Introduction (C 1998 British Ecological Society 600

Almostall attempts to predicttheeffect of global on species'rangesandabundance makeuse warming of'climate & Maywald1985;Nix mapping' (Sutherst

1986; Kohlmann,Nix & Shaw 1988; Rogers& Ran& Jeifree1996).This dolph 1993;Porter1995;Jeifree is thevenerable(Latreille1819)and attractively simple idea that range and abundance are determinedby the individualorganism'sphysiologicalresponseto

climate,particularlytemperature.It remainsinfluential(Hoffmann& Blows 1994) and has beenwidely used in ecoclimatics(Rogers 1979; Caughley etal. 1987; Parry 1990; Sutherst1990; Carter, Parry & Porter 1991; Porter,Parry& Carter 1991; Scott & Poynter1991; Beerling1993; Jeffree & Jeffree 1994). If it were true,species rangeswould simplyfollow shiftsin theircharacteristicclimate envelopes and changes due to global warmingcould be predicted easily,givenadequatemodelsoffutureclimate.Populationsof organismsare,however,affectedby a multitudeofadditionalfactorswhichcomplicatethissimple view(Lawton 1995),especiallythosethatproduce horizontaland verticalintegrationof populations. Predictionsfromclimatemappingignorethe potentiallymost potentof these:speciesdispersaland the multitudeof complexspeciesinteractions, themselves affectedby climate (Kingsolver 1989) and already known to influencerange and abundance (Connell 1961;Paine 1966;Lawton& Hassell 1984;Price1992). The importanceof dispersalis thatit disruptsthe dependenceof populationson locallyactingclimate, allowinglocal presenceand abundance to be influenced by other,distantpopulations.This, in the real world, creates networksof interdependentpopulationsthatinfluenceeach other.In metapopulations (Gilpin & Hanski 1991; Hanski & Gilpin 1997) and central-marginalpopulations (Boorman & Levitt 1973;Brussard1984)withsource-sink dynamics(Pulliam 1988),local presenceand abundanceare strongly influencedby dispersalbetweenpopulations.Many sinkpopulationsmay onlypersistiftheyreceivesustained immigrationfrom sources elsewherein the range(Watkinson1985; Rodriguez,Jordano& Fernandez Haegar 1994). Under such conditions,widespreadin nature,dispersalwillalterrangesand abundance predictedfromthe physiologicalresponsesof individualspecies. Similarly,both horizontal(competition)and vertical (enemy-victim)interactionswill affectspecies because these interactions ranges and distributions, are unlikelyto remainunchangedunderglobalwarmaffectedby climate ing. If species are differentially change, as climate mapping sometimes predicts & Jeffree (Jeffree 1996),theirinteractions maybe significantlyaltered or even totallydisrupted(Peters 1992; Walter & Patterson1994) leading to the dissociationof currentspeciesassemblagesand the formationof newones. That suchfracture has beenproduced by individual species' responses to climate change in the past is supportedby an increasing amountof evidenceforboth animals(Graham 1992; Valentine& Jablonski1993; Coope 1995) and plants (Davis 1981, 1986; Overpeck,Webb & Webb 1992; Brubaker& McLachlan 1996). It is likely,therefore, that climatechange will produce, not replicatesof (C 1998 British currentassemblages,butnewconstellations ofspecies Ecological Society (Walter & Patterson 1994), 'non-analogue' associJournalofAninmal Ecology,67, 600-612 ationsabsentfromthecurrentbiota (Roy etal. 1996).

will It is unlikelythattheeffects of theseinteractions be confinedto theedge of speciesranges,as has been suggested(Sutherst,Maywald & Skarratt1995),and realisticassessmentsofrangeand abundancechanges requireconsiderationof the overallpatternof interrelationships (Cammell& Knight1992). by Because distribution and abundanceare affected predictionsbased dispersaland speciesinteractions, on climatemappingmustbe seen,at best,as simplya 'null model' of expectedspecies displacementwith climatechange.In practice,this'null model' is likely to be in errorto an unknowndegreebecauseitignores of distribution thebioticeffects and abundance. In thestudyreportedhere,a simplelaboratorysystemwas used to demonstrate a possiblegeneralparadigmforthe responseof speciesassemblagesto climate change. Dispersal, competitionand enemyvictim interactionsare shown to have important effects on distribution and abundanceand, in systems theeffects ofglobal wherethesefactorsare important, notto be thesimpleconsewarmingare demonstrated responses. quences of individualspeciestemperature Species rangesand abundance in systemsincluding along experimental dispersaland speciesinteractions temperatureclines are shown to be substantially fromthose suggestedby the physiologyof different single species and, consequently,range and abundance in assemblagescannotbe predictedfromthose recordedforsinglespecies.The studydemonstrated thattheresponsesofsimpleassemblagesto simulated globalwarmingwerenotpredictablefromthespecies' distributionand abundance on the clines before warming.



