Organisms aggregate in ecological communities. It has been widely debated whether these associations are explained by deterministic or, in contrast, random processes. The answer may vary, depending on the level of an organisational scale (α, β and γ) and the facet of diversity considered: taxonomic (TD), functional (FD) and phylogenetic (PD). Diversity at the level of a sampling unit (i.e. host individual) is the α diversity; β diversity represents the extent of dissimilarity in diversity among… Expand
Functional and phylogenetic uniqueness of helminth and flea assemblages of two South African rodents.
TLDR
The resilience of parasite assemblages in terms of the effect on hosts depends not only on their transmission strategy but also on traits of host species and environmental factors. Expand
Spatial and temporal variation of compositional, functional, and phylogenetic diversity in ectoparasite infracommunities harboured by small mammals
TLDR
It is concluded that the assembly patterns in ectoparasite infracommunities mirror those characteristics of component and compound communities. Expand

Spatial Structure of Helminth Communities in the Golden Grey Mullet, Liza aurata (Actinopterygii: Mugilidae), from the Western Mediterranean
TLDR
The spatial structure of the helminth infracommunities of Liza aurata seems to be determined by a combination of differences in local environmental conditions and the transmission ability of each species at small local and time scales. Expand
‘Equivalent numbers’ for species, phylogenetic or functional diversity in a nested hierarchy of multiple scales
TLDR
The new hierarchical approaches of biodiversity revealed very low differences among sites within regions and among regions in terms of taxonomy and functional traits (size and diet), despite moderate, significant species turnover among geological regions. Expand
Co-occurrence and phylogenetic distance in communities of mammalian ectoparasites: limiting similarity versus environmental filtering
TLDR
It is suggested that competition between closely related, and therefore presumably ecologically similar, species is not important in shaping community assembly, and if phylogenetic relationships determine trait similarity among fl ea species, then a process akin to environmental fi ltering, or host fiLtering, could favour the co-occurrence of related species on the same host.

Assembly rules of ectoparasite communities across scales: combining patterns of abiotic factors, host composition, geographic space, phylogeny and traits
TLDR
It is found that compound communities of Palearctic small mammals are, to a great extent, assembled via environmental fi lters that represent interplay between abiotic environment and host composition, and the relative importance of these two components of environmentalfi ltering diff ered between spatial scales.

Parasite species coexistence and limiting similarity: a multiscale look at phylogenetic, functional and reproductive distances
TLDR
This study reveals a strong conservatism of ecological characters for the nine Dactylogyrus parasite species, in particular regarding the attributes of their copulatory organs, and supports the niche filtering hypothesis, preventing the co-occurrence of species too dissimilar from one another.

Spatial heterogeneity in parasite infections at different spatial scales in an intertidal bivalve
TLDR
The recruitment of trematodes in second intermediate hosts seems to be largely controlled by pre-settlement processes both among and within host populations, and there was no indication for inter-specific interactions. Expand
Nested assemblages resulting from host size variation: the case of endoparasite communities in fish hosts.
TLDR
Nested parasite communities were characterised by higher prevalence and intensities of infection than anti-nested communities; the two types of non-random communities did not differ with respect to parasite species richness, however. Expand
Testing for deterministic succession in metazoan parasite communities of marine fish.
TLDR
Seriated successional pattern was evident for parasite communities of long-lived marine fish, indicating that parasite communities follow sequential changes over time, like many free-living communities. Expand
Hierarchical partitioning of evolutionary and ecological patterns in the organization of phylogenetically-structured species assemblages: application to rockfish (genus: Sebastes) in the Southern California Bight.
TLDR
A generalized framework for two widely used phylogenetic diversity indices: Raos quadratic entropy (QE) and Faiths PD is introduced and it is demonstrated how this framework can be used to partition diversity simultaneously across evolutionary periods and spatial and time units. Expand
