Differential speciation rates, colonization time, and niche conservatism affect community assembly across adjacent biogeographical regions

Ronildo Benício, Diogo Provete, Mariana Lyra, Jani Heino, Célio Haddad, Denise De C. Rossa-Feres & Fernando Da Silva
Aim: To test the importance of evolutionary and biogeographic processes in shaping the assembly of local frog communities in two adjacent regions (hereafter, coastal and inland regions) with different historical signatures. We asked two main questions: i) why does the coastal region harbor more frog species than the inland region? and ii) how do these processes affect the relationship between the spatial variation of taxonomic, phylogenetic, and functional diversities within and across these regions? Location:...

Climate change reshapes the eco-evolutionary dynamics of a Neotropical seed dispersal system

Lilian Sales, W. Daniel Kissling, Mauro Galetti, Babak Naimi & Mathias Pires
Aim: Global changes will redistribute biodiversity, reshaping ecological interactions and ecosystem processes. The distribution decoupling of plants and their mutualistic seed dispersers, for instance, may have overlooked eco-evolutionary effects. How animal-dispersed plants will respond to changes in the distribution of their seed dispersers is, however, an open question. Here, we forecast the consequences of climate change and frugivory interactions for the spatial distribution and seed size evolution of a Neotropical palm. Location: Atlantic forests of...
