Species diversity and community structure indices (richness, diversity and evenness) are typically derived from contemporary biological survey atlases to identify conservation areas or to determine macroecological-environment relationships. Surprisingly, there are few studies based on national taxa surveys that describe and measure the influence human disturbance patterns may have on these ecological measures. This study uses various spatial statistical methods to examine and model large-scale spatial structu…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
