Direct and indirect effects of climate on richness drive the latitudinal diversity gradient in forest trees

Abstract:

Climate is widely recognized as an important determinant of the latitudinal diversity gradient. However, most existing studies make no distinction between direct and indirect effects of climate, which substantially hinders our understanding of how climate constrains biodiversity globally. Using data from 35 large forest plots, we test hypothesized relationships among climate, topography, forest structural attributes (stem abundance, tree size variation and stand basal area) and tree species r...
