Article in Nature Plants

The new paper published in Nature Plants explores how seed production in perennial plants, like European beech (Fagus sylvatica), synchronizes across vast distances, affecting ecosystem functions. The study reveals that the summer solstice serves as a celestial cue, triggering synchronized responses to weather conditions among widely separated populations of European beech. This ‘starting gun’ initiates [...]

Article in Biological Reviews

The journal Biological Reviews has published a paper authored by Anna Skoracka, Lechosław Kuczynski and Jacek Radwan and colleagues from the University of Lisbon and the University of Montpellier (https://doi.org/10.1111/brv.13018). It is a review publication that explains the evolutionary and ecological relationships between dispersal and host specialization using herbivorous arthropods as a model group. The [...]

Publication in Methods in Ecology and Evolution

The journal Methods in Ecology and Evolution (https://doi.org/10.1111/2041-210X.14176) has published a paper by Katarzyna Malinowska, Katarzyna Markowska and Lechoslaw Kuczynski. The paper describes a new algorithm for generating so-called "virtual species." Virtual species are synthetic data structures that replicate the spatial distribution of real organisms. They are used to test various statistical tools, as well [...]

Article in Global Change Biology: masting breakdown and tree size

Climate change continues to reshape our natural ecosystems, and its impact on tree populations is a topic of great concern. Recent study (link: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/gcb.16730) led by Michal Bogdziewicz investigating the response of European beech (Fagus sylvatica) to climate warming has uncovered intriguing insights into the complex relationship between tree reproduction, climate change, and forest dynamics.

Publication in Nature Ecology and Evolution

In a recent paper (link) Jon Parrett and co-authors from our Institute and Ghent University provided genomic evidence from mites with sexually selected weapon  that this costly trait captures genome-wide variation and facilitates the purging of genetic load from populations.

A new article in Animal Behaviour about the greater diversity of personalities among urban than rural shrews

Leszek Rychlik and co-authors (mainly from the University of Lisbon, Portugal) tested average differences in behaviour as well as the inter-individual variation in behaviour in rural and urban populations of shrews belonging to two species differing in life history and time since synurbanization: the fast-paced Sorex araneus and the slow-paced Crocidura russula. As predicted, [...]
