The relationship between phylogenetic similarity and phylogenetic turnover along five spatial scales for BCI and DHS.
The relationship between phylogenetic similarity and phylogenetic turnover based on spatial simultaneous autoregressive error model across scales for the BCI (A) and DHS (B) plots. Y-axis is regression coefficient of ses.RaoD against NRI. The independent variable is phylogenetic diversity index NRI and the dependent variable is phylogenetic turnover ses.RaoD, which is the standardized effect size of RaoD of a null model. Null Model-I (NM-I) shuffles species names across all species in each plot, while Null Model-II (NM-II) randomizes the location of mortality according to species- and size-specific survival probability and the location of recruitment according to species-specific dispersal ability. The black line was from NM-I, and the red line from NM-II. ‘**’ indicates p value<0.001 and >0.0001. ‘***’ indicates p value<0.0001.
