  1. doi request reprint Ecological assembly rules in plant communities--approaches, patterns and prospects
    Lars Götzenberger
    Department of Botany, University of Tartu, Tartu, Estonia
    Biol Rev Camb Philos Soc 87:111-27. 2012
    ..We underpin this general advice with guidelines that should be considered in future assembly rules research. This will enable us to draw more accurate and general conclusions about the non-random aspect of assembly in plant communities...
  2. ncbi request reprint Contrasting plant productivity-diversity relationships across latitude: the role of evolutionary history
    Meelis Pärtel
    Institute of Botany and Ecology, University of Tartu, 40 Lai Street, Tartu 51005 Estonia
    Ecology 88:1091-7. 2007
    ..In summary, the shape of the productivity-diversity relationship differs between temperate and tropical regions and the different evolutionary history of the local species pools is a probable cause for the difference...
  3. ncbi request reprint Dark diversity: shedding light on absent species
    Meelis Pärtel
    Institute of Ecology and Earth Sciences, University of Tartu, Lai 40, Tartu 51005, Estonia
    Trends Ecol Evol 26:124-8. 2011
    ..We illustrate the dark diversity concept by globally mapping plant dark diversity and the local:dark diversity ratio...
  4. doi request reprint A negative heterogeneity-diversity relationship found in experimental grassland communities
    Antonio Gazol
    Institute of Ecology and Earth Sciences, University of Tartu, Lai 40, 51005, Tartu, Estonia
    Oecologia 173:545-55. 2013
    ..Additionally, small-scale soil heterogeneity may lower diversity indirectly, through increasing light competition, when nutrient uptake by competitive species increases shoot biomass production...
  5. doi request reprint Past and present effectiveness of protected areas for conservation of naturally and anthropogenically rare plant species
    Ain Vellak
    University of Tartu, Institute of Ecology and Earth Sciences, Department of Botany, 40 Lai Str Tartu 51005, Estonia
    Conserv Biol 23:750-7. 2009
    ..Different species groups, however, may not be uniformly conserved within protected areas, and all species groups should fulfill the target of 60% coverage within protected areas...

    Jodi N Price
    Department of Botany, University of Tartu, Lai 40, 51005 Tartu, Estonia
    Ecology 93:1290-6. 2012
    ..Belowground assembly is largely driven by abiotic processes, with little evidence for competition-driven assembly, and this has implications for plant coexistence theories that are based on competition for soil resources...

    Inga Hiiesalu
    Department of Botany, University of Tartu, Tartu, Estonia
