Spatial pattern and ecological analysis

  title={Spatial pattern and ecological analysis},
  author={Pierre Legendre and Marie Jos{\'e}e Fortin},
The spatial heterogeneity of populations and communities plays a central role in many ecological theories, for instance the theories of succession, adaptation, maintenance of species diversity, community stability, competition, predator-prey interactions, parasitism, epidemics and other natural catastrophes, ergoclines, and so on. This paper will review how the spatial structure of biological populations and communities can be studied. We first demonstrate that many of the basic statistical… CONTINUE READING
