Temporal Changes of Fish Diversity and Driver Factors in a National Nature Reserve, China

Simple Summary Freshwater-fish diversity declined rapidly due to multiple anthropogenic disturbances. The loss of fish diversity often manifested itself in taxonomic homogenization over time.

Spatio-temporal drivers of different oomycete beta diversity components in Brazilian rivers

Investigating beta diversity patterns and assessing the role of environmental, spatial, and temporal factors in driving oomycete beta diversity in a spatial extent of 33 km from two Brazilian rivers found that beta diversity was spatially and temporally high, and the replacement component was the main driver of the oomyCete metacommunity’s beta diversity.

Phytoplankton taxonomic and functional diversity in two shallow alluvial lakes with contrasting river connectivity

The mechanisms behind phytoplankton diversity patterns in natural ecosystems still remain elusive. In two shallow lakes with contrasting river connectivity, we first explored how diversity within

α- and β-Diversity Patterns of Macrophytes and Freshwater Fishes are Driven by Different Factors and Processes in Lakes of the Unexplored Southern Balkan Biodiversity Hotspot

Disentangling the main drivers of species richness and community composition is a central theme in ecology. Freshwater biodiversity patterns have been poorly explored; yet, it has been shown that

Multiple facets of macrophyte beta diversity are shaped by environmental factors, directional spatial processes, and connectivity across tropical floodplain lakes in the dry season

The relationship between environmental variables and beta diversity indicates that a selection of species with similar functional and phylogenetic characteristics co-occurs at a site, and dispersal limitation, which was due to the absence of directional exchange of species between lakes.

The drivers of multiple dimensions of stream macroinvertebrate beta diversity across a large montane landscape

Environmental filtering and spatial processes have been associated with variation in ecological communities and biodiversity; however, their relative importance on multiple dimensions of beta

Longitudinal patterns in distribution of native and non-native fish species in a regulated temperate Neotropical river

Abstract: Aim We evaluated the longitudinal patterns in distribution of native and non-native fish species in a hydrologically fragmented and environmentally variable lowland temperate river. Methods



Beta diversity of diatom species and ecological guilds: Response to environmental and spatial mechanisms along the stream watercourse

Environmental filtering seemed to play a major role in structuring metacommunities irrespective of site watercourse position, and turnover patterns in b-diversity varied in an opposite way.

Response of macrophyte communities to flow regulation in mountain streams

It is found that the overall environmental setting overwhelms the dam impact and that the influence of hydrological alteration became apparent when comparing upstream and downstream assemblages at the same dam.

Temporal variation in phytoplankton beta diversity patterns and metacommunity structures across subtropical reservoirs

The results suggest that eutrophication control is essential to prevent biotic homogenisation, at least in the study system, and highlight that metacommunity patterns detected in snapshot surveys should not be extrapolated temporally.

Environmental filters predict the trait composition of fish communities in reservoir cascades

These findings suggest that particular fish traits are selected for across reservoir cascades, and found evidence of an association between reservoir age and the domination of fish communities by small-sized species with parental care, external fecundation, and benthic habits.

Environmental heterogeneity and &bgr; diversity of stream macroinvertebrate communities at intermediate spatial scales

Abstract. Theory predicts that different components of species diversity should increase with environmental heterogeneity. Our main aim was to examine the relationship between &bgr;-diversity and

Metacommunity ecology meets biogeography: effects of geographical region, spatial dynamics and environmental filtering on community structure in aquatic organisms

It is concluded that aquatic communities across large scales are mostly determined by environmental and basin effects, which leads to high beta diversity and prevalence of Clementsian community types.

Assembly mechanisms determining high species turnover in aquatic communities over regional and continental scales

The results suggest that, although dispersal limitation might affect species composition in some regions, aquatic plant and cladoceran communities are not generally limited by dispersal at the regional scale (up to 300 km).
