Protea demography

Exploring drought impacts on the demography of serotinous Proteaceae

Functional traits explain the Hutchinsonian niches of plant species

[Access the paper here]( Aim: The Hutchinsonian niche is a foundational concept in ecology and evolutionary biology that describes fundamental characteristics of any species: the global maximum population growth rate …

Mismatches between demographic niches and geographic distributions are strongest in poorly dispersed and highly persistent plant species

[Access the paper here.]( Forecasts of global change impacts on biodiversity often assume that the current geographical distributions of species match their ecological niches. Here we examine this assumption …
