Motifs in bipartite ecological networks: uncovering indirect interactions

Abstract: Indirect interactions play an essential role in governing population, community and coevolutionary dynamics across a diverse range of ecological communities. Such communities are widely represented as bipartite networks: graphs depicting interactions between two groups of species, such as plants and pollinators or hosts and parasites. For over thirty years, studies have used indices, such as connectance and species degree, to characterise the structure of these networks and the roles of their constituent speci… Show more

“…, Olito and Fox , Simmons et al. ). Studies testing mechanisms for interaction turnover rarely validate that their proposed mechanisms are correctly predicting observed interactions, and thus, the observed similarity between empirical and predictive models of interaction turnover may be arising for the wrong reasons (Olito and Fox ).…”

“…A recent study by Simmons et al. () used a motif approach and demonstrated that it was significantly more effective at describing network structure than traditional network metrics. Further, when Baker et al.…”
