Temporal and sociocultural effects of human colonisation on native biodiversity: Filtering and rates of adaptation

Christophe Amiot, Christophe Amiot, Weihong Ji, Erle Ellis & Michael Anderson
Modern human societies have negatively impacted native species richness and their adaptive capacity on every continent, in clearly contrasting ways. We propose a general model to explain how the sequence, duration, and type of colonising society alter native species richness patterns through changes in evolutionary pressures. These changes cause different ‘filtering effects’ on native species, while simultaneously altering the capacity of surviving species to adapt to further anthropogenic pressures. This framework may better explain the...
