International Biological Flora: Ceratonia siliqua (2024)
Journal Article
Thomas, P. A., Garcia‐Martí, X., Mukassabi, T. A., & Tous, J. (in press). International Biological Flora: Ceratonia siliqua. Journal of Ecology, https://doi.org/10.1111/1365-2745.14325

This account presents information on all aspects of the biology of Ceratonia siliqua L. (Carob) that are relevant to understanding its ecological characteristics and behaviour. The main topics are presented within the standard framework of the Intern... Read More about International Biological Flora: Ceratonia siliqua.

Should the relationship between leaf margin and temperature be re‐defined for areas with colder climates? (2024)
Journal Article
Iszkuło, G., Tyrała‐Wierucka, Ż., Thomas, P. A., Terlecka, M., Walas, Ł., & Tomaszewski, D. (in press). Should the relationship between leaf margin and temperature be re‐defined for areas with colder climates?. Journal of Biogeography, https://doi.org/10.1111/jbi.14855

Aim The well-proven positive correlation between the increased proportion of entire-leaved woody dicotyledonous species and increased mean annual temperature has been commonly used to estimate temperature in the past. However, in regions of colder c... Read More about Should the relationship between leaf margin and temperature be re‐defined for areas with colder climates?.

First light and reionization epoch simulations (FLARES) IX: the physical mechanisms driving compact galaxy formation and evolution (2023)
Journal Article
Roper, W. J., Lovell, C. C., Vijayan, A. P., Irodotou, D., Kuusisto, J. K., Matharu, J., …Wilkins, S. M. (2023). First light and reionization epoch simulations (FLARES) IX: the physical mechanisms driving compact galaxy formation and evolution. Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 526(4),

In the First Light And Reionization Epoch Simulations (FLARES) suite of hydrodynamical simulations, we find the high-redshift (z > 5) intrinsic size–luminosity relation is, surprisingly, negatively sloped. However, after including the effects of dust... Read More about First light and reionization epoch simulations (FLARES) IX: the physical mechanisms driving compact galaxy formation and evolution.

Evolutionary history of Castanea sativa in the Caucasus driven by Middle and Late Pleistocene paleoenvironmental changes (2023)
Journal Article
Beridze, B., Sękiewicz, K., Walas, Ł., Thomas, P. A., Danelia, I., Kvartskhava, G., …Dering, M. (2023). Evolutionary history of Castanea sativa in the Caucasus driven by Middle and Late Pleistocene paleoenvironmental changes. AoB PLANTS, 15(5), https://doi.org/10.1093/aobpla/plad059

Due to global climate cooling and aridification since the Paleogene, members of the Neogene flora were extirpated from the Northern Hemisphere or were confined to a few refugial areas. For some species, the final reduction/extinction came in the Plei...

Masting is uncommon in trees that depend on mutualist dispersers in the context of global climate and fertility gradients (2023)
Journal Article
Qiu, T., Aravena, M., Ascoli, D., Bergeron, Y., Bogdziewicz, M., Boivin, T., …Clark, J. S. (in press). Masting is uncommon in trees that depend on mutualist dispersers in the context of global climate and fertility gradients. Nature Plants, 9(7), 1044-1056. https://doi.org/10.1038/s41477-023-01446-5

The benefits of masting (volatile, quasi-synchronous seed production at lagged intervals) include satiation of seed predators, but these benefits come with a cost to mutualist pollen and seed dispersers. If the evolution of masting represents a balan... Read More about Masting is uncommon in trees that depend on mutualist dispersers in the context of global climate and fertility gradients.
