  • The spatial distribution of a species can be characterized at many different spatial scales, from fine‐scale measures of local population density to coarse‐scale geographical‐range structure. Previous studies have shown a degree of correlation in species' distribution patterns across narrow ranges of scales, making it possible to predict fine‐scale properties from coarser‐scale distributions. To test the limits of such extrapolation, we have compiled distributional information on 16 species of… CONTINUE READING
