Estimating Rates of Local Species Extinction , Colonization , and Turnover in Animal Communities

  title={Estimating Rates of Local Species Extinction , Colonization , and Turnover in Animal Communities},
  author={Thierry Boulinier and James Hines and Kenneth H. Pollock and John R. Sauer},
Species richness has been identified as a useful state variable for conservation and management purposes. Changes in richness over time provide a basis for predicting and evaluating community responses to management, to natural disturbance, and to changes in factors such as community composition (e.g., the removal of a keystone species). Probabilistic capture–recapture models have been used recently to estimate species richness from species count and presence–absence data. These models do not… CONTINUE READING
