β diversity among ant communities on fragmented habitat islands: the roles of species trait, phylogeny and abundance

Yuhao Zhao, Nathan Sanders, Juan Liu, Tinghao Jin, Haonan Zhou, Ruisen Lu, Ping Ding & Xingfeng Si
Habitat loss and fragmentation reduce biodiversity and alter species composition in local communities. β diversity describes the variation in species composition between or among communities in fragmented landscapes and has two components: species turnover and nestedness. In this study, we assessed β diversity of ant assemblages on 24 island fragments in the Thousand Island Lake, China. We constructed a species-level phylogenetic tree and measured five morphological traits of all ant species captured. We then assessed...
