Global dung webs: High trophic generalism of dung beetles along the latitudinal diversity gradient

Abstract:

At the global scale, species diversity is known to strongly increase towards the equator for most taxa. According to theory, a higher resource specificity of consumers facilitates the coexistence of a larger number of species and has been suggested as an explanation for the latitudinal diversity gradient. However, only few studies support the predicted increase in specialization or even showed opposite results. Surprisingly, analyses for detritivores are still missing. Therefore, we performed...
