Pattern and process of biotic homogenization in the New Pangaea.

Pattern and process of biotic homogenization in the New Pangaea.
Proc Biol Sci. 2012 Oct 10;
Authors: Baiser B, Olden JD, Record S, Lockwood JL, McKinney ML
Abstract
Human activities have reorganized the earth’s biota resulting in spatially disparate locales becoming more or less similar in species composition over time through the processes of biotic homogenization and biotic differentiation, respectively. Despite mounting evidence suggesting that this process may be widespread in both aquatic and terrestrial systems, past studies have predominantly focused on single taxonomic groups at a single spatial scale.
