Can we predict evolution?
Contemporary climate change may cause many extinctions in the near future, but it is also likely to lead to rapid evolution. Can we predict how this evolution will occur? We believe so, and showcase how using vegetative dormancy in 3 orchid species.
Why are some plants non-photosynthetic?
Plant species have evolved to shun the sunlight, instead relying on their soil-fungal symbionts as energy sources. In this study, we look into the evolutionary origins of this condition, linking microevolutionary demographic patterns to speciation.
Conserving European orchids
Orchid species are on the decline in Europe. In this study, we analyze environmental factors impacting the distributions of Red Listed species, and offer advice on management strategies to prevent extinction.
