Unveiling the processes that determine the spatial distribution of species is a central goal for community ecology and biogeography. Hubbell (1997, 2001) suggested that the dispersal history of biological assemblages, rather than habitat specialization, provides the main explanation for spatial variation. Neutral theory predicts that among-site floristic similarity (beta-diversity or commonality) should decrease logarithmically with increasing geographical distance because Laboratoire Evolution… CONTINUE READING
