- Summary of Josh's method and comparisons
- JG comments:
- Elaine's work and Woodcock show that you can't use Harte (slope of distance-decay fails unless species are laid out in a specific way)
- Having a solution is a new thing
- Has notes on her efforts in this direction
- Looked at effect of sampling on Harte derivations (the problem seems to be more than sampling)
- Look at eqn 1 and 2 in Morlon paper
- UK biodiversity mtg: how to scale diversity up?
- that community is using statistical modeling
- results depend a lot on the community structure assumptions
- can let z depend on area, make it scale dependent
- Josh will write up derivations
- JG will send her notes, slides from UK, some more papers, and serpentine & Australian fungi data set
- Josh and Katie have been working on inferring taxa-area relationships from distance-decay relationships. For an overview of some of their thoughts, click here.
- Josh and Katie have been thinking about regression models for distance-decay relationships, which are a key component of their approach for inferring taxa-area relationships from distance-decay relationships. For an overview of some of their thoughts, click here.
- Click here for the recent Harte et al paper on biodiversity scaling.
