12 Background: Predator assemblages can differ substantially in their topdown effects on 13 community composition and ecosystem function, but few studies have sought to explain 14 this variation in terms of the phylogenetic distance between predators. The effect of a local 15 predator assemblage will depend on three things – which predators tend to co-occur, how 16 similar their prey preferences are, and how they interact with each other and the whole 17 community. Phylogenetic distance between… CONTINUE READING
