New Publication | Mountain roads and non-native species modify elevational patterns of plant diversity
MIRENpaperThis paper by MIREN, published in Global Ecology and Biogeography is the first species patterns analysis on a global scale that includes native and non-native species. 

The authors investigated patterns of species richness and community dissimilarity along elevation gradients using globally replicated, standardized surveys of vascular plants. They asked how these patterns of diversity are influenced by anthropogenic pressures (road construction and non-native species).
