Untangling direct species associations from indirect mediator species effects with graphical models

Popovic, Gordana C.; Warton, David I.; Thomson, Fiona J.; Hui, Francis; Moles, Angela T.


Ecologists often investigate co‐occurrence patterns in multi‐species data in order to gain insight into the ecological causes of observed co‐occurrences. Apart from direct associations between the two species of interest, they may co‐occur because of indirect effects, where both species respond to another variable, whether environmental or biotic (e.g. a mediator species). A wide variety of methods are now available for modelling how environmental filtering drives species distributions. In...[Show more]
