Hierarchical analysis of Clementsian structures

Four metacommunities that exhibit Clementsian structure but with smaller extents with each metacommuntiy that exhibit A) nested structures, B) Clementsian structures, C) Gleasonian structures, and D) a combination of structures. Gray cells represent species presences. Results of analysis of elements of metacommunity structure for each metacommunity and the respective sub-metacommunity are consistent the respective patterns.
