Abstract:
Based on a comprehensive dataset of lepidopteran herbivores recorded from the BEF sites, we tested the contribution to herbivore species co-occurrence of herbivore phylogenetic relatedness, plant diversity and functional traits, and spatial scale. We found that Lepidoptera co-occurrence was negatively associated with their phylogenetic relatedness, tree diversity and defensive traits, but positively associated with nutritional functional traits. Further, species co-occurrence was higher at larger spatial scales (tree species or plot) than at smaller scale (individual trees). Our results provide evidence supporting both environmental filtering and competition exclusion hypotheses, and highlight the significance of functionality in shaping species coexistence of herbivores in plant-arthropod systems.

Definition:
Tree species identity: A total of 40 locally common tree species were planted on the two sites. The tree species composition at the two sites differed, with two non-overlapping species pools of 16 broadleaved canopy species at each site. Moreover, an overlap of eight tree species in the 24-species mixtures was planted on both sites.
