Scaling Local Species-habitat Relations to the Larger Landscape with a Hierarchical Spatial Count Model

  title={Scaling Local Species-habitat Relations to the Larger Landscape with a Hierarchical Spatial Count Model},
  author={Wayne E. Thogmartin and Melinda G. Knutson},
  journal={Landscape Ecology},
Much of what is known about avian species-habitat relations has been derived from studies of birds at local scales. It is entirely unclear whether the relations observed at these scales translate to the larger landscape in a predictable linear fashion. We derived habitat models and mapped predicted abundances for three forest bird species of eastern North America using bird counts, environmental variables, and hierarchical models applied at three spatial scales. Our purpose was to understand… CONTINUE READING
