Data from: Patterns of species relatedness created by competitive exclusion depend on species niche differences: evidence from Iberian Atlantic grasslands

Iñaki Odriozola, Gonzalo Garcia-Baquero, Ana Etxeberria & Arantza Aldezabal
It is commonly assumed that closely related species share more similar niches than do distantly related species, thus limiting their ability to coexist and leading to patterns of phylogenetic over-dispersion. On the contrary, recent theoretical developments argue that competitive exclusion may lead to patterns of either over-dispersion, clustering or randomness, depending on the relative importance of niche differences and interspecific competitive ability differences. In this study, we utilized semi-natural grassland communities to test the hypothesis...
