The nearly universal positive relationship between the distribution and abundance of species has been explained by several hypotheses but hitherto no consensus has been reached. Here, we used monitoring data of 105 phytophagous true bug species (Heteroptera) from 150 grassland sites over six years, to test how (1) range-position, (2) resource-use, (3) resource-availability, (4) density-dependent habitat selection, (5) metapopulation dynamics and (6) habitat-dispersal affect the distribution-abun...

Abstract. The freshwater flatworm Crenobia alpina (Platyhelminthes, Tricladida, Planariidae) lives almost exclusively in cold springs and crenal streams and possesses only limited dispersal ability. In this study fragments of the COI and 18S rRNA genes were used to estimate genetic divergences among 37 C. alpina populations from the European Alps. Phylogenetic analyses revealed five geographically and genetically distinct groups and at least 10 distinct lineages of C. alpina across the European ...

Abstract Plant diversity and land-use intensity have been shown to affect invertebrate herbivory. Several hypotheses predict positive (e.g. associational susceptibility) or negative (e.g. associational resistance) relationships of herbivory with plant species richness. Also, the strength and direction of reported relationships vary greatly between studies leading to the conclusion that relationships either depend on the specific system studied or that other unconsidered factors are more importan...

'Summary' I. 'Entire clades decline while others persist; we suggest this might reflect an eco-evolutionary feedback between habitat similarity among clade members, their co-occurrence, and their reduced vulnerability to environmental change' II. 'Definitions, and methods used to infer tentative evidence from published results' III. 'The interface between variation in habitat use within clades and the assembly of local communities: clade members occupying similar habitats tend to locally co-occu...
