Examining the diversity, stability and functioning of marine fish communities across a latitudinal gradient

Helen F. Yan, Jordan M. Casey, Nancy Knowlton, J. Emmett Duffy & Simon J. Brandl
Aim: As anthropogenic stressors on the biosphere intensify, understanding how communities respond to disturbances is critical. Biodiversity is often thought to promote the stability of communities over time and enhance ecosystem functioning. However, results have been inconsistent, and the multifaceted linkages among diversity, stability, and functioning under acute disturbances remain poorly understood. We experimentally tested the responses of marine fish communities to disturbance (i.e., acute habitat loss) across a diversity gradient spanning 35º degrees of...
