Phylogenetic turnover during subtropical forest succession across environmental and phylogenetic scales

Ecol Evol
PMCID: 5743486
PMID: 29299283
DOI: 10.1002/ece3.3564
call_split See protocol

[…] n the respective age threshold. All calculations of phylogenetic community structure were carried out on phylogenetic, cophenetic distance matrices, using the packages “vegan” (Oksanen et al., ) and “spacodiR” (Eastman, Paine, & Hardy, ) in the R statistical package (R Development Core Team, ) and SPACoDi 0.10 (Hardy, ). To identify clades that significantly contributed to phylogenetic turnover be […]


Stochastic assembly in a subtropical forest chronosequence: evidence from contrasting changes of species, phylogenetic and functional dissimilarity over succession

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5013490
PMID: 27599883
DOI: 10.1038/srep32596

[…] r in the process of succession.Chao-Jaccard’s dissimilarity index was calculated using the R package ‘vegan’. The Bst and τst values and null models of Bst and τst was calculated using the R package ‘spacodiR’. Linear mixed models were fitted using the R package ‘lme4’. The significance of fixed effect variables were computed using ‘lmerTest’ package, and multiple comparisons were conducted using […]


Using Plant Functional Traits and Phylogenies to Understand Patterns of Plant Community Assembly in a Seasonal Tropical Forest in Lao PDR

PLoS One
PMCID: 4482738
PMID: 26115369
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0130151

[…] Both phylogenetic community structure analyses and trait dispersion analyses were implemented in R v3.0.1 [] using picante, APE, Geiger, ade4, spacodiR, FD and cluster packages. To investigate variation in community structure with spatial scale, we repeated all analyses at the plot (0.25 ha) and subplot (0.01 ha) scales.Mean Phylogenetic Dis […]


Characterizing the Phylogenetic Tree Community Structure of a Protected Tropical Rain Forest Area in Cameroon

PLoS One
PMCID: 4061019

[…] d Magnoliales clades. For each clade the coefficients described above were calculated under the 1s model (999 randomization of tree tips). This was done by using the spacodi.per.nodes function in the SpacodiR . […]


Cryptic Diversity in Indo Australian Rainbowfishes Revealed by DNA Barcoding: Implications for Conservation in a Biodiversity Hotspot Candidate

PLoS One
PMCID: 3400673
PMID: 22829879
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0040627

[…] rtitioning approach of Hardy and Senterre . The index of phylogenetic community structure, denoted as ∏ST, was computed and its significance was tested through 10,000 permutations using the R package SpacodiR . This index provides a standardized estimate of phylogenetic community structure: ∏ST <0 in case of phylogenetic dispersion across communities (i.e., species present in the same locality ten […]
