Modelling extinction risk in multispecies data sets: phylogenetically independent contrasts versus decision trees

Bielby, Jon; Cardillo, Marcel; Cooper, N.; Purvis, A.

Description

Many recent studies of extinction risk have attempted to determine what differences exist between threatened and non-threatened species. One potential problem in such studies is that species-level data may contain phylogenetic non-independence. However, the use of phylogenetic comparative methods (PCM) to account for non-independence remains controversial, and some recent studies of extinction have recommended other methods that do not account for phylogenetic non-independence, notably decision...[Show more]
