Chauvel, B., Fried, G., Follak, S., Chapman, D., Kulakova, Y., Le Bourgeois, T., … Regnier, E. (2021). Monographs on invasive plants in Europe N° 5: Ambrosia trifida L. Botany Letters, 1–24. doi:10.1080/23818107.2021.1879674 https://doi.org/10.1080/23818107.2021.1879674

Ambrosia trifida L. (giant ragweed, Asteraceae) is native to the North American continent and was introduced into Europe and Asia at the end of the 19th century. In its native range, this tall annual species is common in riparian and ruderal habitats and is also a major weed in annual cropping syste…

Cahyaningsih, R., Magos Brehm, J., & Maxted, N. (2021). Gap analysis of Indonesian priority medicinal plant species as part of their conservation planning. Global Ecology and Conservation, 26, e01459. doi:10.1016/j.gecco.2021.e01459 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.gecco.2021.e01459

Indonesia is a country rich in medicinal plant biodiversity. The conservation and sustainable use of such species in Indonesia are critical because of incipient population growth, changing land usage, forest clearance, and climate change in a country where most of the population depends on tradition…

Pang, S. E. H., De Alban, J. D. T., & Webb, E. L. (2021). Effects of climate change and land cover on the distributions of a critical tree family in the Philippines. Scientific Reports, 11(1). doi:10.1038/s41598-020-79491-9 https://doi.org/10.1038/s41598-020-79491-9

Southeast Asian forests are dominated by the tree family Dipterocarpaceae, whose abundance and diversity are key to maintaining the structure and function of tropical forests. Like most biodiversity, dipterocarps are threatened by deforestation and climate change, so it is crucial to understand the …

Allstädt, F. J., Koutsodendris, A., Appel, E., Rösler, W., Reichgelt, T., Kaboth-Bahr, S., … Pross, J. (2021). Late Pliocene to early Pleistocene climate dynamics in western North America based on a new pollen record from paleo-Lake Idaho. Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeoenvironments. doi:10.1007/s12549-020-00460-1 https://doi.org/10.1007/s12549-020-00460-1

Marked by the expansion of ice sheets in the high latitudes, the intensification of Northern Hemisphere glaciation across the Plio/Pleistocene transition at ~ 2.7 Ma represents a critical interval of late Neogene climate evolution. To date, the characteristics of climate change in North America duri…

SETYAWAN, A. D., Supriatna, J., Nisyawati, Nursamsi, I., SUTARNO, S., SUGIYARTO, S., … INDRAWAN, M. (2020). Anticipated climate changes reveal shifting in habitat suitability of high-altitude selaginellas in Java, Indonesia. Biodiversitas Journal of Biological Diversity, 21(11). doi:10.13057/biodiv/d211157 https://doi.org/10.13057/biodiv/d211157

Anticipated climate changes reveal shifting in habitat suitability of high-altitude selaginellas in Java, Indonesia. Biodiversitas 21: 5482-5497. High-altitude ecosystems with humid and cool climate are the preferred habitat for some Selaginella species (selaginellas). Such habitats are available in…

Cours, J., Larrieu, L., Lopez-Vaamonde, C., Müller, J., Parmain, G., Thorn, S., & Bouget, C. (2021). Contrasting responses of habitat conditions and insect biodiversity to pest- or climate-induced dieback in coniferous mountain forests. Forest Ecology and Management, 482, 118811. doi:10.1016/j.foreco.2020.118811 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.foreco.2020.118811

Natural disturbances are major drivers of forest dynamics. However, in the current context of anthropogenic global warming, shifts in disturbance regimes are expected. Natural disturbances usually leave biological or structural legacies which are important for early-successional species. Nevertheles…

Deanna, R., Wilf, P., & Gandolfo, M. A. (2020). New physaloid fruit‐fossil species from early Eocene South America. American Journal of Botany, 107(12), 1749–1762. doi:10.1002/ajb2.1565 https://doi.org/10.1002/ajb2.1565

Premise: Solanaceae is a scientifically and economically important angiosperm family with a minimal fossil record and an intriguing early evolutionary history. Here, we report a newly discovered fossil lantern fruit with a suite of features characteristic of Physalideae within Solanaceae. The fossil…

Jayathilake, D. R. M., & Costello, M. J. (2020). A modelled global distribution of the kelp biome. Biological Conservation, 252, 108815. doi:10.1016/j.biocon.2020.108815 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.biocon.2020.108815

Kelp, seaweeds of the order Laminariales, are of ecological and conservation importance because they form undersea forest habitat for many varieties of fauna and flora including mammals, and commercial fish species. In the absence of a world map of the kelp biome, we predicted its potential distribu…

Zanatta, F., Engler, R., Collart, F., Broennimann, O., Mateo, R. G., Papp, B., … Vanderpoorten, A. (2020). Bryophytes are predicted to lag behind future climate change despite their high dispersal capacities. Nature Communications, 11(1). doi:10.1038/s41467-020-19410-8 https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-020-19410-8

The extent to which species can balance out the loss of suitable habitats due to climate warming by shifting their ranges is an area of controversy. Here, we assess whether highly efficient wind-dispersed organisms like bryophytes can keep-up with projected shifts in their areas of suitable climate.…

Rozefelds, A. C., Stull, G., Hayes, P., & Greenwood, D. R. (2020). The fossil record of Icacinaceae in Australia supports long-standing Palaeo-Antarctic rainforest connections in southern high latitudes. Historical Biology, 1–11. doi:10.1080/08912963.2020.1832089 https://doi.org/10.1080/08912963.2020.1832089

Fossil fruits of Icacinaceae are recorded from two Cenozoic sites in Australia, at Launceston in northern Tasmania and the Poole Creek palaeochannel in northern South Australia, representing the first report of fossil Icacinaceae from Australia. The Launceston material includes two endocarps with br…
