Modeling count data of rare species: some statistical issues

Cunningham, Ross; Lindenmayer, David


Most species abundance data show that a small number of species contribute the vast majority of individuals to a community. Thus, most taxa in a community are uncommon or rare. Yet such species will frequently be of ecological, conservation, or management interest.
