Stochastic Species Turnover and Stable Coexistence in a Species-Rich, Fire-Prone Plant Community

Abstract

Understanding the mechanisms that maintain diversity is important for managing ecosystems for species persistence. Here we used a long-term data set to understand mechanisms of coexistence at the local and regional scales in the Cape Floristic Region, a global hotspot of plant diversity. We used a dataset comprising 81 monitoring sites, sampled in 1966 and… (More)
