• 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 ...
    • Earlier onset of flowering and increased reproductive allocation of an annual invasive plant in the north of its novel range 

      Helsen, Kenny; Acharya, Kamal Prasad; Graae, Bente Jessen; De Kort, Hanne; Brunet, Jörg; Chabrerie, Olivier; Cousins, Sara A.O.; De Frenne, Pieter; Hermy, Martin; Verheyen, Kris; Pelabon, Christophe (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
    • 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 ...
    • No genetic erosion after five generations for Impatiens glandulifera populations across the invaded range in Europe 

      Helsen, Kenny; Hagenblad, Jenny; Acharya, Kamal Prasad; Brunet, Jörg; Cousins, Sara A. O.; Decocq, Guillaume; De Frenne, Pieter; Kimberley, Adam; Kolb, Anette; Michaelis, Jana; Plue, Jan; Verheyen, Kris; Speed, James D M; Graae, Bente Jessen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Background The observation that many alien species become invasive despite low genetic diversity has long been considered the ‘genetic paradox’ in invasion biology. This paradox is often resolved through the temporal ...
