At the edge of the sixth mass extinction, Anthropos continues the quest of “naming the other” with the promise that identifying all the species on Earth will be the main step of assuring their conservation. However, by self-positioning as the only name-giver, Anthropos has only sharpened the human-nonhuman dualism and restricted kinship to only Ant...
In the current biodiversity crisis, one of the crucial questions is how quickly plant communities can acclimate to climate warming and longer growing seasons to buffer the impairment of community functioning. Answering this question is pivotal especially for mountain grasslands that experience harsh conditions but provide essential ecosystem servic...

Modeling species distributions over space and time is one of the major research topics in both ecology and conservation biology. Joint Species Distribution models (JSDMs) have recently been introduced as a tool to better model community data, by inferring a residual covariance matrix between species, after accounting for species' response to the en...

West Anatolia (WA) has been a center of human population through the Holocene period. Theories about a past tree-cover reduction of this historically and biologically important spot are divergent between natural climatic and anthropogenic impacts. While WA climate changed from wetter to drier conditions throughout the Holocene, the latter preserves...
