1. In fragmented landscapes where natural disturbance acts at the local level, community composition can be altered either by ‘species-by-species matching’, with communitywide character displacement, or by ‘constrained species sorting’, whereby disturbance favours species with distinct ecological traits. It is necessary to understand such species shifts when aiming to detect bottlenecks associated with changing disturbance dynamics at different spatial levels. Such an understanding also… CONTINUE READING
