Data from: Disturbance alters beta-diversity but not the relative importance of community assembly mechanisms

Jonathan A. Myers, Jonathan M. Chase, Raelene M. Crandall & Iván Jiménez
1.Ecological disturbances are often hypothesized to alter community assembly processes that influence variation in community composition (β-diversity). Disturbance can cause convergence in community composition (low β-diversity) by increasing niche selection of disturbance-tolerant species. Alternatively, disturbance can cause divergence in community composition (high β-diversity) by increasing habitat filtering across environmental gradients. However, because disturbance may also influence β-diversity through random sampling effects owing to changes in the number of individuals in local communities (community size) or...
