Paper on agricultural wetlands in press

Our paper with colleagues at the University of Central Florida is in press at Agriculture, Ecosystems & Environment. Our work in agricultural wetlands embedded in two types of pasture management regimes (intense management and semi-natural) showed that land management results in different wetland communities (not surprising), but can also influence the relative role of local, niche-based factors and regional, dispersal-based factors that drive local biodiversity. Interestingly, this modulating influence of pasture management on local diversity differs by taxonomic group (insects, vertebrates, plants), an important consideration when restoring wetland communities in disturbed landscapes.
