Abstract
Studies integrating phylogenetic history and large-scale community assembly are few and many questions remain unanswered. Here, we use a global coastal dune plant dataset to uncover the important factors in community assembly across scales from the local filtering processes to the global long-term diversification and dispersal dynamics. Coastal dune plant communities occur world-wide under a wide range of climatic and geologic conditions as well as in all biogeographic regions. However, global patterns in the phylogenetic composition of coastal dune plant communities have not previously been studied.
