Title: Estimating regional plant biodiversity with GIS modelling

Author: Iverson, Louis R.; Prasad, Anantha M.; Prasad, Anantha M.;

Date: 1998

Source: Diversity and Distributions. 4: 49-61.

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: We analyzed a statewide species database together with a county-level geographic information system to build a model based on well-surveyed areas to estimate species richness in less surveyed counties. The model involved GIS (Arc/Info) and statistics (S-PLUS), including spatial statistics (S+SpatialStats).

Keywords: Landscape ecology, spatial statistics, autocorrelation, multiple regression, biodiversity, geographic information system, Illinois Plant Information Network
