A Bayesian Solution to the Modifiable Areal Unit Problem
(Springer-Verlag, Berlin, 2009)
The Modifiable Areal Unit Problem (MAUP) prevails in the analysis of spatially aggregated data and influences pattern recognition. It describes the sensitivity of the measurement of spatial phenomena to the size (the ...
From introduction to equilibrium: reconstructing the invasive pathways of the Argentine ant in a Mediterranean region
Determining the geographical range of invasive species is an important component of formulating effective management strategies. In the absence of detailed distributional data, species distribution models can provide ...
How does the spatial structure of habitat loss affect the eco-epidemic dynamics?
Habitat loss is considered as one of the primary causes of species extinction, especially for a species that also suffers from an epidemic disease. Little attention has been paid to the combined effect of habitat loss and ...
The effect of landscape heterogeneity on host–parasite dynamics
Environmental heterogeneity has been shown to have a profound effect on population dynamics and biological invasions, yet the effect of its spatial structure on the dynamics of disease invasion in a spatial host–parasite ...
On the scaling patterns of species spatial distribution and association
Understanding how species distribution (occupancy and spatial autocorrelation) and association (that is, multi-species co-distribution) change across scales is fundamental to unlocking the pattern formation in population ...
