Geographical Ecology at the Community Level: Perspectives on the Diversity of New World Bats

  title={Geographical Ecology at the Community Level: Perspectives on the Diversity of New World Bats},
  author={Richard D. Stevens},
The ubiquity of the la t i tudi~~al gradient of species richness is well documented at coarse scales of resolution, but the extent to which the pattern is recapitulated at the level of local co~nmunities for any aspect of biodiversity (i.e., richness, evenness, or diversity) is unclear. We examined how attributes of New World bat diversity vary with each other and with latitude at two scales of resolution: local. communities and regional species pools. We calculated 14 indices of diversity… CONTINUE READING
