Assessment of Latitudinal Gradient in Species Richness of Sphaerotherium| Chapter 3 | New Visions in Biological Science Vol.9

Forest millipedes were used to test the Tropical Conservativism Hypothesis and the Biogeographical Conservativism Hypothesis. The Biogeographical Conservativism Hypothesis proposes that the processes involved are not unique to the tropics, but rather rely on historical biogeography to determine species richness distribution. To discriminate between the two ideas, the latitudinal diversity gradient (LDG) was assessed in…
