RESIDUAL SPATIAL AUTOCORRELATION IN MACROECOLOGICAL AND BIOGEOGRAPHICAL MODELING

Guetchine Gaspard
Macroecological and biogeographical modelers have predicted the distribution of species across space relying on the relationship between biotic processes and environmental variables. Such a method employs data associated, for instance, with species abundance or presence/absence, climate, geomorphology, and soils. Statistical analyses found in previous studies have highlighted the importance of accounting for the effects of spatial autocorrelation (SAC), which indicates a level of dependence between pairs of nearby observations. A consensus has existed that residual...
