Data from: Environmental optimality, not heterogeneity, drives regional and local species richness in lichen epiphytes

Jessica R. Coyle & Allen H. Hurlbert
Aim: We evaluate the scale dependence of species richness–environment relationships with a continent-wide analysis of lichen epiphyte communities. Specifically, our goals are to assess: (1) the dependence of local richness on regional processes, (2) whether species richness is primarily influenced by heterogeneity in environmental conditions or the central tendency of those conditions, and (3) whether the relative influence of these different aspects of the environment differs between local communities and regional species pools. Location: Forests...