Three Drosophilaspecieswereused: D. nielanogaster Meigen, D. sim1ulans Sturtevantand D. stbobscur7a Collin, and a parasitoid wasp Leptopiliniaboula7di (Barbotin,Carton & Kelner-Pillaut).The responses ofthisgroupingare likelyto be paradigmaticofmany animal assemblages,as the threeDrosophilaspecies do not have specializedlifehistoriesor larval diets. the four species are an elementof a Furthermore, naturallyoccurringspecies assemblage. Drosophila occur fromthetropics and D. simnulans nielcanogaster to, in Europe,about latitude54?N.

Experimental systemsconsistedofeightPerspexcages (each 100 x 150 x 300mm) linked in series (see Table 1 forterminology). The eightcages were connectedtogetherin pairs and each pair housed in a incubator.The tubingconnectingthe cages different was 30 mm in diameterbecause this size restricted dispersal.Up to fivereplicatesystemswere accommodatedin each groupoffourincubators(Fig. 1) and thereweretwosuchgroups.The incubatorsin a group were initiallyall set to a nominal 20?C and temperatureclineslatercreatedby settingtheincubators

To simulateglobal warmingthe overalltemperature of theclineswas raisedby 5 ?C (Bennetts1995) to 15, 20, 25 and 30 ?C ('hot' clines).Temperatures measured byprobesinsidethecages did notdeviatesignificantly fromthe incubatorsetting(mean deviation= 0 28 SD

In normalrunning,however,temperatures wereless variable(95% CI = 0 88?C). Each of the cages containedsix food tubes which were replaced sequentiallywith a freshtube containing50 mL standard,cereal-basedDrosophilamedium (Shorrocks1972). The cages werereprovisioned at the rate of one tube everyhalf generation,thus, because generationtimeis inverselyrelatedto temperature,hottercages werereprovisioned moreoften but Dr-osophilaat the four different temperatures receivedthesame amountof food per generation.In

Experimentalpopulationswere assessed by weekly counts of the adult Dr-osophilaon a standard 80 x 80 mm gridfixedon the rearwall of each cage. Because D. inelanogasterand D. siniullans are morphologicallyverysimilar(e.g. Patterson1943; Moore 1952) and cannot be distinguishedwithoutdetailed examination,the standardcounts were adjusted by theproportionsofthesetwospeciespresentin weekly samplesof 100-150fliesdrawnfromeach cage. Estimatesof thereal populationsin each cage werethen made by applyinga seriesof calibrationcurvesto the countdata. These curveswereproducedby releasing knownnumbersofflies(between50 and 1000foreach speciesand each temperature) intoexperimental cages and countingthenumberson thestandardgrid.This partialstandardcountwas closelycorrelatedwiththe real numberof adult fliesbut the linearrelationship overestimated numbersat boththelowestand highest densities.Biologicallymore realisticsigmoidcurves [withgeneralformy = k/(l + e"-()], whichreflected thespatialbehaviourof thefliesweretherefore fitted separatelyto the counts for each species and temperature(Table 2). In two of the 15 calibrations,for D. simltlansand D. subobscuraat 30?C, the sigmoid curveprovidedno betterfitbetweenrealnumbersand counts than did the overall mean numberof adult flies.Consequently,experimentalpopulationsof D. simnulansat 30?C wereestimatedas the overallmean forD. subobsctura, butthiswas unnecessary whichdid not occur at 30 'C. To avoid the initialphases of populationincreaseand to standardizethetimeperiod consideredforeach treatmentthe analyseshere are confinedto countsmade betweenweeks5 and 25. CAGE




The distributionand abundance of each species of Drosophilawas firstassessedwhendispersalwas possible betweenincubatorsbut in the absence of tembetweenincubatorsand without peraturedifferences interspecificinteractions.Nine one-species series,

three replicatesfor each species, were initiatedby adding25 male and 25 femalefliesto all eightcages in a series(a totalof 400 fliesperseries).The start-up dates of these replicates,and for those in all other treatments,were staggeredto avoid alterationsin externalconditionscausingcorrelatedchangesacross replicates.To determinethe effectof a temperature the discline on singlespecieswithoutinteractions, tributionand abundanceof the threespeciesin onespecies cold clines were then remeasured.The cage serieswereconvertedto clinesby resetting the incubatorsto thespecifiedcold-clinetemperatures. DISPERSAL

