From iSEEM project: Phylogenetic Diversity Theory Sheds Light on the Structure of Microbial Communities

Quick post.  Another paper is out based on the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation funded iSEEM project I co-ran with Jessica Green and Katie Pollard.

PLOS Computational Biology: Phylogenetic Diversity Theory Sheds Light on the Structure of Microbial Communities.

O'Dwyer JP, Kembel SW, Green JL (2012) Phylogenetic Diversity Theory Sheds Light on the Structure of Microbial Communities. PLoS Comput Biol 8(12): e1002832. doi:10.1371/journal.pcbi.1002832.

It has one of my favorite paper figures ever.

Figure 1. The local community and metacommunity framework casts local biodiversity of coexisting species in terms of a sampling process from a larger reference pool, or metacommunity. 
And the paper is definitely worth checking out.

  1. Phylogenetic tree is the way of showing evolutionary relationships among various biological species, it's good representation
    actually its worth checking out.
