An empirical and mechanistic explanation of abundance-occupancy relationships for a critically endangered nomadic migrant

Webb, Matt; Heinsohn, Robert; Sutherland, William J; Stojanovic, Dejan; Terauds, Aleks


The positive abundance-occupancy relationship (AOR) is a pervasive pattern in macroecology. Similarly, the association between occupancy (or probability of occurrence) and abundance is also usually assumed to be positive and in most cases constant. Examples of AORs for nomadic species with variable distributions are extremely rare. Here we examined temporal and spatial trends in the AOR over 7 years for a critically endangered nomadic migrant that relies on dynamic pulses in food availability...[Show more]