A featureof this studyis the explicitinclusionof dispersalin theexperimental system.However,itproved impossibleto assess dispersalratesin the clines accurately by directly monitoring flies moving between temperaturesbecause numerousflies circulatedin the connectingtubeswithoutenteringthe carriedout cages at eitherend. Tests weretherefore to discoverwhetherdispersalhad a major effecton the distribution and abundanceof individualspecies in the systemby preventingdispersalaltogetherin one-speciesclines.Nine closed clines,threereplicates foreach species,werecreatedby blockingthe tubes betweenincubatorsin establishedcold one-species open clines. INTERACTIONS

The effectsof two kindsof interspecific interactions wereexamined;thosebetweenDrosophilaspeciesand those involvingenemy-victim interactionsbetween and theparasitoidL. bo-tlar-di. Dr-osophila Interactions between Drosophila species were assessedin twoways.First,to determine theoutcome of interactionsbetweenpairs of Drosophilaspecies was notpossible whendispersalbetweentemperatures threereplicatesofeach pair-wisecombinationofspecies wereestablishedin single,unconnectedcages at all fiveclinetemperatures (10, 15,20, 25 and 30?C). The cages were sampled weekly until one species was absent fromthreeconsecutivesamples. Second, the effectof interactionswas determinedin a system,

These populations wereclose to thosereachedby D. subobscur-a whenit was on itsown (Fig. 2c). As a consequenceof thesechangesto Drosophila rangeand abundance,thepresenceof theparasitoid also increasedflydiversity because Simpson'sD was reducedat 10and 15'C (respectively, t= significantly 607, d.f. = 4, P < 005; t = 342, d.f. = 4, P < 005)

it would be expectedthat thesethreespecieswould clinesin the orderthemselvesalong the temperature orderof theirtemperature optima,occurringat less abundancein neighbouring parts of the clines.This was not thecase in thepresentstudy. Dispersal substantiallymodifiesthe pictureand allows species, in the absence of interactionswith otherspecies,to occupylargerrangesthanphysiology or the rangesin blocked clines would suggest.The 'fundamental'niche (Hutchinson1958) in the single of each of the Drosophila dimensionof temperature species is thereforesmallerthan the realized niche whendispersalis possible;thatis,theDrosophilaform sinkpopulations(Pulliam 1988) in partsof thecline. An analogous situationoccurredforplantson sand dunes (Watkinson1985) and is a featureof sourcesink population dynamics. The dispersal rates betweentemperaturezones in clines in the present studyare higherthan theyare likelyto be formany organismsin nature,even though individualDrosophilacan disperseoverlargedistancesof 5-500km (Gressit& Nakata 1964;Jonesetal. 1981;Coyneetal. 1982). Nevertheless,this systemdemonstratesthe potential effectof long-distancedispersal such as occursin, forexample,the pest insectsNilaparvarta lugenisand Heliothisvirescens.Because dispersalcan evidentlybe veryimportant,should species' ranges shiftas a resultof climatechange,thuschangingthe spatialpatternof source-sink dynamics,speciesabundance and patternsof occurrencewill also change. Under thesecircumstances, 'null model', simplecliwill not accuratelypredictnew maticextrapolations, rangesand abundance. The degreeof inaccuracyis unknownbut would be greatestin specieswithsubstantialsinkpopulationsin partsof theircurrentdistribution. The resultsof single-cagepair-wiseinteractions indicatethattemperature influences theoutstrongly The data conformto thegeneral come ofcompetition. patternthat cool-adapted species are competitively

