Description: Aim We examined species composition of urban forests from local to global scales using occurrence and abundance information to determine how compositional similarity is defined across spatial scales. We predicted that urban forests have become more homogeneous world-wide, which should result in minimal scale dependence that is more pronounced for non-native species, especially when considering abundance information.
Keywords: Abundance, biotic homogenization, composition dissimilarity, occurrence, trees, urban areas
