PLOS ONE: Combining a Climatic Niche Model of an Invasive Fungus with Its Host Species Distributions to Identify Risks to Natural Assets: Puccinia psidii Sensu Lato in Australia

PLOS ONE: Combining a Climatic Niche Model of an Invasive Fungus with Its Host Species Distributions to Identify Risks to Natural Assets: Puccinia psidii Sensu Lato in Australia | Eucalypt Response to Climate | Scoop.it

This new climatic niche model for P. psidii s.l. indicates a higher degree of cold tolerance; and hence a potential range that extends into higher altitudes and latitudes than has been indicated previously. The methods demonstrated here provide some insight into the impacts an invasive species might have within its climatically suited range, and can help inform biosecurity policies regarding the management of its spread and protection of valued threatened assets.

Alastair Reed's insight:

Great example of the modelling of species distributions with relatively simple methods/equipment, here for a fungus that could potentially have a large effect in sub-alpine communities

Industrial-age changes in atmospheric [CO2] and temperature differentially alter responses of faster- and slower-growing Eucalyptus seedlings to short-term drought

Industrial-age changes in atmospheric [CO2] and temperature differentially alter responses of faster- and slower-growing Eucalyptus seedlings to short-term drought | Eucalypt Response to Climate | Scoop.it
Alastair Reed's insight:

Another step closer to predicting the effects of climate-change on subalpine plant communities. Here we look at how rising CO2 will alter the interplay at ecotones as well as post-fire regeneration.

Alastair Reed's insight:

Why I describe as a nurse tree. Sole Eucalypts becoming pioneers in virgin country, generally above the old tree-line. Obviously this is a planted one but many natural examples exist.
