Phylogenetic community structure metrics and null models: a review with new methods and software

Abstract:

Competitive exclusion and habitat filtering influence community assembly, but ecologists and evolutionary biologists have not reached consensus on how to quantify patterns that would reveal the action of these processes. Currently, at least 22 α-diversity and 10 β-diversity metrics of community phylogenetic structure can be combined with nine null models (eight for β-diversity metrics), providing 278 potentially distinct approaches to test for phylogenetic clustering and overdispersion.
