Paź-Dyderska, S., Jagodziński, A. M., & Dyderski, M. K. (2021). Possible changes in spatial distribution of walnut (Juglans regia L.) in Europe under warming climate. Regional Environmental Change, 21(1). doi:10.1007/s10113-020-01745-z https://doi.org/10.1007/s10113-020-01745-z

Juglans regia L. is a species of great importance for environmental management due to attractive wood and nutritious fruits, but also high invasive potential. Thus, uncertainties connected with its range shift are essential for environmental management. We aimed to predict the future climatic optimu…

Allstädt, F. J., Koutsodendris, A., Appel, E., Rösler, W., Reichgelt, T., Kaboth-Bahr, S., … Pross, J. (2021). Late Pliocene to early Pleistocene climate dynamics in western North America based on a new pollen record from paleo-Lake Idaho. Palaeobiodiversity and Palaeoenvironments. doi:10.1007/s12549-020-00460-1 https://doi.org/10.1007/s12549-020-00460-1

Marked by the expansion of ice sheets in the high latitudes, the intensification of Northern Hemisphere glaciation across the Plio/Pleistocene transition at ~ 2.7 Ma represents a critical interval of late Neogene climate evolution. To date, the characteristics of climate change in North America duri…

Wang, B., Zhang, S.-H., Zhang, P., Yang, Y.-H., Chen, J.-Y., Zhang, Y., & Xie, S.-P. (2021). A new occurrence of Craigia (Malvaceae) from the Miocene of Yunnan and its biogeographic significance. Historical Biology, 1–11. doi:10.1080/08912963.2020.1867980 https://doi.org/10.1080/08912963.2020.1867980

The living fossil Craigia consists only two species Craigia yunnanensis W.W. Smith et W.E. Evans and Craigia kwangsiensis H.H. Hsue, endemic to East Asia. Craigia is a typical palaeoendemic genus, with an extensive fossil record in the Northern Hemisphere (North America, Europe and Asia); but there …

Jia, L.-B., Nam, G.-S., Su, T., Stull, G. W., Li, S.-F., Huang, Y.-J., & Zhou, Z.-K. (2021). Fossil fruits of Firmiana and Tilia from the middle Miocene of South Korea and the efficacy of the Bering land bridge for the migration of mesothermal plants. Plant Diversity. doi:10.1016/j.pld.2020.12.006 https://doi.org/10.1016/j.pld.2020.12.006

Determining whether the high-latitude Bering land bridge (BLB) was ecologically suitable for the migration of mesothermal plants is significant for Holarctic phytogeographic inferences. Paleobotanical studies provide a critical source of data on the latitudinal positions of different plant lineages …

SETYAWAN, A. D., Supriatna, J., Nisyawati, Nursamsi, I., SUTARNO, S., SUGIYARTO, S., … INDRAWAN, M. (2020). Anticipated climate changes reveal shifting in habitat suitability of high-altitude selaginellas in Java, Indonesia. Biodiversitas Journal of Biological Diversity, 21(11). doi:10.13057/biodiv/d211157 https://doi.org/10.13057/biodiv/d211157

Anticipated climate changes reveal shifting in habitat suitability of high-altitude selaginellas in Java, Indonesia. Biodiversitas 21: 5482-5497. High-altitude ecosystems with humid and cool climate are the preferred habitat for some Selaginella species (selaginellas). Such habitats are available in…

Brendel, M. R., Schurr, F. M., & Sheppard, C. S. (2020). Inter‐ and intraspecific selection in alien plants: How population growth, functional traits and climate responses change with residence time. Global Ecology and Biogeography. doi:10.1111/geb.13228 https://doi.org/10.1111/geb.13228

Aim: When alien species are introduced to new ranges, climate or trait mismatches may initially constrain their population growth. However, inter‐ and intraspecific selection in the new environment should cause population growth rates to increase with residence time. Using a species‐for‐time approac…

Deanna, R., Wilf, P., & Gandolfo, M. A. (2020). New physaloid fruit‐fossil species from early Eocene South America. American Journal of Botany, 107(12), 1749–1762. doi:10.1002/ajb2.1565 https://doi.org/10.1002/ajb2.1565

Premise: Solanaceae is a scientifically and economically important angiosperm family with a minimal fossil record and an intriguing early evolutionary history. Here, we report a newly discovered fossil lantern fruit with a suite of features characteristic of Physalideae within Solanaceae. The fossil…

Zanatta, F., Engler, R., Collart, F., Broennimann, O., Mateo, R. G., Papp, B., … Vanderpoorten, A. (2020). Bryophytes are predicted to lag behind future climate change despite their high dispersal capacities. Nature Communications, 11(1). doi:10.1038/s41467-020-19410-8 https://doi.org/10.1038/s41467-020-19410-8

The extent to which species can balance out the loss of suitable habitats due to climate warming by shifting their ranges is an area of controversy. Here, we assess whether highly efficient wind-dispersed organisms like bryophytes can keep-up with projected shifts in their areas of suitable climate.…

Inventories of species recently extinct or threatened with extinction may be found in global databases. However, despite the large number of published fossil based-studies, specific databases on the vulnerability of species in the past are not available. We compiled a worldwide database of published…
