1. Flip it and reverse it: reasonable changes in designated controls can flip synergisms to antagonisms.

Ecological systems are subjected to multiple stressors that can interact in complex ways resulting in "ecological surprises". We examine the pivotal role of 'control' assignment in the categorization of stressors into five classes: additive, +synergistic, -synergistic, +antagonistic, and...

3. A new method for indicator species analysis in the framework of multivariate analysis of variance.

Question: In vegetation science, the compositional dissimilarity among two or more groups of plots is usually tested with dissimilarity-based multivariate analysis of variance (db-MANOVA), whereas the compositional characterization of the different groups is performed by means of indicator species...

5. Exploring interaction effects from mechanisms between climate and land-use changes and the projected consequences on biodiversity.

Changes in climate and land use are major drivers of biodiversity loss. These drivers likely interact and their mutual effects alter biodiversity. These interaction mechanisms are rarely considered in biodiversity assessments, as only the combined individual effects are reported. In this study, we...

7. Unifying community detection across scales from genomes to landscapes.

Biodiversity science encompasses multiple disciplines and biological scales from molecules to landscapes. Nevertheless, biodiversity data are often analyzed separately with discipline-specific methodologies, constraining resulting inferences to a single scale. To overcome this, we present a topic...
