      Island biogeography is not a single-variable discipline: The small island effect debate 

      Triantis, Kostas A.; Sfenthourakis, Spyros (2012)
      In some island systems, an 'anomalous' feature of species richness on smaller islands, in comparison with larger ones, has been observed. This has been described as the small island effect (SIE). The precise meaning of the ...

      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 taxonomic diversity among terrestrial isopods 

      Sfenthourakis, Spyros; Taiti, S. (2015)
      The publication of the world catalog of terrestrial isopods some ten years ago by Schmalfuss has facilitated research on isopod diversity patterns at a global scale. Furthermore, even though we still lack a comprehensive ...

      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, ...
