Altitude-mediated soil properties, not geography or climatic distance, explain the distribution of a tropical endemic herb

Jacob Moutouama & Orou Gaoue
Understanding the ecological processes that govern species’ range margins is a fundamental question in ecology with practical implications in conservation biology. The centre-periphery hypothesis (CPH) predicts that organisms have higher abundance at the centre of their geographic range. However, most tests of the CPH often used raster data, assuming that climatic conditions are consistent across one square km. This assumption is not always justified, particularly for species that live in mountainous regions where climatic conditions...
