Hot paper!!! Glaciation as an historical filter of below-ground biodiversity

Posted on 16 August 2014 by Pete

Aim The latitudinal gradient in species richness is one of the most studied biodiversity patterns. Here we explore a north–south gradient in earthworm diversity, and evaluate the importance of current and historical filters in shaping the distribution of present-day below-ground species richness. Methods Using high resolution data on earthworm distributions across France, we document the
