Published on

A PechaKucha presentation for positive plant interactions in ecology. Facilitation is described with a focus on the mechanistic pathways associated with shrubs. The research described in 'A systematic review and conceptual framework for the mechanistic pathways of nurse plants' published in Global Ecology & Biogeography (2014) is summarized.
