Species turnover on elevational gradients in small rodents

Species turnover on elevational gradients in small rodents Aim  The elevational gradients of species richness have been well documented; however, studies about species turnover (i.e. beta diversity) in such gradients are limited. We aimed to evaluate the relationship between species turnover and elevation in rodents, and particularly to assess two assumptions at the local scale: (1) species turnover is higher at an intermediate elevation; and (2) turnover decreases at higher elevations as a result of species with larger elevational ranges; and a third assumption at a regional scale; (3) beta diversity changes positively with the size of the elevational range. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Global Ecology and Biogeography Wiley
