Abstract Multimetric indices (MMI) are extremely useful indicators of anthropogenic disturbance, but that usefulness is a function of how well they have been calibrated for natural spatial and temporal variability. Nonetheless, there have been very few studies regarding the effects of such natural variability on MMI scores and metric selection, and even fewer studies on the effects of minimizing the mean of metric correlations. To do so, we calibrated and validated several adjusted and… CONTINUE READING
