Chu, X., Gugger, P. F., Li, L., Zhao, J., & Li, Q. (2021). Responses of an endemic species ( Roscoea humeana ) in the Hengduan Mountains to climate change. Diversity and Distributions. doi:10.1111/ddi.13397 https://doi.org/10.1111/ddi.13397

Aim: Adaptation, migration and extinction of species is closely associated with climate changes and shape the distribution of biodiversity. The adaptive responses of species in the biodiversity hotspot, the Hengduan Mountains, to climate change remain poorly understood. Location: The Hengduan Mount…

Rhodes, A. C., Plowes, R. M., Goolsby, J. A., Gaskin, J. F., Musyoka, B., Calatayud, P.-A., … Gilbert, L. E. (2021). The dilemma of Guinea grass (Megathyrsus maximus): a valued pasture grass and a highly invasive species. Biological Invasions. doi:10.1007/s10530-021-02607-3 https://doi.org/10.1007/s10530-021-02607-3

On a global scale, invasive grasses threaten biodiversity and ecosystem function. Nevertheless, the importation of forage grasses is a significant economic force driven by globalization. Pastureland and rangeland are of critical economic and ecological importance, but novel grass species may lead to…

Singh, M., Rajasekaran, A., & Kumar, L. (2021). Modeling potential hotspots of invasive Prosopis juliflora (Swartz) DC. In India. Ecological Informatics, 101386. doi:10.1016/j.ecoinf.2021.101386 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.ecoinf.2021.101386

Prosopis juliflora (Swartz) DC has become one of the world's 100 most dominant invasive species. It is spreading quickly in different parts of the country leading to growing public concern. Effective management of invasive plants requires information regarding their spatial distributions and identif…

Villasante Benavides, F., Pauca-Tanco, G. A., Luque-Fernández, C. R., Quispe-Turpo, J. del P., Villegas Paredes, L. N., Siegmund, A., & Koch, M. A. (2021). Distribution patterns, ecological niche and conservation status of endemic Tillandsia purpurea along the Peruvian coast. Plant Systematics and Evolution, 307(4). doi:10.1007/s00606-021-01773-0 https://doi.org/10.1007/s00606-021-01773-0

Species distribution modeling and assessment of the possible current conservation status for loma-forming Tillandsia purpurea Ruiz & Pavón in Peru were performed. This species is considered an epiarenic species that lives under hyperarid conditions, where its main source of water and nutrients comes…

Antúnez, P., Wehenkel, C., Kukunda, C. B., & Hernández-Díaz, J. C. (2021). Climatic Variables Differentially Influence Neotropical Plant Species of Conservation Concern. Journal of Sustainable Forestry, 1–16. doi:10.1080/10549811.2021.1944878 https://doi.org/10.1080/10549811.2021.1944878

Knowing how and to what extent environmental parameters affect threatened species facilitates the understanding of their specific microhabitat requirements. In this study, we examined the response patterns of four threatened tropical plant species to variations in temperature, precipitation, and phy…

De Souza, I. (2021). Thismia panamensis (Standl.) Jonker (Thismiaceae): first record for southern Brazil. Check List, 17(4), 1055–1059. doi:10.15560/17.4.1055 https://doi.org/10.15560/17.4.1055

A new southernmost record of Thismia panamensis (Standl.) Jonker in Brazil extends the occurrence of this species to the Atlantic Rainforest. This species was found in Parque Estadual Serra da Baitaca, in Paraná state, where other new records of mycoheterotrophic plants have recently been mad…

Maciel, E. A., Oliveira-Filho, A. T., Sobral-Souza, T. S., Marimon, B. S., Cupertino-Eisenlohr, M. A., José-Silva, L., & Eisenlohr, P. V. (2021). Climate change forecasts suggest that the conservation area network in the Cerrado-Amazon transition zone needs to be expanded. Acta Oecologica, 112, 103764. doi:10.1016/j.actao.2021.103764 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.actao.2021.103764

Climate change impacts are important in shaping large ecotones, such as the transition zone between the Cerrado and Amazon rainforest (CAT) biogeographical domains. The accelerating rate of conversion of native vegetation, the most important factor for biodiversity loss in the Anthropocene, compound…

Baumbach, L., Warren, D. L., Yousefpour, R., & Hanewinkel, M. (2021). Climate change may induce connectivity loss and mountaintop extinction in Central American forests. Communications Biology, 4(1). doi:10.1038/s42003-021-02359-9 https://doi.org/10.1038/s42003-021-02359-9

The tropical forests of Central America serve a pivotal role as biodiversity hotspots and provide ecosystem services securing human livelihood. However, climate change is expected to affect the species composition of forest ecosystems, lead to forest type transitions and trigger irrecoverable losses…
