Aim  To relate variation in the migration capacity and colonization ability of island communities to island geography and species island occupancy. 
Dispersal modality determines the relative partitioning of beta diversity in spider assemblages on subtropical land‐bridge islands
To identify geographical drivers determining the relative partitioning of species replacement and richness difference or nestedness‐resultant components of beta diversity in spider groups with
Rise and fall of island butterfly diversity: Understanding genetic differentiation and extinction in a highly diverse archipelago
TLDR
Fine‐scale diversity patterns of the entire butterfly fauna occurring on the Tuscan Archipelago are described to identify the factors determining the origin and maintenance of genetic diversity, and population vulnerability to environmental changes.
Geography, climate, ecology: What is more important in determining bee diversity in the Aegean Archipelago?
Understanding which factors drive α‐ and β‐diversity is fundamental to ecological and biogeographical research. Especially in archipelagos, diversity patterns are interesting due to the numerous
Assessing small island prioritisation using species rarity: the tenebrionid beetles of Italy
TLDR
This work investigated conservation priorities of Italian small islands on the basis of tenebrionid species (Coleoptera Tenebrions) whichare insects typically as beetles typically as caterpillars.
Area threshold and trait–environment associations of butterfly assemblages in the Zhoushan Archipelago, China
An area threshold is usually considered as the point of abrupt change in the species–area relationship (SAR). Despite their widespread existence, few studies have considered the influence of data
Historical and contemporary factors generate unique butterfly communities on islands
TLDR
It is found that community characteristics and genetic structure were influenced by a combination of contemporary and historical factors, and among the former, connection during the Pleistocene had an important impact, highlighting the importance of assessing the phylogeographic value of populations for conservation.
Genetic structure of pike (Esox lucius) reveals a complex and previously unrecognized colonization history of Ireland
TLDR
Population genetic substructure in Irish pike is high and comparable to the levels observed elsewhere in Europe, and a comparison of evolutionary scenarios upholds the possibility that pike may have colonized Ireland in two ‘waves’.
Biogeographic patterns on Kimberley islands, Western Australia
TLDR
The results of the survey support the hypothesis that these islands are microcosms of the adjacent Northern Kimberley mainland with 74% of mammal, 59% of reptile, 70% of frog, 69% of bird and 49% of plant species of the Northern Kimberleys bioregion now known on the islands sampled.
Biogeography of western Mediterranean butterflies: combining turnover and nestedness components of faunal dissimilarity
Unpartitioned dissimilarity indices such as the Sørensen index (βsor) tend to categorize areas according to species number. The use of turnover indices, such as the Simpson index (βsimp), may lead to

TLDR
Whether the community compositions of birds, lizards and small mammals were nested in a fragmented landscape in the Thousand Island Lake, China was examined and the mechanisms influencing nestedness differed among these taxonomic groups.

TLDR

Butterflies of European islands: the implications of the geography and ecology of rarity and endemicity for conservation
Depending on their faunal content islands can function as important ‘vehicles’ for conservation. In this study, we examine data on 440 butterfly species over 564 European islands in 10 island groups.
Modelling the effect of habitat fragmentation on range expansion in a butterfly
TLDR
Habitat fragmentation constrained expansion, but in a predictable way, suggesting that it will prove feasible both to understand variation in expansion rates and to develop conservation programmes to increase rates of range expansion in such species.
