We investigated the relative importance of successional age, environmental heterogeneity, landscape structure and spatial structure on β-diversity of tropical dry forests at different spatial scales. The magnitude of β-diversity decreased with increasing spatial grain and successional age. Both the environment and the spatial structure influenced β-diversity at the local grain size, environmental factors were more important at the landscape grain.
