Alejandro A. Royo and Todd E. Ristau Stochastic and deterministic processes regulate spatio-temporal variation in seed bank diversity Journal of Vegetation Science 24
We utilized a 63-yr forest stand chronosequence to assess variability in seed bank community composition. Our sampling design allows us to test changes in diversity over time and among sites. This work documents seed bank richness and abundance (alpha diversity) declines over time and finds that even across sites experiencing similar histories, among-site variability (beta diversity) increases as sites age.
