Assembly rules are rare in SE Australian bird communities, but sometimes apply in fragmented agricultural landscapes
Assembly rules have been difficult to observe partly because species interactions vary with resource availability, the amount of disturbance, and species richness. Using bird survey data from two years in five regions of SE Australia (463 sites), we tested six predictions from assembly rules theory. We developed generalised linear models for all pair-wise species comparisons within a region, after first taking vegetation differences among sites into account. We found: 1) that disturbed and...[Show more]
