Globally distributed plants occupy a large proportion of the biodiversity on our planet, and the ecological and evolutionary mechanisms that determine plant diversity are incredibly successful. We are now living in times of dramatic environmental change triggered by human activities and climate changes. Increased pressure from both humans and the environment is accelerating biodiversity loss and changing biodiversity patterns. In this context, work aiming to understand the ecological and evolutionary mechanisms that drive plant diversity is important and interesting.
