Mammal community structure correlates with arboreal heterogeneity in faunally and geographically diverse habitats: implications for community convergence
Aim To quantify how mammal community structure relates to heterogeneity of vegetation for palaeoecological reconstructions, and to test whether historical or environmental factors are more important in structuring communities. Location Sixty-three natural protected areas in Asia, Africa and South and Central America. Methods We defined faunal communities by allocating species to ecological guilds and calculating proportional representation within each guild. Vegetation heterogeneity for each...[Show more]
