Elevational species richness patterns emerge from multiple local mechanisms in Himalayan woody plants



Elevational species richness patterns emerge from multiple local mechanisms in Himalayan woody plants



Ecology 86(11): 3039-3047



We compared woody plant species distributions across nested spatial scales (local scale to entire Western Himalaya) and explored landscape scale patterns in detail to obtain inferences about the elevational gradient in species richness. Distribution data were compiled for 1100 species in the Western Himalaya, and primary data, comprising 123 species and 47000 individuals, were collected for a landscape.
