Scientific Diagrams

The following diagrams are not organized in any particular order. At some point, when I have several linked, I’ll organize them by categories.

  1. Soares et al. 2022

Islands are becoming taxonomically and functionally more similar after losing unique bird species and gaining common widespread birds.

  1. Pilowsky et al. 2022

Modeling the mechanisms that govern the structure and dynamics of biodiversity.

  1. Riva & Nielsen 2020

Six key steps for functional landscape analyses of habitat change

  1. Broadley et al. 2019

Space use is one factor affecting detections on CTs. Here, two aspects of space use are considered: home-range size and movement rate.

  1. Naves-Alegre et al. 2022

Results of the spatial and spatio-temporal co-occurrence analyses between pairs of species, both qualitative co-occurrence and quantitative GLMs (spatial co-occurrence) and GLMMs (spatio-temporal co-occurrence) that relate the abundances of the species.

  1. Rodrigues et al. 2022

Synthesis of the observed impacts of land-use transition on mean annual evapotranspiration (ET) and average land surface temperature (LST) in the Cerrado.

  1. Palmer et al. 2022

Dynamic landscapes of fear: understanding spatiotemporal risk.

  1. Grames, Schwartz, Elphick. 2022.

Conceptual flowchart of a systematic process to develop conceptual models of alternative hypotheses in which (a) the scope of the research question is formally defined, (b) a systematic review is conducted, (c) researchers extract authors’ hypotheses as implied causal relationships that are (d) merged into a graphical model that can be (e) analysed to identify trends in scientific thinking.

  1. Magle & Fidino 2018.

Transition probabilities between the three possible states a habitat fragment could transition between from 1 year to the next.

  1. Suraci et al. 2022

Beyond spatial overlap: harnessing new technologies to resolve the complexities of predator–prey interactions.

  1. Gamez & Harris 2022

Conceptual diagram of a vertical forest ecosystem.

  1. Siren et al. 2022.

Forecasting species distributions: Correlation does not equal causation.

  1. Ford & Goheen. 2015.

Conceptual Framework for Evaluating Alternative Hypotheses for a Three-Level Trophic Cascade Involving a Large Carnivore, its Herbivorous Prey, and Plants.
