Early positive spatial selection effects of beta-diversity on ecosystem functioning
Donnerstag, 09. November 2023
Abstract Context Metacommunity theory predicts that diversity arising at larger spatial scales (spatial β-diversity) may increase ecosystem functioning if there are positive spatial selection effects whereby species dominate in mixtures at places where they are most productive in monocultures. However, beta-diversity effects on ecosystem functioning remain understudied and unquantified experimentally...
Identifying a green infrastructure to prioritise areas for restoration to enhance the landscape connectivity and the provision of ecosystem services
Dienstag, 07. November 2023
Abstract Introduction Habitat fragmentation is one of the major causes of the loss of biodiversity that our planet is experiencing. This has affected the ecosystems functioning and, consequently, the provision of ecosystem services (ES). Therefore, the European Commission, in a 2013 communication, established the concept of Green Infrastructure (GI), which is a strategically planned network of multifunctional areas with the aim of...

Insectivorous bats in Indian rice fields respond to moonlight, temperature, and insect activity
Mittwoch, 01. November 2023
Abstract Context Rice, India’s most widely grown crop, suffers substantial and increasing yield loss to insect pests. Insectivorous bats are known suppressors of insect pests, providing significant economic value to agricultural systems worldwide, yet their ecology in Indian agricultural landscapes is poorly understood. Objectives We assess...
Robustness of resistance surface optimisations: sampling schemes and genetic distance metrics affect inferences in landscape genetics
Mittwoch, 01. November 2023
Abstract Context Landscape genetics provides powerful tools to quantify the effects of landscape features on population connectivity, but robust results are imperative to inform conservation planning. Objectives The robustness of landscape genetic inferences was assessed using the case of the northern crested newt (Triturus cristatus) in...
A multi-ecosystem prioritization framework to balance competing habitat conservation needs of multiple species in decline
Mittwoch, 01. November 2023
Abstract Context Individual species often drive habitat restoration action; however, management under this paradigm may negatively affect non-target species. Prioritization frameworks which explicitly consider benefits to target species while minimizing consequences for non-target species may improve management strategies and outcomes...
Land-use pattern and landscape structure impact butterfly diversity and abundance in organic agroecosystems
Mittwoch, 01. November 2023
Abstract Context Agricultural intensification and land-use patterns impact biodiversity and reduce ecosystem functions. Organic farming is often seen as a more biodiversity friendly way of farming. However, not all organic farming is equally supportive for biodiversity, structural diversity of the farms has a great impact and the often high intertwinement of organic and conventional farmland causes spill-over problems...
Urban wild bees benefit from flower-rich anthropogenic land use depending on bee trait and scale
Mittwoch, 01. November 2023
Abstract Context Wild bees are important pollinators for wild and cultivated plants. Besides other causes, their decline has been linked to land-use change such as urbanisation. In contrast, urban habitats are discussed as potential wild bee refuges. Objectives To expand our understanding of cities as wild bee habitats, bee responses to urban...

Landscape features drive insectivorous bat activity in Indian rice fields
Mittwoch, 01. November 2023
Abstract Context Insectivorous bats have been shown to control a number of agricultural insect pests. As bats exhibit species-specific responses to the surrounding landscape, tied closely to their morphology and foraging mode, the activity and distribution patterns of bats, and consequently the ecosystem services they provide, are influenced by the landscape characteristics...
Spatial patterns of native Robinia pseudoacacia and invasive Ailanthus altissima and their influence on regeneration, abundance, and diversity of neighboring trees at local and regional scales
Mittwoch, 01. November 2023
Abstract Context Native early-successional plants and invasive exotic plants often colonize the same disturbed space and have similar functions, making interactions likely. Knowing whether these interactions are facilitative or competitive across different scales will help determine the influence of such species across a forested landscape. Objective...
Rapid vegetation responses over the last seven decades revealed by an alpine ice core and land-cover patterns
Mittwoch, 01. November 2023
Abstract Context Syntheses of vegetation responses over the last century are rare for the Alps, and limited in chronological and taxonomical resolution. We propose that pollen records from glaciers can be used to fill this gap. Objectives Our aim is to evaluate the reliability of glacier pollen records as historical archives of biodiversity to...
Key attributes of greenspace pattern for heat mitigation vary with urban functional zones
Mittwoch, 01. November 2023
Abstract Context Urban green space (UGS) has been widely acknowledged to effectively reduce ambient temperature, and thus improving its cooling effect has become a hot topic in urban planning. Although the impact of UGS spatial pattern on land surface temperature (LST) has been investigated in previous studies, the differences caused by the heterogeneity of human activities within urban areas have not been fully understood...
Influence of forest proportion and configuration at the watershed and riparian zone scales on sediment yield: a simulation experiment
Mittwoch, 01. November 2023
Abstract Context Understanding how landscape pattern influences water quality is crucial for landscape planning and management aimed at providing hydrological services. Simulation modeling is a useful tool for exploring the effects of landscape heterogeneity on ecological processes. Objectives Evaluate how forest proportion and configuration...
Insect community reassembly in a spatiotemporally heterogenous restoration landscape
Mittwoch, 01. November 2023
Abstract Context Anthropogenic habitat degradation resulting from agricultural, mining, and urban development is a leading cause of global insect declines, but the recovery of insect communities and functional guilds is rarely assessed during ecological restoration. Objectives Assess the effects of vegetation community composition and structure...
Spatiotemporal patterns of rising annual plant abundance in grasslands of the Willamette Valley, Oregon (USA)
Mittwoch, 01. November 2023
Abstract Context Plant communities are undergoing compositional changes that affect ecosystem function. These changes are not always uniform across the landscape due to heterogenous topographic and edaphic conditions. To predict areas most at risk of change, it is necessary to identify the landscape drivers affecting plant abundance. Objectives...
Adapting a multiscale approach to assess the compositional diversity of landscapes
Mittwoch, 01. November 2023
Abstract Context The role of landscape diversity and structure is crucial for maintaining biodiversity. Both landscape diversity and structure have often been analysed on one thematic layer, focusing on Shannon diversity. The application of compositional diversity, however, has received little attention yet. Objectives Our main goal was to...
Land sparing and sharing patterns in forestry: exploring even-aged and uneven-aged management at the landscape scale
Mittwoch, 01. November 2023
Abstract Context Uneven-aged forest management is sometimes seen as offering interesting compromises between timber production and other important ecosystem services, compared to even-aged approaches. However, uncertainties remain concerning its impacts over longer time periods and broader spatial scales, as larger areas and further roads are required to harvest the same amount of wood...
