A mechanism model for biodiversity distribution pattern

From Santa Fe Institute Events Wiki

CSSS Santa Fe 2007


The popular way to predict the large-scale species diversity pattern is Statistical Model. It generally classifies geographical space by mapping through environmental features space. But it is a static phase. I will be more interesting if we can figure out the dynamic of diversity pattern on the time dimension, which I would like to call is mechanism model. -Wenyun Zuo
