We’ve just had another paper accepted at PLOS ONE. This is the work that I presented at the SEFS conference in Geneva, as mentioned here, where we looked at regional patterns in stream invertebrate assemblages in central Germany. I upscaled the Elements of Metacommunity Structure (EMS) approach to examine regional patterns in biodiversity.
