Understanding the various processes contributing to community assembly is among the central aims of ecology. As a means of exploring this topic we quantifi ed the relative infl uences of habitat fi ltering and competition in establishing patterns of community functional trait diversity across a landscape of lakes. Habitat fi ltering has been invoked in shaping community structure when co-occurring taxa are more similar in their traits than expected by chance (under-dispersion), and competition… CONTINUE READING
