Geographic homogenization but little net change in the local richness of Canadian butterflies

Jayme Lewthwaite & Arne Mooers
Aim: Recent studies have found that local-scale plots measured through time exhibit marked variation in the change in species richness. However, the overall effect often reveals no net change. Most studies thus far have been agnostic about the identities of the species lost/gained, as well as the processes that may lead to these changes. Generalist traits may be crucial in allowing species to colonize new plots or remain resilient in situ, whereas environmental filtering may...
