Aims Understanding fine-grain diversity patterns across large spatial extents is fundamental for macroecological research and biodiversity conservation. Using the GrassPlot database, we provide benchmarks of fine-grain richness values of Palaearctic open habitats for vascular plants, bryophytes, lichens and complete vegetation (i.e., the sum of the...
Article
Recently-restored forests on former agricultural land have impoverished herbaceous understories. This is partly due to the poor colonizing capacity of understory plants, which makes them slow in responding to land use change. Functional traits can be used to compare old and recent understories and provide insight about which plant syndromes are mis...
Article
The Atlantic territories of western Europe and their surrounding areas are cohabited by two different species of ivies (Hedera), which are morphologically very similar, although they present different ploidy levels: Hedera helix (2x) and Hedera hibernica (4x). Concerning the northwest Atlantic Iberian territories and their surrounding areas, there...

Article
The genus Pimpinella L. comprises about 150 species, being one of the largest genera within the family Apiaceae (subfamily Apioideae). Previous molecular phylogenetic studies have shown that Pimpinella is a taxonomically complex group. In this study, evolutionary relationships among representatives from Western Europe have been inferred from phylog...

Purpose phytoremediation with native species is a low cost technique for recovering contaminated soils avoiding ecological risks associated to the use of non-native species. Materials and methods six ancient mining tailings extremely contaminated by heavy metal(oid)s (Pb, Zn, As and Hg) were sampled in the Principality of Asturias (northern Spain)...
Article
Full-text available
Seed germination traits in alpine grasslands are poorly understood, despite the sensitivity of these communities to climate change. This article tests the hypothesis that germination traits predict plant species occurrence along the alpine-subalpine elevation gradient. A phylogenetic comparative analysis was performed using fresh seeds from twenty-...

Article
Full-text available
The impact of habitat fragmentation and isolation on the genetic diversity of populations has attracted much attention in studies of plant conservation. The central-peripheral population hypothesis predicts that peripheral populations have reduced genetic variability, so it is often assumed that they deserve higher conservation priority over centra...
