    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Irvine, California 92697, USA
    Ecology 88:1877-88. 2007
    ..We conclude that metabolic theory, as currently formulated, is a poor predictor of observed diversity gradients in most terrestrial systems...

    Bradford A Hawkins
    Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, University of California, Irvine, California 92697 USA
    Am Nat 170:S16-27. 2007
    ..A strong secondary effect arises from dispersal of clades from centers of origin and subsequent radiations. Overall, the diversity gradient is well explained by niche conservatism and the "time-for-speciation" hypothesis...

    Oecologia 140:633-8. 2004
    ..Turnover rates and scaling effects, on the other hand, although perhaps useful for detecting faunal changes and beta diversity at local and regional scales, are not strong explanations for the owl diversity gradient...
