Assessing endemism at multiple spatial scales, with an example from the Australian vascular flora

Laffan, Shawn; Crisp, Michael

Description

Location: Australia. Methods: Endemism is inherently scale dependent. Therefore, the Corrected Weighted Endemism (CWE) index used by Crisp et al. [J. Biogeogr. (2001)28:183] is extended to account for species samples in local neighbourhoods as a Spatial CWE index. This then allows an analysis of how the degree of endemism of a location (cell) changes with spatial scale. The quality of the Spatial CWE index results are assessed using three spatial randomizations at the species level with and...[Show more]
