Uncertainties from sampling biases present challenges to ecologists and evolutionary biologists in understanding species sensitivity to anthropogenic climate change. Here, we synthesize possible impediments that can constrain research to assess present and future seagrass response from climate chang…

Aim: The study of biogeographic barriers is instrumental in understanding the evolution and distribution of taxa. With the increasing availability of empirical datasets, emergent patterns can be inferred from communities by synthesizing how barriers filter and structure populations across species. W…

The Amazon forest is vulnerable to climate change and anthropic actions, such as fire and deforestation, which together represent a troubling scenario. Many traditional populations that inhabit the region depend on non-timber forest resources for food or economic sustenance. We demonstrated that cli…

The Eragrostis pilosa complex (Poaceae) comprises five widely distributed and regionally invasive species—E. albensis, E. amurensis, E. imberbis, E. multicaulis, and E. pilosa, distinguished by tiny and variable morphological characters and with so far unknown phylogenetic relationships. Recently, s…

Ripartites tricholoma collected in the Nature Reserve Altos de Cantillana, near Santiago is described as a first record of this fungal genus and species for Chile. This is a contribution to the knowledge of fungal diversity in Nothofagus macrocarpa dominated forest close to its northern limit of dis…

Identifying the distributional range and climatically suitable habitat of a species are crucial for developing an effective conservation strategy. This study aims to simulate the current distribution of climatically suitable habitat for a threatened medicinal tree, Oroxylum indicum (L.) Kurz in Indi…

The coastal zone, where most of the Brazilian population lives, plays a central role for discussing vulnerability and adaptation strategies to climate change. Besides saltmarshes, mangroves and coral reefs, this region also presents seagrass beds, macroalgae and rhodolith beds, forming underwater fo…

During the last century, the practice of fur farming in Europe led to the introduction of two mammal species from opposite ends of the world. With their subsequent unintentional escape from captivity or intentional releases, the process of slow expansion and establishment in Europe began. The raccoo…

Paullinieae are a diverse group of tropical and subtropical climbing plants that belong to the soapberry family (Sapindaceae). The six genera in this tribe make up approximately one-quarter of the species in the family, but a sparse fossil record limits our understanding of their diversification. He…

Wide‐range geographically discontinuous distributions have long intrigued scientists. We explore the role of ecology, geology, and dispersal in the formation of these large‐scale disjunctions, using the angiosperm tribe Putorieae (Rubiaceae) as a case study. From DNA sequences of nuclear ITS and six…
