Macroecological consequences of biotic and abiotic factors in marine ecosystems through time

Abstract:

This dissertation statistically investigated putative biotic and abiotic drivers of ecological characteristics over the spatial scale of ocean basins and temporal scale of millennia to millions of years. For three fundamental hypotheses in evolutionary ecology, I compared patterns of natural experiments from the fossil record against expectations from theory. The first empirical study appraised the hypothesis that competition restricts geographic distributions at the species level, and thus t...
