Generalism drives abundance: a computational causal discovery approach

A ubiquitous pattern in ecological systems is that more abundant species are also more generalist, yet there is no consensus whether generalism drives abundance (a selection process) or abundance drives generalism (a drift process). As it is …

Untangling the complexity of priority effects in multi-species communities

Priority effects arise when the history of species arrival influences local species interactions, thereby affecting the composition of ecological communities. The outcome of some priority effects may be more difficult to predict than others, but this …
