Title: Hierarchical analysis of species distributions and abundance across environmental gradients

Author: Diez, Jeffery; Pulliam, Ronald H.;

Date: 2007

Source: Ecology, 88(12), 2007, pp. 3144?3152

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication

Description: Abiotic and biotic processes operate at multiple spatial and temporal scales to shape many ecological processes, including species distributions and demography. Current debate about the relative roles of niche-based and stochastic processes in shaping species distributions and community composition reflects, in part, the challenge of understanding how these processes interact across scales.

Keywords: conditional autoregressive models, environmental gradients, Goodyera pubescens, hierarchical Bayesian framework, niche, Orchidaceae, spatial scale, species distributions, Tipularia discolor
