Title: Measuring temporal variability of population density: a critique
Authors: Xia, Xuhua
Boonstra, Rudy
Issue Date: 1992
Publisher: University of Chicago Press
Citation: American Naturalist, Vol. 140, No. 5. (Nov., 1992), pp. 883-892
Abstract: Many authors (e.g., Connell and Sousa 1983; Hansson and Henttonen 1985a, 1985b; Schoener 1985; Ostfeld 1088; Mackin-Rogalska and Nabaglo 1990) have recently compared temporal variation in population density among different taxa or among different population within the same taxon. There are many problems associated with this approach, and most generalizations made in these articals are not valid. In this note, we analyze in detail one specific example and highlight inherent problems associated with such an approach.
