Functional traits and metacommunity theory reveal that habitat filtering and competition maintain bird diversity in a human shared landscape

Harold N. Eyster, Diane Srivastava, Maayan Kreitzman & Kai Chan
Human shared landscapes cover much of Earth, yet their conservation value is contested. This controversy may persist because previous studies have examined species diversity, rather than the processes through which such diversity is maintained. For example, a site exhibiting high diversity may not actually bolster populations if the diversity is only maintained through net immigration. Recent research has begun to isolate the processes that maintain metacommunities and develop functional trait methods to identify these processes....
