An evaluation of randomization models for nested species subsets analysis

  title={An evaluation of randomization models for nested species subsets analysis},
  author={Rosamonde R. Cook and James F. Quinn},
Randomization models, often termed “null” models, have been widely used since the 1970s in studies of species community and biogeographic patterns. More recently they have been used to test for nested species subset patterns (or nestedness) among assemblages of species occupying spatially subdivided habitats, such as island archipelagoes and terrestrial habitat patches. Nestedness occurs when the species occupying small or species-poor sites have a strong tendency to form proper subsets of… CONTINUE READING
