2009 review

Patterns and causes of species richness: a general simulation model for macroecology

[Review of ]. ECOLOGY LETTERS, 12(9), 873–886.

author keywords: Biogeography; geographical range; macroecology; mechanistic simulation modelling; mid-domain effect; species richness
MeSH headings : Biodiversity; Ecology / methods; Models, Biological
TL;DR: Computer simulation models of the stochastic origin, spread, and extinction of species' geographical ranges in an environmentally heterogeneous, gridded domain and three of the 'control knobs' for a general simulation model that specify simple rules for dispersal, evolutionary origins and environmental gradients are described.

2009 journal article

Dispersal traits linked to range size through range location, not dispersal ability, in Western Australian angiosperms

GLOBAL ECOLOGY AND BIOGEOGRAPHY, 18(5), 596–606.

By: A. Gove n, M. Fitzpatrick*, J. Majer* & R. Dunn n

Contributors: A. Gove n, M. Fitzpatrick*, J. Majer* & R. Dunn n

author keywords: Angiosperm diversity; biogeography; dispersal; latitude; myrmecochory; Western Australia
TL;DR: Range size did not vary with dispersal mode (ant versus wind and vertebrate dispersal) or life-form, and instead varied primarily as a function of the biogeographical region in which a species was found, but range placement did vary among dispersal modes. (via Semantic Scholar)

2009 journal article

Temperature-mediated coexistence in temperate forest ant communities

INSECTES SOCIAUX, 56(2), 149–156.

Contributors: J. Lessard*, R. Dunn n & N. Sanders*

author keywords: Coexistence; Dominance; Temperature; Tradeoff; Formicidae; Coweeta LTER
TL;DR: Temperature plays numerous roles in promoting regional coexistence in this system, and species richness was positively related to site average annual temperature and within-site variation in ground temperature, suggesting that temperature also shapes the structure of ant communities and regulates diversity.

2009 journal article

Climatic drivers of hemispheric asymmetry in global patterns of ant species richness

ECOLOGY LETTERS, 12(4), 324–333.

author keywords: Biodiversity; climate change; Eocene; Formicidae; latitudinal gradient
MeSH headings : Animals; Ants / genetics; Ants / physiology; Biodiversity; Biological Evolution; Climate
TL;DR: Examining the latitudinal pattern of species richness across 1003 local ant assemblages finds latitudinal asymmetry, with southern hemisphere sites being more diverse than northern hemisphere sites, and the most parsimonious explanation is that greater climate change since the Eocene in the northern than in the southern hemisphere has led to more extinctions in the north with consequent effects on local ant species richness.
