Partitioning the turnover and nestedness components of beta diversity
Aim  Beta diversity (variation of the species composition of assemblages) may reflect two different phenomena, spatial species turnover and nestedness of assemblages, which result from two antitheticExpand
Betapart an R package for the study of beta diversity
Summary 1. Beta diversity, that is, the variation in species composition among sites, can be the result of species replacement between sites (turnover) and species loss from site to siteExpand
The relationship between species replacement, dissimilarity derived from nestedness, and nestedness
Aim Beta diversity can be partitioned into two components: dissimilarity due to species replacement and dissimilarity due to nestedness (Baselga, 2010, Global Ecology and Biogeography, 19, 134–143).Expand
Separating the two components of abundance‐based dissimilarity: balanced changes in abundance vs. abundance gradients
Summary Dissimilarity measures can be formulated using matching components that can be defined as the intersection in terms of species composition of both sets (a) and the relative complementsExpand
Historical bias in biodiversity inventories affects the observed environmental niche of the species
It is well known that biodiversity data from historical inventories presents important geographic and taxonomic biases. Due to this, current knowledge on the distribution of most species could beExpand
A multiple-site similarity measure independent of richness
The Diserud–Ødegaard multiple-site similarity index makes use of data on species shared by two or more sites, but produces equal similarity values in two different circumstances: species loss andExpand
Determinants of species richness, endemism and turnover in European longhorn beetles
This study assessed the diversity patterns of a large family of beetles, Cerambycidae, in Europe and tested the following hypotheses: 1) richness gradients of this hyperdiverse taxon are driven byExpand
Ice age climate, evolutionary constraints and diversity patterns of European dung beetles.
Current climate and Pleistocene climatic changes are both known to be associated with geographical patterns of diversity. We assess their associations with the European Scarabaeinae dung beetles, aExpand
Individualistic vs community modelling of species distributions under climate change.
Studies investigating the consequences of future climate changes on species distributions usually start with the assumption that species respond to climate changes in an individualistic fashion. ThisExpand
Multiplicative partition of true diversity yields independent alpha and beta components; additive partition does not.
The need for a measure of beta diversity independent of alpha diversity was stressed long time ago (Wilson and Shmida 1984), in order to ensure a ‘‘useful application of a measure [of beta diversity]Expand
