1. Dispersal ability can influence the importance of dispersal relative to other processes organizing metacommunities, such as species sorting among habitats along environmental gradients. 2. We compare plants with different dispersal modes and habitat affinities, evaluating the roles of environmental and spatial controls on plant community composition in 128 wetlands within 10 km of old-growthmaple–beech forest in southern Québec, Canada. 3. We address two hypotheses. First, we ask whether… CONTINUE READING
