A Comparison of Some Methods for Analysing Changes in Benthic Community Structure

  title={A Comparison of Some Methods for Analysing Changes in Benthic Community Structure},
  author={Richard M. Warwick and Kenneth Robert Clarke},
Statistical methods for analysing changes in community structure fall under the three general headings of univariate, graphical/distributional and multivariate. These methods are applied to a variety of benthic community data (macrobenthos, meiobenthos, corals, demersal fish), from a variety of localities (intertidal/subtidal, temperate/tropical) and over both spatial and temporal scales.
