Naturalization of European plants on other continents: The role of donor habitats
(National Academy of Science, 2017)
The success of European plant species as aliens worldwide is thought to reflect their association with human-disturbed environments. However, an explicit test including all human-made, semi natural and natural habitat types ...
Identifying alien bryophytes taking into account uncertainties: a reply to Patiño & Vanderpoorten
(John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2015)
Recently, Pati~no & Vanderpoorten (2015, Journal of Biogeography, 42, doi:10.1111/ jbi.12492) commented on our manuscripts about patterns and processes of global bryophyte invasions. In particular, they argued that the ...
The hidden side of plant invasions: the role of genome size
(New Phytologist Trust, 2015)
The ecological role ofgenomesize in plant biology, biogeography, and morphology has garnered increasing attention as the methods and technology associated with measuring cytological characteristics have become more reliable ...
Remoteness promotes biological invasions on islands worldwide
(National Academy of Sciences, 2018)
One of the best-known general patterns in island biogeography is the species–isolation relationship (SIR), a decrease in the number of native species with increasing island isolation that is linked to lower rates of natural ...
The role of fruit heteromorphism in the naturalization of Asteraceae
Background and Aims Fruit heteromorphism is considered to be a bet-hedging strategy to cope with spatially or temporally heterogeneous environments. The different behaviours of the fruit morphs of the same species might ...
