The assembly of local communities is the result of the tension between local, often negative, and possibly deterministic interactions, and larger-scale environmental or dispersal constraints or stochastic events (Berlow, 1997; Levine, 2000; Lovette & Hochachka, 2006). Larger-scale environmental conditions and dispersal limitation filter a larger pool of potential colonists into one that includes species with the appropriate suite of traits for arrival and persistence (Keddy, National Center for… CONTINUE READING
