Measuring ecological niche overlap from occurrence and spatial environmental data
Aim Concerns over how global change will influence species distributions, in conjunction with increased emphasis on understanding niche dynamics in evolutionary and community contexts, highlight theExpand

Spatial pattern and ecological analysis
The spatial heterogeneity of populations and communities plays a central role in many ecological theories, for instance the theories of succession, adaptation, maintenance of species diversity,Expand

Use of resistance surfaces for landscape genetic studies: considerations for parameterization and analysis
Measures of genetic structure among individuals or populations collected at different spatial locations across a landscape are commonly used as surrogate measures of functional (i.e. demographic orExpand

Spatial Analysis: A Guide for Ecologists
The spatial and temporal dimensions of ecological phenomena have always been inherent in the conceptual framework of ecology, but only recently have they been incorporated explicitly into ecologicalExpand

The consequences of spatial structure for the design and analysis of ecological field surveys
In ecological field surveys, observations are gathered at different spatial locations. The purpose may be to relate biological response variables (e.g., species abundances) to explanatoryExpand

A balanced view of scale in spatial statistical analysis
Concepts of spatial scale, such as extent, grain, resolution, range, footprint, support and cartographic ratio are not interchangeable. Because of the potential confusion among the definitions ofExpand

Considering spatial and temporal scale in landscape‐genetic studies of gene flow
Landscape features exist at multiple spatial and temporal scales, and these naturally affect spatial genetic structure and our ability to make inferences about gene flow. This article discusses howExpand

Comparison of the Mantel test and alternative approaches for detecting complex multivariate relationships in the spatial analysis of genetic data
The Mantel test is widely used to test the linear or monotonic independence of the elements in two distance matrices. It is one of the few appropriate tests when the hypothesis under study can onlyExpand

Community ecology in the age of multivariate multiscale spatial analysis
Species spatial distributions are the result of population demography, behavioral traits, and species interactions in spatially heterogeneous environmental conditions. Hence the composition ofExpand
