Tropical mammal functional diversity increases with productivity but decreases with anthropogenic disturbance

Avariety of factors can affect the biodiversity of tropicalmammal communities,
but their relative importance and directionality remain uncertain. Previous
global investigations of mammal functional diversity have relied on range
maps instead of observational data to determine community composition. We
test the effects of species pools, habitat heterogeneity, primary productivity
and human disturbance on the functional diversity (dispersion and richness)
of mammal communities using the largest standardized tropical forest camera
trap monitoring system, the Tropical Ecology Assessment and Monitoring
(TEAM) Network.
