Assessment of the stream invertebrate β-diversity along an elevation gradient using a bidimensional null model analysis

Pablo Timoner, Pierre Marle, Emmanuel Castella & Anthony Lehmann
Aim: β-Diversity, commonly defined as the compositional variation among localities that links local diversity (α‐diversity) and regional diversity (γ‐diversity), can arise from two different ecological phenomena, namely the spatial species turnover (i.e. species replacement) and the nestedness of assemblages (i.e. species loss). However, any assessment that does not account for stochasticity in community assembly could be biased and misinform conservation management. In this study, we aimed to provide a better understanding of the overall ecological...
