Nestedness of north-west European land snail ranges as a consequence of differential immigration from Pleistocene glacial refuges

We investigated whether ranges in continental biota are nested. We propose a test for nested subset structure which can detect nestedness even if there are several sets of nested subsets as expected on a larger geographical scale. The test is based on a Monte Carlo simulation with a null model that...
