Does the self-similar species distribution model lead to unrealistic predictions?
J. Harte et al. demonstrated that the power law form of the species–area relationship may be derived from a bisected, self-similar landscape and a community-level probability rule. Harte’s self-similarity model has been ...
Modeling species distributions by breaking the assumption of self-similarity
Species distributions are commonly measured as the number of sites, or geographic grid cells occupied. These data may then be used to model species distributions and to examine patterns in both intraspecific and interspecific ...
Capturing the ‘droopy tail’ in the occupancy-abundance relationship
The intraspecific occupancy–abundance relationship is a widely used descriptor of species distributions, with potential value to conservation and pest management for predicting species abundance from occurrence data. Six ...
A self-similarity model for occupancy frequency distribution
The shapes of interspecific range-size distributions at scales finer than the geographic range are highly variable. However, no numerical model has been developed as a basis for understanding this variation. Using ...
Measures, perceptions and scaling patterns of aggregated species distributions
Non-random (aggregated) species distributions arise from habitat heterogeneity and nonlinear biotic processes. A comprehensive understanding of the concept of aggregation, as well as its measurement, is pivotal to our ...
