The use of a widespread fungal operational taxonomic unit in P. deformis enables a broad distribution despite high mycorrhizal specificity.
A study finds that three circumboreal lineages of Pyrola have arisen independently, and at least two of these appear to have originated in Asia.
The inferred biogeographic history highlights long-distance dispersal as a major process shaping the worldwide distribution of the genus Pteris.
Miscanthus ornamental cultivars originate almost exclusively from southern Japan, & many marketed as M. sinensis have hybrid ancestry from M. sacchariflorus
A review of the origins of the plant functional type concept also addresses the current state of models that use PFTs in northern high-latitude ecosystems.
The influence of climate on the mechanisms employed by Nepenthes in prey capture and retention.
Africa was apparently colonized by grasses twice from two different sources, Europe and East Asia.
The importance of the combined effect of geomorphological and climatic factors in shaping plant species distribution.
If 2009 ‘belonged’ to Charles Darwin then, if there’s any justice in the world, 2013 has to be ‘owned’ by Alfred Russel Wallace.
