The central role of mean-variance relationships in the analysis of multivariate abundance data: a response to Roberts
Warton, David I.; Hui, Francis
Summary The mean-variance relationship is a central property of multivariate abundances – it has been shown that when not accounted for, potentially serious artifacts can be introduced to analyses. One such effect is the confounding of location and dispersion. Roberts (in press) recently argued that mean-variance relationships are not important in understanding properties of distance-based analyses, and that row standardisation fixes the problem of apparent location-dispersion...[Show more]
