Disentangling drivers of amazonian and community structure across geographic and environmental gradients.

Tropical forests face increasing pressure as a result of resource extraction and conversion. Numerous studies currently examine the impacts of anthropogenic disturbance in modifying forest composition, with arthropod communities highlighted as integral components in these systems. However, these are based on a limited knowledge of the forces shaping unmodified ecological communities, particularly for Amazonian habitats. Given the critical role which leaf litter communities play in ecosystem functioning, it is of pressing importance to examine how these communities are structured, before examining responses to variation across multiple scales.
