The diverse nature of island isolation and its effect on land-bridge insular faunas

Yuval Itescu, Johannes Foufopoulos, Panayiotis Pafilis & Shai Meiri
Aim Isolation is a key factor in island biology. It is usually defined as the distance to the geographically nearest mainland, but multiple alternatives exist. We explored how testing different isolation indices affects the inference of isolation effects on faunal characteristics. We focused on land-bridge islands and compared the relationships of multiple spatial and temporal (i.e., through time) isolation indices with community-, population-, and individual-level characteristics (species richness, population density, and body size, respectively).
