Long-term analyses of biodiversity data highlight a ‘biodiversity conservation paradox’: biological communities show substantial species turnover over the past century1,2, but changes in species richness are marginal1,3–5. Most studies, however, have focused only on the incidence of species, and have not considered changes in local abundance. Here...

Many of the Wadden Sea’s uninhabitated islands are characterized by strong geomorphological dynamics on multiple time scales. The salt marshes of Mellum, located beween the Weser and Jade estuaries on the Northwest-German coast, have made big increases in area during recent decades. Likewise, beaches, fore-dunes and pioneer zones of Mellum shifted...

Temperate deciduous forest communities are slow-changing systems, with herbaceous understorey communities displaying a delayed response to overstorey canopy and light dynamics. While light availability constrains herbaceous understorey diversity and composition in space and time, its response in the long-term absence of light has seldom been quanti...

Question: The eu-atlantic forest herb Ceratocapnos claviculata showed a recent increase in frequency within its native range and an eastward and northward range expansion in Central Europe. To gain deeper understanding of factors affecting the range expansion of the species, we analyzed vegetation relevés at three different scales and asked the fol...

Little is known about changes in the significance of environmental filtering and neutral processes during the succession of plant communities. Generally, a succession is expected to be trait-driven and a shift is predicted from high importanceof seed dispersal ability in initial phases to importance of strong competitive ability in later stages. In...