On temperature clines, therefore,species with different temperature preferences shouldreplaceeach otherwithlittleoverlap. However, in two-speciesand in three-species clines this did not happen, because there is considerable species overlap maintainedby dispersal, whichopposescompetitive exclusion.Nevertheless, in theexperimental systemin thisstudytheintroduction ofcompetitors changesrangeand abundanceas competitorsare wellknownto do in nature(Connell 1961; Lawton & Hassell 1984).The effects differed between species,withD. stibobscwl)a abundancebeingreduced more than that of D. simiiilains in two-speciesclines, and D. simoulanssuffering morethaneitheroftheother speciesin three-species clines. Theory shows that synergismsbetweendispersal and interspecific interactions havethepowerto induce ininsectpopulations(Kareiva 1990; spatialpatterning Holmes etal. 1994) and thereis evidence that the spatial distributionof the westerntussock moth, by parasitism(Brodmann, Orgyiavetusa,is restricted Wilcox& Harrison1997).It is extremely unlikelythat all the speciesinvolvedin phenomenaof thesekinds will be affectedin the same way by climatechange, and existingspeciesassemblagesare thusbound to be disrupted.The degreeof disruptionwill depend on theintensity and thescale of theseeffects. Thus rangeand abundanceare strongly influenced both by the identityand the numberof competing species,and individualspeciescan be differently affecof othercompetitors in ted,dependingon theidentity the assemblage. Consequently, if each species respondsto climatechangein a different way,as the widespreadoccurrenceof non-analoguecommunities as suggestsis verylikelyfor organismsas different insects(Coope 1978, 1995), mammals (Graham & Lundelius1984;Grahametal. 1996)and plants(Davis 1986; Davis & Zabinski 1992), it must be expected that existingcombinationsof species will break up and new combinationswithdifferent relativeabundancewillformas speciesrespondand migratediffertheidentityand number entially.Inevitablytherefore of competitorsare likelyto change.The multiplenatureof rangeconstraintsis also evidentin data from a quite different source. Britishmacrolepidoptera occupy,on average,only0 37% of the geographical range of theirlarval food plants and in manycases muchlessthanthis(Quinn,Gaston & Roy 1997).The precisereasons forthis discrepancyare unclearbut mothsevidentlyrequiremore than just theirlarval food plant and have other,sometimessevere,constraints on their distribution.Under these Cirg 1998 British cumstances it is extremelyunlikelythat changes in Ecological Society nal ofAnim11al food plant and moth distributionswill be closely Jouri Ecology,67, 600-612 coupled.

Giventheimportanceofthesecompetitive phenomena, it is extremelyunlikelythat changes in range and abundancewillbe accuratelypredictedbyclimate mapping or single-speciesresponse norms alone. Again,themagnitudeof thediscrepancyis unknown; itwilldependon thenumberofcompetitors, theintensityof competitionand theextentto whichpotential showdifferential competitors rangechangesas climate changes(Graham 1992;Valentine& Jablonski1993; Coope 1995;Brubaker& McLachlan 1996). The introductionof a naturalenemyin the form of L. boulardialso has markedeffectson the three Drosophilac species.The increasein D. stibobscuraat 10?C is intriguing, itselfdoes not occur as L. boutlairdi at 10?C. The flymusttherefore be respondingto the parasitoid's suppressionof Drosophilaelsewherein theclineand thusa reductionin thenumbersofcompetitorsdispersing intothe10'C cages.The parasitoid thusfavoursD. subobsctira at lowertemperatures by fromtheother reducingthecompetition itexperiences D. mcelanogasteris two species.At hightemperatures favouredbecause, althoughthe parasitoidoviposits in D. nielanogaster, membersof theothertwo species thatit attacksare also killed.As a consequenceofthe on D. melanogaster and itsindirect wasp's local effects effectson D. subobscura,presenceof the wasp promotescoexistenceat 15'C. The presenceofD. subobsctiraat 15'C in a systemwhereit interactswithtwo otherspeciesis thusdetermined with byitsinteraction a natural enemyand not merelyby its individual indicatethatthewasp and physiology.These findings theDrosophilaspeciesareinvolvedincomplexindirect interactions (Holt & Lawton 1994). Similarcomplex interactionsare imputedfor two grapevine-feeding leafhoppersand a sharedparasitoid(Settle& Wilson betweentwo aphid spec1990) and are demonstrated ies and their natural enemies (Muller & Godfray 1997). Because all speciesareenmeshedin a webofnatural enemiesin theformof predators,parasitesor pathogens, such dynamicsare likelyto be frequent.It is veryunlikelythat all the interacting organismswill respondin preciselythe same way to climatechange and thus,in directconsequence,existingenemy-victiminteractions willbecomeuncoupledand newones established.This uncouplingor coupling of interactions by global climate change may have major impactson speciesrangesand abundance.It is once again evidentthat such impactswould override,or greatlymodify,changesarisingdirectlyfromspecies' individualresponsesto climatechange. This studyhas shownthatdispersal,horizontaland verticalinteractions have major effects on theranges and abundance of the speciesmakingup an assemblage. They modifyor disruptthe linksbetweenclimate and species' local presenceor local abundance
