Midpoint attractor models resolve the mid-elevation peak in Himalayan plant species richness

Martin Macek, Miroslav Dvorsky, Adam Klimes, Jan Wild, Jiri Dolezal & Martin Kopecký
The midpoint attractor models (MPA) of species richness integrate a unimodal environmental favourability gradient and neutral effects forced by geometric constraints and thus extend ecologically neutral mid-domain model. However, both alternative MPA algorithms assume that underlying environmental favourability peaks within the modeling domain. Here, we used elevational distribution data for 1054 plant species occurring in NW Himalaya to explore species richness gradients and MPA performance in species groups defined by biogeography, taxonomy and life form....
