Reconceptualizing beta diversity: a hypervolume geometric approach

Beta diversity---the variation among community compositions in a region---is a fundamental indicator of biodiversity. Despite a diverse set of measures to quantify beta diversity, most measures have posited that beta diversity is maximized when each …

Rapid monitoring for ecological persistence

Effective conservation of ecological communities requires accurate and up-to-date information about whether species are persisting or declining to extinction. The persistence of ecological communities is largely supported by its structured …
