Although species diversity is often correlated with ecosystem size in a con- sistent manner, mechanistic explanations of when and why diversity is related to size remain elusive. Rarely considered in understanding size-diversity relationships is the history of community assembly. I conducted a laboratory microcosm experiment with freshwater protists and rotifers to test for interactive effects of assembly history and ecosystem size on species diversity. The experiment used a two-way factorial… CONTINUE READING
