Our knowledge of community assembly dynamics under multiple stressors is limited because of opposite niche-based processes, i.e., limiting similarity and habitat filtering could simultaneously occur, masking the overall patterns. Alpine biomes provide the ideal systems to explore the influences of co-occurrence processes as these communities usually face multiple stresses such as resources limitation and habitat constraints. However, the assembly processes of mammals in alpine areas have hardly been exclusively studied. Here, we aimed to address...
