Acta Biologica Plantarum Agriensis 9(1): 48. <http://abpa.ektf.hu/uploads/papers/finalpdf/ABPA_9(1)_from48to48.pdf>
Article
Understanding spatial variation in species composition of different communities is key to understanding the processes that generate and maintain biodiversity. The partitioning of diversity into hierarchical scale-related components is an interesting approach to quantitatively defining the overall net biodiversity from hierarchically scaled studies...

FOCUS AREA (1) Understanding the effect of climate change on biodiversity and ecosystem functioning ('BEF'); (2) Catalyzing biodiversity knowledge production that can guide policy makers and civil society to effectively participate in sustainable management; (3) Engaging and supporting early career scientists and students to study climate change an...
Article
Describing spatial variation in species richness and understanding its links to ecological mechanisms are complementary approaches for explaining geographical patterns of richness. The study of elevational gradients holds enormous potential for understanding the factors underlying global diversity. This paper investigates the pattern of species ric...
Thesis
A central goal of ecology is to understand the influence of biodiversity on ecosystem functioning and the processes that determine the composition and diversity of biological assemblages. In this thesis, I investigate the regional and global context of the bryophytes of Madagascar, an ecologically important but poorly studied group, and the factors...

Community ecology aims at understanding how species assemble and coexist in relation with the biotic and abiotic environment. Ecological communities are traditionally identified through a multitude of methods, from classification by hand to refined statistical methods based on similarity indices and clustering methods. A recent review concluded tha...

Full-text available
This updated checklist of the bryophytes of Madagascar was compiled from the literature, herbarium and recent collections. A total of 1144 species and infraspecific taxa are recorded for Madagascar composed of 751 mosses, 390 liverworts and 3 hornworts. 28.67% of the species reported for the Island are endemics. Twenty-four taxa are newly recorded...
