Biodiversity conservation through the lens of metacommunity ecology.
Metacommunity combine local ecology (eg, screening environmental and biotic interactions) and regional (eg, distribution and heterogeneity) process to understand the patterns of species abundance, occurrence, composition and diversity across space and time scales. Thus, it has great potential to generalize and synthesize our understanding of many ecological problems. Here, we provide an overview of how the metacommunity perspective can provide useful insights for conservation biology, […]
