A method is proposed to partition the variation of species abundance data into independent components: pure spatial, pure environmental, spatial component of environmental influence, and undetermined. The new method uses pre-existing techniques and computer programs of canonical ordination. The intrinsic spatial component of com- munity structure is partialled out of the species-environment relationship in order to see if the environmental control model still holds. The method is illustrated… CONTINUE READING
