Zeta diversity as a concept and metric that unifies incidence-based biodiversity patterns
(The American Society of Naturalists, 2014-11)
Patterns in species incidence and compositional turnover are central to understanding what drives biodiversity. Here we propose zeta(ζ)diversity; the number of species shared by multiple assemblages, as a concept and metric ...
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 ...
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 ...
Parameter landscapes unveil the bias in allometric prediction
1. The criteria for choosing the appropriate line-fitting method (LFM) and correction estimator for determining the functional allometric relationship, and for predicting the Y-variable accurately are controversial. A ...
