Shapes and functions of species–area curves: a review of possible models
Aim  This paper reviews possible candidate models that may be used in theoretical modelling and empirical studies of species–area relationships (SARs). The SAR is an important and well-proven tool inExpand

Shapes and functions of species–area curves (II): a review of new models and parameterizations
This paper has extended and updated my earlier list and analysis of candidate models used in theoretical modelling and empirical examination of species–area relationships (SARs). I have also reviewedExpand

A unified approach to the Richards-model family for use in growth analyses: why we need only two model forms.
This paper advances a unified approach to the modeling of sigmoid organismal growth. There are numerous studies on growth, and there have been several proposals and applications of candidate models.Expand

Scale‐dependence in species‐area relationships
Species-area relationships (SARs) are among the most studied phenomena in ecology, and are important both to our basic understanding of biodiversity and to improving our ability to conserve it. ButExpand

Species–area relationship: separating the effects of species abundance and spatial distribution
Summary 1. The species‐area relationship (SAR) has long been used to describe biological diversity across spatial scales. Theoretically, we can describe SARs exhaustively from patterns of speciesExpand

The SLOSS debate--whether a single large reserve will conserve more species than several small--of the 1970s and 1980s never came to a resolution. The first rule of reserve design states that oneExpand

The importance of samples and isolates for species–area relationships
Species―area relationships (SARs) are a key tool for understanding patterns of species diversity. A framework for the interpretation of SARs and their prediction under different landscapeExpand

How to allow SAR collapse across local and continental scales: a resolution of the controversy between Storch et al. (2012) and Lazarina et al. (2013)
Up-scaling species richness from local to continental scales is an unsolved problem of macroecology. Macroecologists hope that proper up-scaling can uncover the hidden rules that underlie spatialExpand

Arrhenius and Gleason revisited: new hybrid models resolve an old controversy
Aim  Studies have typically employed species–area relationships (SARs) from sample areas to fit either the power relationship or the logarithmic (exponential) relationship. However, the plots fromExpand

Choosing the right sigmoid growth function using the unified‐models approach
Growth of the young is an important part of the life history in birds. However, modelling methods have paid little attention to the choice of regression model used to describe its pattern. The aim ofExpand
