Comprehensive Analysis of Metacommunity Structure
Diagrammatic representation of the hierarchical analytical approach based on elements of metacommunity structure and combinations of results that are consistent of each of six idealized structures (Leibold and Mikkelson 2002), three patterns of species loss for nested subsets, six quasi-structures, and structures of each compartment for Clementsian distributions. Boxes designate statistical results; ovals indicate direction of non-significant turnover (from Presley et al. submitted to Oikos).
