Global patterns in the phylogenetic structure of island mammal assemblages

Cardillo, Marcel; Gittleman, John L.; Purvis, A.

Description

Assemblage-level phylogenies carry the signature of ecological and evolutionary processes, which may provide useful information on modes of assemblage formation. We present a global-scale analysis of the emergent phylogenetic properties of mammal assemblages on islands, in which we compared the structure of 595 island assemblages with null models constructed under four alternative definitions of regional source pools. Although most assemblages had a structure indistinguishable from random...[Show more]
