Joint Species Distribution Models to Study Species and their Interactions

David Warton (University of New South Wales) interviews Otso Ovaskainen (University of Helsinki) about his two recent articles in Methods in Ecology and Evolution. David and Otso talk about studying communities of species and their interactions via joint species distribution models, the advances made by Otso’s papers and future developments in this field.

Both of the articles discussed are now available on the Wiley Online Library. You can find them here:

Uncovering hidden spatial structure in species communities with spatially explicit joint species distribution models (by Otso Ovaskainen, David Roy, Richard Fox and Barbara Anderson)

Using latent variable models to identify large networks of species-to-species associations at different spatial scales (by Otso Ovaskainen, Nerea Abrego, Panu Halme and David Dunson):
