We examined habitat–driven species assemblages and species distribution patterns at three different spatial scales for the three life stages of two censuses of a 25-ha mixed dipterocarp forest at Sinharaja (Sri Lanka). Although the pronounced ridge-valley gradient and contrast of south-west versus north-east aspect created consistent habitats, local species assemblages at Sinharaja forest are jointly shaped by neutral and niche processes.
