Nyairo, R., & Machimura, T. (2020). Potential Effects of Climate and Human Influence Changes on Range and Diversity of Nine Fabaceae Species and Implications for Nature’s Contribution to People in Kenya. Climate, 8(10), 109. doi:10.3390/cli8100109 https://doi.org/10.3390/cli8100109

Climate and land-use changes are the main drivers of species distribution. On the basis of current and future climate and socioeconomic scenarios, species range projections were made for nine species in the Fabaceae family. Modeled species have instrumental and relational values termed as nature’s c…

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…

Roalson, E. H., & Roberts, W. R. (2016). Distinct Processes Drive Diversification in Different Clades of Gesneriaceae. Systematic Biology, 65(4), 662–684. doi:10.1093/sysbio/syw012 https://doi.org/10.1093/sysbio/syw012

Using a time-calibrated phylogenetic hypothesis including 768 Gesneriaceae species (out of ~~ 3300 species) and more than 29,000 aligned bases from 26 gene regions, we test Gesneriaceae for diversification rate shifts and the possible proximal drivers of these shifts: geographic distributions, growt…

Chase, B. M., Boom, A., Carr, A. S., Chevalier, M., Quick, L. J., Verboom, G. A., & Reimer, P. J. (2019). Extreme hydroclimate response gradients within the western Cape Floristic region of South Africa since the Last Glacial Maximum. Quaternary Science Reviews, 219, 297–307. doi:10.1016/j.quascirev.2019.07.006 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.quascirev.2019.07.006

The Cape Floristic Region (CFR) is one of the world's major biodiversity hotspots, and much work has gone into identifying the drivers of this diversity. Considered regionally in the context of Quaternary climate change, climate stability is generally accepted as being one of the major factors promo…

Joyce, E., Thiele, K., Slik, F., & Crayn, D. (2020). Checklist of the vascular flora of the Sunda-Sahul Convergence Zone. Biodiversity Data Journal, 8. doi:10.3897/bdj.8.e51094 https://doi.org/10.3897/bdj.8.e51094

Background The Sunda-Sahul Convergence Zone, defined here as the area comprising Australia, New Guinea, and Southeast Asia (Indonesia to Myanmar), straddles the Sunda and Sahul continental shelves and is one of the most biogeographically famous and important regions in the world. Floristically, it i…

Larridon, I., Galán Díaz, J., Bauters, K., & Escudero, M. (2020). What drives diversification in a pantropical plant lineage with extraordinary capacity for long‐distance dispersal and colonization? Journal of Biogeography. doi:10.1111/jbi.13982 https://doi.org/10.1111/jbi.13982

Aim: Colonization of new areas may entail shifts in diversification rates linked to biogeographical movement (dispersification), which may involve niche evolution if species were not exapted to new environments. Scleria (Cyperaceae) includes c. 250 species and has a pantropical distribution suggesti…

Khaki Mponya, N., Chanyenga, T., Magos Brehm, J., & Maxted, N. (2020). In situ and ex situ conservation gap analyses of crop wild relatives from Malawi. Genetic Resources and Crop Evolution. doi:10.1007/s10722-020-01021-3 https://doi.org/10.1007/s10722-020-01021-3

The study analysed the conservation gaps of the priority crop wild relatives (CWR) taxa for Malawi in order to contribute to the development of a harmonized conservation strategy that helps secure the priority CWR under in situ and ex situ. We used taxa distribution modelling, complementarity analys…

Marciniuk, P., Marciniuk, J., Łysko, A., Krajewski, Ł., Chudecka, J., Skrzyczyńska, J., & Popiela, A. A. (2020). Rediscovery of Cyperus flavescens (Cyperaceae) on the northeast periphery of its range in Europe. PeerJ, 8, e9837. doi:10.7717/peerj.9837 https://doi.org/10.7717/peerj.9837

In recent years, three large populations of Cyperus flavescens were found in Poland, the richest occurrence of this species in over 30 years. The goal of this research is to determine the habitat factors lead to the mass occurrence of C. flavescens and the present situation of that species and its h…

Cross, A. T., Krueger, T. A., Gonella, P. M., Robinson, A. S., & Fleischmann, A. S. (2020). Conservation of carnivorous plants in the age of extinction. Global Ecology and Conservation, e01272. doi:10.1016/j.gecco.2020.e01272 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.gecco.2020.e01272

Carnivorous plants (CPs)—those possessing specific strategies to attract, capture and kill animal prey and obtain nutrition through the absorption of their biomass—are harbingers of anthropogenic degradation and destruction of ecosystems. CPs exhibit highly specialised and often very sensitive ecolo…
