Volume 107 Issue 6

Volume 107 Issue 6 of Journal of Ecology is now available online!

Our latest issue features papers ranging from patterns of nitrogen‐fixing tree abundance, to floral volatiles and biocrust‐plant interactions.

The Editor’s Choice paper for this issue is “Assessing the roles of seed bank, seed dispersal and historical disturbances for metapopulation persistence of a pyrogenic herb” by Quintana‐Ascencio et al. 

This paper demonstrates the pivotal role of seed dormancy, dispersal and fire history on population dynamics, distribution and abundance. Read more details in the blog by Associate Editor, Shurong Zhou.

The cover image for this issue was taken by Johan Martinelli and relates to the article “Experimental evidence of the long‐term effects of reindeer on Arctic vegetation greenness and species richness at a larger landscape scale” by Sundqvist et al. 

The photograph shows a reindeer (Rangifer tarandus L.) walking through a glacial valley. It was taken at Latnjajaure Field Station, in the northern Scandinavian mountain range.
