Guadeloupe Snails Metacommunity

Maxime Dubart, Jean-Pierre Pointier, Philippe Jarne & Patrice David
Metacommunity structure reflects the interplay of various processes, including niche filtering, extinction/colonization, and interspecific interactions. Spatial patterns of species distributions are often analyzed to infer these processes. However, such inferences rely on often unrealistic equilibrium assumptions, and remain ambiguous, as different processes can produce similar patterns. Temporal data may improve these inferences. For example, stochastic species turnover may occur in local communities, while, on the long run, temporal changes are kept within limits set by...
