Navigating the multiple meanings of β diversity: a roadmap for the practicing ecologist.
A recent increase in studies of β diversity has yielded a confusing array of concepts, measures and methods. Here, we provide a roadmap of the most widely used and ecologically relevant approachesExpand

Drought sensitivity shapes species distribution patterns in tropical forests
Although patterns of tree species distributions along environmental gradients have been amply documented in tropical forests, mechanisms causing these patterns are seldom known. Efforts to evaluateExpand

Disentangling the Drivers of β Diversity Along Latitudinal and Elevational Gradients
Increases in species turnover of woody plants at low latitudes and elevations are explained by the size of species pools alone. Understanding spatial variation in biodiversity along environmentalExpand

Asymmetric Density Dependence Shapes Species Abundances in a Tropical Tree Community
Too Close to Home? Why are some species common while others are exceedingly rare? Attempts to answer this question have met limited success, particularly in hyperdiverse communities, such as tropicalExpand

Testing predictions of the Janzen–Connell hypothesis: a meta-analysis of experimental evidence for distance- and density-dependent seed and seedling survival
The Janzen–Connell hypothesis proposes that specialist natural enemies, such as herbivores and pathogens, maintain diversity in plant communities by reducing survival rates of conspecific seeds andExpand

Developmental changes in habitat associations of tropical trees
Summary 1 Recent studies have documented local-scale associations between tree species and topographic and edaphic habitat types in forests worldwide. To determine whether such associationsExpand

Abiotic and biotic drivers of seedling survival in a hurricane-impacted tropical forest.
Summary 1. Many forests experience periodic, large-scale disturbances, such as hurricanes and cyclones, which open the forest canopy, causing dramatic changes in understorey light conditions andExpand

PAPER Stochastic and deterministic drivers of spatial and temporal turnover in breeding bird communities
Aim A long-standing challenge in ecology is to identify the suite of factors that lead to turnover in species composition in both space and time.These factors might be stochastic (e.g. sampling andExpand
