Phylogenetic beta diversity in bacterial assemblages across ecosystems: deterministic versus stochastic processes
Increasing evidence has emerged for non-random spatial distributions of microbes, but knowledge of the processes that cause variation in microbial assemblage among ecosystems is lacking. ForExpand

Phylogenetic clustering increases with elevation for microbes.
Although phylogenetic approaches are useful for providing insights into the processes underlying biodiversity patterns, the studies of microbial phylogenetic relatedness are rare, especially forExpand

Heterogeneity of archaeal and bacterial ammonia-oxidizing communities in Lake Taihu, China.
Ammonia-oxidizing archaea (AOA) and bacteria (AOB) communities within the surface sediments of Lake Taihu, a large eutrophic freshwater lake in China, were investigated using molecular approachesExpand

Environmental filtering decreases with fish development for the assembly of gut microbiota.
Gut microbiota typically occupy habitats with definable limits/borders that are comparable to oceanic islands. The gut therefore can be regarded as an 'island' for the assembly of microbialExpand

Profiling bacterial diversity in a limestone cave of the western Loess Plateau of China
Bacteria and archaea sustain subsurface cave ecosystems by dominating primary production and fueling biogeochemical cyclings, despite the permanent darkness and shortage of nutrients. However, theExpand

pH Influences the Importance of Niche-Related and Neutral Processes in Lacustrine Bacterioplankton Assembly
ABSTRACT pH is an important factor that shapes the structure of bacterial communities. However, we have very limited information about the patterns and processes by which overall bacterioplanktonExpand

A meta‐analysis of nestedness and turnover components of beta diversity across organisms and ecosystems
Aim The number of studies investigating the nestedness and turnover components of beta diversity has increased substantially, but our general understanding of the drivers of turnover and nestednessExpand

Distinct soil bacterial communities along a small-scale elevational gradient in alpine tundra
The elevational diversity pattern for microorganisms has received great attention recently but is still understudied, and phylogenetic relatedness is rarely studied for microbial elevationalExpand

High beta diversity of bacteria in the shallow terrestrial subsurface.
While there have been a vast number of studies on bacterial alpha diversity in the shallow terrestrial subsurface, beta diversity - how the bacterial community composition changes with spatialExpand

Bacterial responses to environmental change on the Tibetan Plateau over the past half century.
Climate change and anthropogenic factors can alter biodiversity and can lead to changes in community structure and function. Despite the potential impacts, no long-term records of climatic influencesExpand
