Earlier on this year Jacquelyn Gill and Meghan Duffy came up with the #365papers hashtag as a way to encourage themselves to read more.

I thought this was a great idea. I, like many of you, find it hard to keep on top of my reading list which seems to exponentially increase for every paper that I read as I go through the references and find yet more interesting stuff to look at (at the moment I have 62 items in my Mendeley to-read folder). However, #365papers has actually helped me make headway on my to-read list for the first time ever and there is a lot to be said for doing a little reading every day.

So without wanting to seem to self indulgent here is the collection of articles I have read so far this year.

1. Fifteen forms of biodiversity trend in the Anthropocene

2. Climate change will increase savannas at the expense of forests and treeless vegetation in tropical and subtropical Americas

3. Indirect human impacts turn off reciprocal feedbacks and decrease ecosystem resilience

4. Liana competition with tropical trees varies seasonally but not with tree species identity
