Generalized Linear Latent Variable Models for Multivariate Count and Biomass Data in Ecology

Niku, Jenni; Warton, David I.; Hui, Francis; Taskinen, Sara


In this paper we consider generalized linear latent variable models that can handle overdispersed counts and continuous but non-negative data. Such data are common in ecological studies when modelling multivariate abundances or biomass. By extending the standard generalized linear modelling framework to include latent variables, we can account for any covariation between species not accounted for by the predictors, notably species interactions and correlations driven by missing covariates. We...[Show more]
