Coherent space of Metacommunity Structure
Twelve coherent metacommunity structures defined by range turnover and boundary clumping. Quasi-structures are shaded; nested structures distinguished by patterns of species loss are stippled. Significant positive results, +; significant negative results, -; non-significant clumping, NS, non-significant turnover but with more replacements than the average number in randomly generated metacommunities, NS(>); non-significant turnover but with fewer replacements than the average number in randomly generated metacommunities, NS(<).
