Metacommunity organisation, spatial extent and dispersal in aquatic systems: patterns, processes and prospects
Summary Metacommunity ecology addresses the situation where sets of local communities are connected by the dispersal of a number of potentially interacting species. Aquatic systems (e.g. lenticExpand

Spatial autocorrelation and red herrings in geographical ecology
Aim Spatial autocorrelation in ecological data can inflate Type I errors in statistical analyses. There has also been a recent claim that spatial autocorrelation generates 'red herrings', such thatExpand

Floods increase similarity among aquatic habitats in river-floodplain systems
During low water levels, habitats in river-floodplain systems are isolated from each other and from the main river. Oppositely, floods tend to connect water bodies with distinct hydrologicalExpand

Mantel test in population genetics
The comparison of genetic divergence or genetic distances, estimated by pairwise FST and related statistics, with geographical distances by Mantel test is one of the most popular approaches toExpand

Partitioning and mapping uncertainties in ensembles of forecasts of species turnover under climate change
Forecasts of species range shifts under climate change are fraught with uncertainties and ensemble forecasting may provide a framework to deal with such uncertainties. Here, a novel approach toExpand

Dispersal Ability Determines the Role of Environmental, Spatial and Temporal Drivers of Metacommunity Structure
Recently, community ecologists are focusing on the relative importance of local environmental factors and proxies to dispersal limitation to explain spatial variation in community structure. AlbeitExpand

Reconceptualising the beta diversity‐environmental heterogeneity relationship in running water systems
SUMMARY 1. Beta diversity modelling has received increased interest recently. There are multiple definitions of beta diversity, but here, we focus on variability in species composition among samplingExpand
