    • Biotic and abiotic drivers of intraspecific trait variation within plant populations of three herbaceous plant species along a latitudinal gradient 

      Helsen, Kenny; Acharya, Kamal Prasad; Brunet, J; Cousins, Sara A. O.; Decocq, Guillaume; Hermy, Martin; Kolb, Annette; Lemke, Isgard H.; Lenoir, Jonathan; Plue, Jan; Verheyen, Kris; De Frenne, Pieter; Graae, Bente Jessen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Background: The importance of intraspecific trait variation (ITV) is increasingly acknowledged among plant ecologists. However, our understanding of what drives ITV between individual plants (ITVBI) at the population level ...

      Species turnover is ubiquitous. However, it remains unknown whether certain types of species are consistently gained or lost across different habitats. Here, we analysed the trajectories of 1827 plant species over time ...

      Research in global change ecology relies heavily on global climatic grids derived from estimates of air temperature in open areas at around 2 m above the ground. These climatic grids do not reflect conditions below vegetation ...
    • Impact of an invasive alien plant on litter decomposition along a latitudinal gradient 

      Helsen, Kenny; Smith, Stuart; Brunet, J; Cousins, Sara A.O.; De Frenne, Pieter; Kimberley, Adam; Kolb, Annette; Lenoir, Jonathan; Ma, Shiyu; Michaelis, Jana; Pule, Jan; Verheyen, Kris; Speed, James David Mervyn; Graae, Bente Jessen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Invasive alien plant effects on ecosystem functions are often difficult to predict across environmental gradients due to the context-dependent interactions between the invader and the recipient communities. Adopting a ...
    • Stay or go – how topographic complexity influences alpine plant population and community responses to climate change 

      Graae, Bente Jessen; Vandvik, Vigdis; Armbruster, W. Scott; Eiserhardt, Wolf L.; Svenning, Jens-Christian; Hylander, Kristoffer; Ehrlén, Johan; Speed, James D.M.; Klanderud, Kari; Bråthen, Kari Anne; Milbau, Ann; Opedal, Øystein Hjorthol; Alsos, Inger G.; Ejrnæs, Rasmus; Bruun, Hans Henrik; Birks, H. John B.; Westergaard, Kristine Bakke; Birks, Hilary H; Lenoir, Jonathan (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      In the face of climate change, populations have two survival options − they can remain in situ and tolerate the new climatic conditions (“stay”), or they can move to track their climatic niches (“go”). For sessile and ...
    • Urban alien plants in temperate oceanic regions of Europe originate from warmer native ranges
