Inference for changes in biodiversity

Abstract

We wish to formally test for changes in the taxonomic diversity of a community, especially in the presence of high latent diversity. Drawing on the meta-analysis literature, we construct a model for diversity that accounts for covariate effects as well as sampling variability. This permits inference for changes in richness with covariates and also a test… (More)
