Consistent patterns of high alpha and low beta diversity in tropical parasitic and free-living protists

Journal Article
Lentendu, G., Mahé, F., Bass, D., Rueckert, S., Stoeck, T., & Dunthorn, M. (2018)
Consistent patterns of high alpha and low beta diversity in tropical parasitic and free-living protists. Molecular Ecology, 27(13), 2846-2857. https://doi.org/10.1111/mec.14731
