Iberian Peninsula is a kind of mountainous region and a very impressive place to study biodiversity and climate change. Supported by the Miguel(s)' team, I went around the peninsula twice from April to June, and easily caught the shining sun, rain, snow and hailstone. We finally managed to perform the field microcosm experiments similar to our [...] Read more

Geographic range & climatic variability on mountainsides

Range size, the ‘fundamental unit’ of macroecology, is generally geographically limited, and few species are ubiquitously distributed, even for microorganisms (e.g., bacteria and diatoms). The systematic variation in range size along geographical gradients (i.e., elevation or latitude) represents an important underlying driver of species richness [...] Read more
