Guisan, A.; Maiorano, L.; Naimi, B.; O'Hara, R.B.; Zimmermann, N.E.; Rahbek, C. (Creative Commons Attribution NonCommercial License 4.0, 2019)
      Demand for models in biodiversity assessments is rising, but which models are adequate for the task? We propose a set of best-practice standards and detailed guidelines enabling scoring of studies based on species distribution ...
