Despite the potential for competition to generate equilibrium coexistence of infinitely tightly packed species along a trait axis, prior work has shown that the classical expectation of system-specific limits to the similarity of stably coexisting species is sound. A key reason is that known instances of continuous coexistence are fragile, requiring(More)
Despite its radical assumption of ecological equivalence between species, neutral biodiversity theory can often provide good fits to species abundance distributions observed in nature. Major criticisms of neutral theory have focused on interspecific differences, which are in conflict with ecological equivalence. However, neutrality in nature is also broken(More)
