Dealing with overdispersed count data in applied ecology

  title={Dealing with overdispersed count data in applied ecology},
  author={Shane A. Richards},
ing ecological complexity by identifying key biological processes, and the factors that affect them, is important when solving applied ecological problems (e.g. Hilborn & Mangel 1997; McPherson & DeStefano 2003; Clark 2007), as the effectiveness of a management action is likely to depend upon the processes that dominate a system (Walters 1986). Hence, it is important that ecologists should be able to compare their data reliably with multiple, process-derived, ecological models. It is common for… CONTINUE READING
