The relative importance of niche-based (species sorting) and neutral (e.g., dispersal) processes in structuring natural communities is a topic of considerable debate and practical importance in conservation and restoration planning. Furthermore, we know little about how the relative importance of these processes vary across different taxonomic groups. Such knowledge is especially wanting in stream ecosystems. The authors of this paper argue that niche-based control is most important for each of three dissimilar groups of species (stream diatoms, macroinvertebrates and sessile bryophytes), but traits that determine dispersal ability unrelated to organism size modify the strengths of these niche-based relationships.
