Phone Call 2/24/09

  • 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

Update 4/22/09

  • 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.

Update 6/3/09

  • 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.

Update 6/22/09

  • Click here for the recent Harte et al paper on biodiversity scaling.
