Many species live in advective environments, such as rivers or streams. The community composition in such environments is shaped by the interplay between biotic interactions and hydrologic constraints. Lutscher et al. (Theor. Popul. Biol. 71:267-277, 2007) demonstrated by simulation that advective flow can shift competitive outcome from one species… CONTINUE READING
