Correlations between phylogenetic and functional diversity: mathematical artefacts or true ecological and evolutionary processes?

Abstract:

Questions: Is phylogenetic diversity (PD) an accurate surrogate for functional diversity (FD)? How are FD:PD correlations affected by the diversity index used, covarying factors and/or the strength of the phylogenetic signal in ecological traits? Location: Field study, coastal marsh plain Mekhada, Algeria, complemented by simulated data. Methods: FD and PD indices might correlate simply because variation in species richness and evenness (referred to as co-factors) influences both FD and PD va...
