Beta diversity on mountainsides

Community variation (i.e. beta diversity) along geographical gradients is of substantial interest in ecology and biodiversity reserves in the face of global changes. However, the generality in beta diversity patterns and underlying processes remains less studied across trophic levels and geographical regions. We documented beta diversity patterns [...] Read more

Elevational patterns of biodiversity

We just got a paper on-line, which is about the elevational patterns of microbial biodiversity (Wang et al, In press). In this paper, we sampled six streams for bacteria and diatoms along mountainsides in three regions: one stream in (1) the Balggesvarri Mountain in Norway in 2012, one stream in (2) the Pyrenees Mountain in Spain in 2012, and four [...] Read more
