SPECIAL ISSUE Plants and Climate Change
Cover illustration: The inset cover image shows Protea nitida, a common shrub in the fynbos of the South African Cape Province, a habitat thought to be particularly susceptible to the impacts of anthropogenic climate change. Although there is a general consensus that many plant species have shifted their geographic ranges, seasonality, abundances, and species interactions in response to ongoing climate change, departures from model expectations are common. We show however that experimental complexities and surprises are not only common, but that they actually offer a way forward in our understanding of how climate variation will affect plant species and communities over coming decades.
