  • March 14th, 2018

Next Wednesday 14th of March 12:00am at Seminar room ICBiBE - SS6 (lower-ground floor, institutes building), Dr. Renato Henriques da Silva (IRSTEA-National Institute for research in sciences and technology for environment and agriculture) will give a Seminar on "Searching for predictable assembly processes in freshwater fish metacommunities"

SEMINAR(i): Searching for predictable assembly processes in freshwater fish metacommunities

WHO?: Dr. Renato Henriques da Silva (IRSTEA-National Institute for research in sciences and technology for environment and agriculture)

WHAT?: Assembly processes in freshwater fish metacommunities

WHEN?: Wednesday 14/3/2018 – 12:00 am                      

WHERE?: Seminar room ICBiBE - SS6 (Institutes building floor -1)

ABSTRACT:

The development of the metacommunity theory has highlighted the importance of taking regional dispersal into account to understand how species are assembled in local communities. Metacommunity studies have used two main approaches to seek for general processes regulating metacommunities: variation partitioning analysis to tease apart the influence of environmental and spatial factors and Elements of Metacommunity Structure to determine which distributional pattern best fit an empirical metacommunity. I will show how I’ve used these two approaches to search for non-random patterns and underlying assembly processes in three aquatic ecosystems with contrasting landscape structure: temperate lake-fishes in Canada, floodplain-fishes in Brazil and riverine fishes in France.
