Moving from pattern to process: Coexistence mechanisms under intermediate disturbance regimes

Shea, Katriona; Roxburgh, Stephen; Rauschert, Emily S.J.


Coexistence mechanisms that require environmental variation to operate contribute importantly to the maintenance of biodiversity. One famous hypothesis of diversity maintenance under disturbance is the intermediate disturbance hypothesis (IDH). The IDH proposes patterns of peaked diversity under intermediate disturbance regimes, based on a tension between competitively superior species and species which can rapidly colonize following disturbance. We review the literature, and describe recent...[Show more]
