Empirical tests of metacommunity theory using an isolation gradient
All metacommunity theories incorporate dispersal as a key process influencing community composition. If communities are examined across a habitat-patch isolation gradient, different metacommunity theories predict contrasting patterns of community divergence and responses of rare species. We used bird and reptile data collected in three years from 168 habitat patches in a fragmented agricultural landscape, and bird data gathered from 63 remnants embedded in a pine plantation over two years to...[Show more]
