报告简介

Species diversity patterns, such as the species-area curve, endemics-area relationship, occupancy frequency distribution, reflect the scale-dependence of species turnover. Measures of spatial turnover in the compositional similarity or difference between assemblages are commonly based on beta diversity which was originally derived for pairwise comparisons of individual assemblages. However, pairwise metrics are not entirely adequate for depicting compositional similarity across multiple assemblages. To exploit resources while mitigating conflicts, species often partition available habitats, forming co-distribution patterns of association or dissociation. Null models based on permutation or neutral/niche processes have been widely applied for detecting signals of bio-interactions from co-occurrence patterns. However, co-occurrence is scale dependent and should be used with caution for inferring biotic interactions or processes.
