1. Camera trap technology has galvanized the study of predator-prey ecology in wild animal communities by expanding the scale and diversity of predator-prey interactions that can be analyzed. While observational data from systematic camera arrays have informed inferences on the spatiotemporal outcomes of predator-prey interactions, the capacity for observational studies to identify mechanistic drivers of species interactions is limited. 2. Experimental study designs that utilize camera traps uniquely allow for testing hypothesized mechanisms that drive...

From alpha to beta functional and phylogenetic redundancy

Carlo Ricotta, Fabien Laroche, Laszlo Szeidl & Sandrine Pavoine
1. Plot-level redundancy or alpha redundancy is usually defined as the fraction of species diversity not expressed by functional or phylogenetic diversity. Redundancy is zero when all species in one plot are maximally dissimilar from each other. By contrast, redundancy tends to its maximum if the functional or phylogenetic differences between species tend to be minimal. 2. To explore the ecological drivers of community assembly, ecologists also use dissimilarity measures between pairs of plots (a...
