1. The issue of how to estimate species abundance from presence/absence maps has attracted much attention. Several methods have been developed to address this problem. However, those methods either overlook the structure of spatial autocorrelation of species distribution, thus leading to underestimation, or they demand extra information besides pre...
Article
Full-text available
There is mounting evidence that many taxa respond in non-linear ways to perturbation (i.e. deviations from a natural trajectory brought on by an external agent), and many statistical, physical and ecological methods have been developed to detect the critical points or thresholds of perturbation. The majority of these methods define thresholds as th...

• The dissimilarity and hierarchy of trait values that characterize niche and fitness differences, respectively, have been increasingly applied to infer mechanisms driving community assembly and to explain species co-occurrence patterns. Here, we predict that limiting similarity should result in the spatial segregation of functionally similar speci...
Article
Habitat loss greatly threatens biodiversity worldwide. However, how different facets of biodiversity (taxonomic, phylogenetic and functional diversity) decline with habitat loss is currently poorly understood. Habitat loss-biodiversity relationships, while important to understand in their own right, have the potential to reveal the underlying mecha...
Preprint
Positive interactions have been hypothesized to influence plant community dynamics and species invasions. However, their prevalence and importance relative to negative interactions remain unclear, but are fundamentally important for both theoretical and applied ecology. We examined pairwise biotic interactions using over 50 years of successional da...

A classic theory proposes that plant xylem cannot be both highly efficient in water transport and resistant to embolism, and therefore a hydraulic efficiency-safety trade-off should exist. However, the trade-off is weak, and many species exhibit both low efficiency and low safety, falling outside of the expected trade-off space. It remains unclear...

Studies that test community assembly hypotheses in observational communities frequently evaluate patterns for plots or entire communities, yet studies that examine assembly patterns across spatial scales show that they are greatly influenced by scale. Here, we test the spatial dependency of patterns of relatedness and plant height for all individua...
Article
Leaf venations have elements with relatively low elasticity than other leaf tissue components, which are supposed to contribute to leaf biomechanics. A better mechanistic understanding of relationships between vein traits and leaf mechanical properties is essential for ecologically relevant interpretation of leaf structural variations. We investiga...

Phylogenetic analyses are essential for disentangling how environmental filtering and competition determine species coexistence across spatial scales. Inner Mongolia steppe has strong environmental gradients, but how the phylogenetic relatedness of co-occurring species and phylogenetic signals of functional traits change across spatial scales remai...
