Tests of community assembly across spatial scales in Neotropical birds

Abstract:

Species diversity varies dramatically across the surface of the Earth. A key step in the accumulation of species diversity is the ability of species to coexist in biological communities. Thus, identifying the mechanisms underlying community assembly is a major challenge for ecologists seeking to explain patterns in species diversity and composition. Recently some consensus has been reached on the set of processes that influence community assembly: speciation, demographic stochasticity, niche-...
