"Here, we employ a spatially explicit metapopulation model to investigate the extent to which the effects of local extinction on selectively neutral cultural diversity and change are sensitive to intergroup cultural transmission - the rate at which cultural variants are transmitted between groups. Our results show that the level of intergroup...
