      The Aegean archipelago: A natural laboratory of evolution, ecology and civilisations 

      Sfenthourakis, Spyros; Triantis, Kostas A. (2017)
      The Aegean archipelago, comprising numerous islands and islets with great heterogeneity in topographic, geological, historical and environmental properties, offers an ideal natural laboratory for ecological and evolutionary ...

      Between-island compositional dissimilarity of avian communities 

      Pitta, Eva; Kassara, Christina; Tzanatos, Evangelos; Giokas, Sinos; Sfenthourakis, Spyros (2014)
      Compositional dissimilarity patterns of biotic communities can vary among different types of insular systems and among taxa with different dispersal abilities. In this work we examined compositional dissimilarity patterns ...

      Habitat diversity, ecological requirements of species and the Small Island Effect 

      Sfenthourakis, Spyros; Triantis, Kostas A. (2009)
      Aim: To explore the causal factors leading to a significant Small Island Effect (SIE), that is, the absence of the commonly found species-area relationships below an island size, on the terrestrial isopod communities from ...

      Island species richness increases with habitat diversity 

      Hortal, J.; Triantis, Kostas A.; Meiri, S.; Thébault, E.; Sfenthourakis, Spyros (2009)
      Species richness is commonly thought to increase with habitat diversity. However, a recent theoretical model aiming to unify niche and island biogeography theories predicted a hump-shaped relationship between richness and ...

      Patterns of species richness on very small islands: The plants of the Aegean archipelago 

      Panitsa, M.; Tzanoudakis, D.; Triantis, Kostas A.; Sfenthourakis, Spyros (2006)
      Aim: To investigate the species-area relationship (SAR) of plants on very small islands, to examine the effect of other factors on species richness, and to check for a possible Small Island Effect (SIE). Location: The study ...

      The species-area relationship of terrestrial isopods (Isopoda 

      Sfenthourakis, Spyros (1996)
      Data on species richness of terrestrial isopods (Oniscidea) from central Aegean islands (Greece), together with previously published data sets from other taxa and areas, are critically analysed under the basic premises of ...

      Turnover of plants on small islets of the eastern Aegean Sea within two decades 

      Panitsa, M.; Tzanoudakis, D.; Sfenthourakis, Spyros (2008)
      Aim: To estimate species turnover of plants on 32 small islands within a 20-year period and to assess possible changes in community composition and properties, such as species richness and factors affecting it, nestedness, ...
