  • The decline of biodiversity with latitude has received great attention, but both the concise pattern and the causes of the gradient are under strong debate. [...] Key Method To test for significant variation in the gradient between organisms, habitats, or regions, a meta-analysis was conducted on nearly 600 latitudinal gradients assembled from the literature.Expand Abstract
