        Introduction. Elevational gradients are important systems to investigate patterns of species richness and functional diversity, as they provide heterogeneous habitats and climatic conditions along short distances (Korner, ; Sanders and Rahbek, ).The variation in elevation influences the abundance and distribution of mammal species, but species may respond differently to this gradient Cited by: 1.

      Abstract. To determine the generality of avian diversity patterns, we investigated patterns of elevational zonation shown by birds and mammals along the eastern slope of the Andes Mountains in southeastern Peru. The strong environmental gradient sampled, entirely within Peru's Manu National Park and Biosphere Reserve, supports highly diverse faunas.   Habitat complexity and small mammal diversity along an elevational gradient in Southern Mexico INTRODUCTION The study of local elevational gradients has great potential for increasing our knowledge about both regional and global scale diversity processes and the implications of climate change.

We aimed to evaluate the relationship between species turnover and elevation in rodents, and particularly to assess two assumptions at the local scale: (1) species turnover is higher at an intermediate elevation; and (2 Cited by:   The diversity found for each community was consistent with that described for other forest soils and altitudinal gradients (second objective); (iii) although the submontane site showed higher bacterial and fungal diversity, it was not possible to detect any clear pattern in richness/diversity shifts of bacterial or fungal diversity along the Cited by: This study examined patterns in the species richness and abundance of small non-volant mammals along a tropical altitudinal gradient in north-eastern Australia.
