The contribution of environmental and dispersal filters on beta diversity patterns in Amazonian tree communities

Juan Ernesto Guevara Andino, Nigel C.A. Pitman, Hans Ter Steege, Manuel Peralvo, Carlos CerĂ³n & Paul V.A. Fine
Environmental filters (e.g. climate, geomorphology and soils) and dispersal filters are key determinants of species distributions of Amazonian tree communities. However, a comprehensive analysis of the role of environmental and dispersal filters is needed to understand the ecological and evolutionary processes that drive phylogenetic and taxonomic turnover of Amazonian tree communities. We compare measures of taxonomic and phylogenetic beta diversity in 40 one-hectare plots to test the relative importance of climate, soils, geology, geomorphology, pure...
