Model-based ordination for species with unequal niche widths

Hui, Francis; Veen, Bert van der; Hovstad, Knut A.; Solbu, Erik B.; O'Hara, Robert B.


It is common practice for ecologists to examine species niches in the study of community composition. The response curve of a species in the fundamental niche is usually assumed to be quadratic. The centre of a quadratic curve represents a species' optimal environmental conditions, and the width its ability to tolerate deviations from the optimum. Most multivariate methods assume species respond linearly to niche axes, or with a quadratic curve that is of equal width for all species. However,...[Show more]
