    • Effects of ecological scaling on biodiversity patterns 

      Antão, Laura H. (University of St Andrews, 2018-06-27) - Thesis
      Biodiversity is determined by a myriad of complex processes acting at different scales. Given the current rates of biodiversity loss and change, it is of paramount importance that we improve our understanding of the ...
    • Local and regional rarity in a diverse tropical fish assemblage 

      Hercos, A; Sobansky, M; Queiroz, H; Magurran, Anne (2013-01) - Journal article
      Because most species in an ecological assemblage are rare, much of the species richness we value is due to taxa with few individuals or a restricted distribution. It has been apparent since the time of ecological pioneers ...
    • Species richness in marine phytoplankton communities is not correlated to ecosystem productivity 

      Cermeño, Pedro; Rodríguez-Ramos, Tamara; Dornelas, Maria; Figueiras, FG; Marañón, E; Teixeira, Isabel G.; Vallina, Sergio M. (2013-08-15) - Journal article
    • Using species proportions to quantify turnover in biodiversity 

      Yuan, Yuan; Buckland, Stephen Terrence; Harrison, Phil; Foss, Sergey; Johnston, Alison (2016-06) - Journal article
      Quantifying species turnover is an important aspect of biodiversity monitoring. Turnover measures are usually based on species presence/absence data, reflecting the rate at which species are replaced. However, measures ...
