Testing the Role of Historical Processes In Shaping Plant Communities Across the United States.

Both ecological and historical processes influence the structure of communities. However, linking patterns of community structure to the underlying process can be complicated by the fact that both ecological and historical processes can give rise to similar patterns. We combined phylogenetic comparative methods with NEON-collected plant community data to investigate how historical processes have shaped plant communities across the United States. Our findings highlight the importance of including a historical perspective in analyses of community structure.
