The Contrasting Roles and Importance of Dispersal, Horizontal Gene Transfer and Ecological Drift in Bacterial Community Assembly

Adriana Valenzuela-Cuevas
Communities are defined as the ensemble of populations that interact with each other and with the environment in a specific time and location. Community ecology studies how communities assemble, what are the patterns of diversity, abundance, and composition of species, and the processes driving these patterns.

Dispersal, the...
